You sure you havent managed to find a garlic Light, or your "light" mayo isnt actually regular? :confused:

According to Hellman's the Light is 297kcal/100g (2 syns/tbsp) and the garlic is 722kcal/100g (5.5syns/tbsp) which corresponds to the syns online values. The regular mayo almost exactly matches the garlic though (and is also 5.5 syns/tbsp).

Looks to me your 'lighter' might actually be the regular mayo...?

if youve found a different "lighter" garlic version Im sure people would like to know where you got it! :D

Woooo it looks like it's all the squeezy ones that say "with a hint/spark/touch of" - they're made with mayo light even tho it doesn't say so on the front! If you check out the NV's:

Chilli
Garlic
Lemon
Plain

all 40/41kcal so 2 syns per level tbsp.

The ones in the jar dont have this value.

Yum chilli mayo light!!! :)

Only the squeezy one that says "with a touch of garlic" - not the other one in the jar.

Just been and got me some of these. Got the jar of garlic tho cos there's loads more for an extra 10p. I checked the info on the back and it says 40 cals for tbsp. Checked the others too and they all the same. Chilli, mustard and lemon. Yum yuma
