    My friend got me a jar of this for Christmas and I didn't really pay attention to it until now. I just entered the nutritional info into Lifeline Online and it says that it is 16 1/2 syns for 100g, and the jar is 213g, and it's huge cause it's basically... Like melted marshmallows. It's 100% fat free and good for when you need something sweet, as you can have a teaspoon and it will last you a while!
    There's no serving size on the jar so I put in 100g and that was 16 1/2
    10g is 1 1/2

    This is on Original, Green and EE.

    Tasty! Although it would be helpful if I had an accurate serving size...

    Flavours come in Original, Strawberry and Raspberry. Might be expensive though as it's American. I have Strawberry! :D

    I can't eat this cos I'm veggie, but I used to eat about two jars of Fluff a week when I was about 10/12! LOVED the stuff! Ididn't even know it still existed. I'm sure there used to be a chocolate version, with layers of nutella type stuff swirled through the big jar of Fluff.

    OMG I'd totally forgotten about that! lol Lucky I AM a veggie, cos I would bankrupt myself on it nowadays! hahahaha

    It is veggie isn't it? The ingredients are: corn syrup, sugar, egg white, artificial flavour, and colours.

    I used to eat it with peanut butter on a sandwich! Now I only use it if I'm going to make american style fudge. I've got half a jar lurking in the cupboard....

    REALLLLLLLLYYYY????? OMFG! It probably is, then. I'll need to google to find out what they use for the colouring, but it sounds promising! WOW

    I'm away for a nose on ebay. I think it's so long since I saw it, I'm pretty sure my Dad used to get it in Fine Fare, or Gateway, before it was Asda! lol

    I did google the colouring myself and it seems fine, no crushed bugs or anything... Lol. I think they might sell it in Selfridges, but then I might just be thinking of the wrong shop. Is Selfridges the one with all the imported foods?

    You can also buy it here:www.americansweets.co.uk
    and here:http://www.cybercandy.co.uk

    I can confirm they sell it in Selfridges. Also, a lot of bigger supermarkets stock it now - definitely in my Asda.

    [STRIKE]it doesn't have gelatine in. just egg whites, corn syrup, glucose and flavouring aparently so nom away! (unless you're actually vegan? or don't eat eggs?)[/STRIKE] SILLY EMMA! *slaps self* always read the whole thread lol!!!

    I got a jar today. I am soooo pleased about the syns in it because I had a tiny nibble and nearly died of an"omgthisisawesome!!!" heart attack.

    btw: ASDA. and not a big one either ;)
