    I am gutted, I read on here somewhere that mugsots are free on an green or extra easy day. I ate two yesterda thinking they are free but I have worked out the syns and they're not!

    The sweet and sour one is 1% fat and works out on SW website syns calculator as 2.5 syns and the chicken one works out as 3 syns.

    Is this true does anyone know but I bought 10 of them yesterday and would rather use my syns for other stuff like wine and crisps!

    If they're not free does anyone know of anything like it that is free that is a great little snack that doesn';t require cooking that I can eat at my desk?

    Hi Couscous

    Our consultant mentioned these on Weds night and said that the 1% fat ones (inc Sweet and sour) are free and that the 3% ones are very low syns. Not sure what % the chicken one is?

    thanks, the chicken is 1% as well - just can't work out why it came out as higher syns when i worked it out. They are so nice I think I'm going to live on them - the sweet and sout free one obviously!

    The sweet & sour, tomato & herb & the chicken one are all free on green, the only one that has syns is the cheese flavour.

    Yes - definitely, any mugshot marked as 1% is free on G/EE. The syns calculator is only a rough guide as it does not take into account free foods etc etc. Mug shots can be found in the syns online part - manufacturer is Mug Shot IIRC

    Yep those 3 mentioned, the S n S, Chicken and Tom ones are all free on Green. I've got sachets of these stashed around my work, in my car, in my work bag and at home. They're just so handy for a quick fix.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I bought a few of each yesterday and my bf likes them as well so I'll give him the cheese and the thai ones and I'll have the free ones. You're all lifesavers

    Hi no i didn't tick the box because i wasn't sure. I guess being pasta i should have ticked the green box but i wasn't sure and thought it better to over syn them than to under syn them. Packed one up for lunch tomorrow - yummy.

    Good to know.

    We tend to grab our lunch at work (we have an oven here, and it's mainly been JP's), but I chipped in with the order last week and stuck some of these on, along with some pasta and sacues, batchelors rice too.

    Yes - if it's free on red or green then it's free on EE.

    And yes - for anything with a syn value you take the lower of the two values on EE.
