    I bought an individual pot of instant mash with onions and I was shocked at the syn content, something like 7 syns! It was less than 200 calories for the whole pot... I made it anyway but threw it away after the first taste as it was horrible!

    I nearly had a glass of Innocent Rasberry and Cranberry smoothie last night. Other half said 'well it's all fruit and nothing added so it must be free' glad I double checked on website...it worked out about 6 syns for a short tumbler full!

    most of the time when I eat out I don't even think about deserts, it's not really worth it, most of the time they're not even home made so it's not great.

    Doesn't it!

    It's bagels that upset me. I *heart* bagels so much, but at 11 syns, I am trying to wean myself off them.

    Hmm. I often wonder whether the syn values on some things that are really bad for you aren't artificially jacked-up in order to discourage us from eating them, if you see what I mean. :rolleyes:

    Noooo, nothing that sinister! :giggle: It just occurred to me a while ago that it wouldn't be too hard for them to massage certain syn values to discourage us from eating seriously naughty things, that's all. :) Must be getting paranoid in my old age. :8855:

    Kitty-anne...I think an ordinary KK is 10 syns! I think that's worth it TBH! I wouldn't have one very often, but as a treat every now and again, I think that's a syn bargain.

    FWOARGH!

    I've not usually got a sweet tooth, but I can make an exception for KKs.

    They've got them right next to the entrance at my local tesco, which is just evil!

    I know :drool: sorry!!

    I'm not sure why bagels are so high. They're around 200 cals and about 0.2 saturated fat, which isn't too bad I think.
    It's probably because they're all super-refined white flour, which isn't good for energy release and stuff...

    They are so lovely though! My favourite hangover remedy is a plain bagel with bacon and a fried egg! My lovely OH does them for me sometimes if we've had a skinful the night before, but I count the 11 syns :)
