    Just thought I'd let you know the syn value of the new Twix Fino (supposedly lighter and less cals than the original Twix bar).

    Well, it has 2 fingers and each finger is 4.5 syns, so 9 syns for the whole thing.

    Saves 5 syns but still think it's pretty high for a 'light' choccy bar.

    Thanks - I love a nice Twix! If the fingers are the same size, then one would do to curb the cravings - seems a good deal for 4.5 syns!

    They're a bit of a con really. They've removed the biscuit and replaced it with wafer so not so nice. Once I had worked out the syns I gave it straight to hubby to eat, wasn't going to waste my syns on a fraudulant Twix, lol.

    The real con seems to be they are tons smaller than a regular Twix.

    This is what I assume is a normal 2 finger Twix bar:

    Twix Twix 58g twin bar


    [​IMG] 14 Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 14 Syns [​IMG]




    The Fino bar is apparently 20g lighter - so I would blimmin hope it had less syns!

    Twix Twix Fino 38g twin bar


    [​IMG] 9½ Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 9½ Syns [​IMG] Green 9½ Syns




    For comparison, I also looked up a Drifter:

    Nestle Drifter 52g bar


    [​IMG] 13 Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 13 Syns [​IMG] Green

    I tried one of these last week after spotting it in a shop - personally I'd rather spend the extra syns and have a proper Twix - didn't like this at all, and it was a lot of syns for what it was.

    Time Out is nicer as a choc/wafer type snack, I think and is 8.5 syns.

    I tried this tonight. It was very disappointing and not worth 9 syns. :(
