Sorry :d'oh: - should have explained that better. What I meant was that the Mullers which are now free will continue to be free - there has been speculation that they would be synned in the 2010 changes.
A few years ago SW wanted to encourage people to have fewer ready and pre-prepared meal and do more cooking from scratch. Overnight foods that had been free suddenly had syns and some of them large syn values - corned beef, tinned macaroni cheese and spag bol, campbells meatballs being a few examples.
Now there seems to be moves afoot to curb people 'abusing' syn free foods, overindulging and using foods that would normally be part of main meals in ways that they become snacks. We've already seen lasagne crisps fall victim to this and if what we've heard is right pasta quiche will go the same way. I frequently hear of people having 5 plus mullers a day and although we don't do calories that's 500+ a day on just snacks. Giving them a nominal syn value may be an attempt by SW to curb excesses like this.
This is not to say that I agree with this but just to say that we've seen it before in the past and it could happen again
Thanks for that. You've also explained Macaroni Cheese. When I did the SW way a few years ago I loved MC in my jacket spud, so I bought a few tins, and when I checked in the new book they were syned. I thought I had been wrong about what I was eating years ago.
