    cadbury highlights lights chocolate mousses 3 syns each (so worth it in my opinion)

    tin of rhubarb in light syrup- 100g= 1.5 syns and a a couple of table spoons of low fat custard- 1 syn

    mc cain rustic oven chips- 100g= 1 syn

    Pink and white marshmallow wafers - 2.5 syns each :)

    another good tip to bear in mind, is that syns for all foods without a free food allowance (which is pretty much all snack type items) can be worked out by dividing the calories by 20.

    So if while shopping you see something you like, you can work out the syns there and then and will know if it is a good syn value or not.

    Remember though that it is only accurate for foods WITHOUT a free food allowance.

    Which is any of the below:

    Alcoholic drinks
    Biscuits, including cereal bars and savoury crackers
    Bread & crispbreads
    Breakfast cereals
    Cakes & bakery items, e.g. carrot cake
    Crisps & snacks
    Dressings & dips, e.g. salsa, salad dressing
    Fruit - canned, dried and stewed
    Pastry products (sweet & savoury), e.g. salmon en croute, apple pie
    Pizza
    Puddings & desserts
    Sandwich/deli fillers
    Sandwiches and wraps
    Sauces, e.g. jars of tomato-based pasta sauce
    Soft drinks, including yogurt drinks fruit/vegetable juice and fruit smoothies
    Soups, all varieties
    Sweets & chocolates
