Doesn't include sugar puffs, you have to have the unsweetened cereal because obviously sugar contains syns.

Add Splenda to your puffed wheat though, and hey presto, Sugar Puffs!

Sarah Jayne, I wouldn't syn the cereal if I didn't have my scan bran. Same as I wouldn't syn my slices of bread if I was too full to finish the crusts or wouldn't syn my cheese if I only used half of it, or wouldn't syn my milk if I had a couple of cuppas' worth left at the end of the day.

I personally don't syn my healthy extras if I don't eat it all, like for example I have just had 28g of porridge and I'm supposed to have a scan bran with it. But some consultants say that you should. I guess all it means is that I'm not getting the full quota of fibre that a HE B should give me. However, my theory is, with all the healthy fruit and veg I will be eating today, I'm sure I won't be short of any fibre!!!

Im the same as Lentil, I never have the extra scan bran/ryvita with my cereal, I forget to be honest.

And Vixxster we don't have a Home Bargains :( Hopefully be on sale again next week as this box wont last long with the amount you can have :p

I sometimes save my scan bran for after tea, put it in a cup, put some hot water on top, mush it up then add an Options and whack it in the mike for 1 minute, take out, stir and whack back in for another minute.

It gets rid of the scan bran and it's like a branny chocolately pud for after your dinner. Follow it with a big glass of water before bed and it gives you a little 'fat flush' effect for the following morning! :D

Oooh like little sweet snacky crisps? I never thought of it like that! You may indeed be onto a winner there!

Good idea Vixxster, I read somewhere Options isn't suitable for veggies so may have to substitute. Can't remember the last time I ate a choccy pudding!

Lentil yes I'd prob do that too, although it might be too bland on its own & without the milk sweetener wouldnt stick to the cereal...

Oooh no oh dear, let me go check what I have in the kitchen, I have options, highlights AND Horlickseses...

They all contain whey, which contains dairy, which would make it unsuitable for non-lacto vegetarians or vegans.

Does that help? xx

I have dairy so maybe they're ok for me then?! Its when I was reading up on the Mullerlights I also read Options are unsuitable. Will do a little research me thinks! xx

I think if you're veggie and not vegan hot choc are ok. I couldn't see any of the meat-derivative words (locust bean gum, gelatin etc) on the packet, so maybe it's just the dairy derivatives that make them unsuitable?

A swift google should sort you out no doubt? xx

Had a peep on the Options sight, it says the hot chocolates only are unsuitable due to the amount of whey powder used.

Looked it up on the Veggie Society:

Whey - Whey and whey powder are invariably by-products of the cheese making process which mainly uses animal rennet though vegetarian whey is widely utilised in products marked as suitable for vegetarians

I didnt know that! Bah

Ooooh Lisa! In very very small letters at the bottom of my Horlicks extra light sachets are the glorious words 'Suitable for vegetarians'
