    It's something to do with when WW point it raw and cooked or something, it's 2pp to every 100g potato raw though hun :) then you round up or down for the odd grams lol so 50g = 1pp ... 250g = 5pp and so on

    I thought a jacket pointed higher as you eat the skin as well? My phone app also has the higher values for jacket spuds as opposed to normal boiled.

    nope the skin is included it's just the way WW work out the potatoes now a days in the new propoint way a 8pp potato works out to be a 400g raw potato and then weigh's lighter when cooked which is why they have put something like 225g = 8pp because thats when it's been cooked already, sorry probably not explaining right, but just stick to the uncooked raw values of 100g = 2pp :)
