    oxo is 1 syn per cube whereas bovril from the jar is free!!
    To be honest if you are using a cube or 2 in say a shepherds pie for instance and dividing it into 4 meals then the syns are going to be minimal anyway.

    I agree, I try to aim for bovril to be good but if it's out of stock (excuse the pun) then I grab oxo - never going to eat a whole box of the stuff in one go anyway!

    This has made my day, really made me laugh :) thanks!
    12 inches in a foot, 14 pounds in a stone.
    Unless you mean from kg and cm?

    (Don't think we should be encouraging dieting for someone so severely underweight though lol)
