    Hey has anyone worked out the pro points in the extra sugarfree chewinggum? I'm getting 7pp? Surely that can't be right? :-s it was free on the discover plan! :-(

    according to the shop book, wrigley's extra ice sugarfree gum (closest one that's in there) is 4PP for a 56g packet.
    I don't really understand how sugarfree gum can have points in it, don't think I'd bother pointing it to be honest, but I don't have chewing gum often!

    In the shop guide, most sugar free gum is 1 pp for the whole packet- ww sugar free sweets are the same so makes sense. But, some sugar free mint were 7 pp for the packet - I was so shocked. Surely its a mistake???

    Surely you dont point gum as you dont swallow it? I can understand pointing mints and what-not as you swallow them.

    The wrigley's extra coolbreeze sugarfree gum

    Protein: 0g
    Carbs: 63.3g
    Fat: 0g
    Fibre: 0g

    My calculator gives me 7pp and you don't even swallow
