    I'm out for lunch today and was going to have a baked potato and tuna mayo.

    I'm going to point 4pp for the potato but how much for a portion of tuna mayo? 5pp???

    Thanks!

    Is it regular mayo? If so it's likely to be higher than 5pp. It's really hard to tell but 30g of mayonnaise (full fat) is 6pp alone - that's two tablespoons so about average for a portion? A can of tuna in brine is 1pp (drained). So maybe about 7pp just to be safe?

    However (and I don't want this to put you off!!) a Wetherspoons Value Meals Jacket Potato and Tuna Mayo is a colossal 24pp!!! :eek::eek::eek: But I have no idea how big that is or what comes with it so do take it with a grain of salt...

    Probably is for the big ones, I looked at the smaller ones since that's more likely to be the portion size to come with a jacket potato.

    I personally point 2pp per 65g of drained tuna (in brine) and 1pp of low fat mayo.

    So for 65g of tuna mayo it's 3pp but to be honest - 65g is a small amount!

    The reason I used full fat mayo was that she said she was going out for it so I assume they'll use fat mayo. :)

    Thanks ladies, think I'll avoid tuna Mayo while eating out from now on - full fat Mayo is just not worth the extra points!
