    I read on here that 2 mentos was half a syn however, I've just been on google an it says there is 10 cal per sweet so that makes 2 sweets 1 syn using the ole 20 cals 1 syn rule.
    Does anyone know any diff? I've been having mentos when I've had a few syns left but I think I've over eaten them.
    Thanks

    The one syn for 20 cals doesnt always work so best to check and if you dont have access to the website then might be best to search here or over estimate :D

    are the mentos you have, sugar free ones??? if not that will explain why they are more syns.

    the 1 syn for 20 calories does work for anything without a free food allowance, the syns calculator wont work it out any different, it does it exactly the same way if there is no free food allowance.
