Hi guys

I am sure we all have lots of chocolate leftover, and just wanted to share my tip (and hear from others) of what to do with leftover eggs.

I got a few, including a massive mini eggs one, so have portioned the egg and contents out into freezer bags and put them in the freezer so I can't see them and when I do eat a bag, it takes longer to eat.


My little treat bags each have either:
  • 18g of easter egg chocolate which = 5 syns a bag
  • 8 mini eggs which = 6 syns
  • 20g cadbury buttons = 5.5 syns a bag
Any other ideas to share?

give them away lol thats the only way I will not pig out on them out of sight out of mind :) ... really tho not having chocolate hasn't bothered me at all until this weekend when the kids were leaving it lying around. I have been force feeding it to them so that they are all gone and the temptation is gone :) good job its only twice a year that we have a house full of choc (Christmas and Easter)

I made sure I wasn't given any lol, but have hidden all my daughters eggs!!! When I open one for her I give her way more than I previously would let her have in one go because I want it gone - how awful is that!!!!! Also I keep forcing my hubby to eat up a lot of his - I know if I set it in front of him he will eat it, otherwise it just sits in the fridge cuz hes not really a chocoholic like me!!! I am turning into a 'feeder' lol!!!!!

Melt the chocolate down & dip superfree speed fruit in it - that way you probably won't eat as much and you are still getting the fruit in.

I haven't even thought about it! I've been using my daily syns and just eating them. Have to eat free food for the rest of the day but it's totally worth it! :D

Don't get me wrong mate, I still ate an egg on Sunday- all 50syns worth (hence the 1lb gain this week) but that was the smaller of the 3 I got, so thought some damage limitation was needed with what was left!:D:D:D

Good thinking! I think I may have a gain coming tomorrow... but going to be super good until I get on that scale... and even better after!!

I got one egg after insisting to everyone not to buy me one!! Im not really a chocolate girl, it's more crisps that get me! lol

I then ate the bag of revels and minstrels that came with it, and then ate half the egg!!!

Yesterday evening after searching the freezer for the other half that i hid, i gave it to my OH, with the bag of maltesers that also came with it and said 'eat it before i come round tomorrow, i do not want one single trace of it left'!! lol

I cant believe i ate it really, i dont LOVE chocolate, i am having * week though so this may have contributed to my craving :)

* week is a killer for me - hate it, hate the uncontrollable urges that come over me for chocolate, althought his weekend I have not craved chocolate - it was Lime Dorito's I wanted, so I ate them....

oooh i have a bag off buttons out of an egg but expected them to be very high in syns at 175cals. There is no weight written on the bag, hope its a 20g one for 5 syns! :D

Normally with chocolate 100cals is 5 syns. I would say your bag is 8.5 syns for 175 cals, sorry. Obviously double check the weight but i wanted to let you know :)
