    i am confused... i've been eating bacon style rashers chopped up in tomato pasta sauce and carbonara type free sauces and always allowed a couple of syns for them as i know theyre 6.5syns per 150g pack which would do me about 4 times. however! i have found some 'bacon style pieces' in the freezer section of the supermarket which i havent seen before so i thought i'd check the syns in them on the SW site under 'online syns' bit. now they have 'chilled' ones listed and i wondered if this was the same as the frozen ones that come in a bag like the mince/chicken. i sure hope so cos they are free if they are! does anyone know why the rashers are 6.5syns and the chopped up pieces of, essentially the same quorn fake bacon stuff, are free food?

    sorry for long post :rolleyes: xx

    no paperclip, those are the rasher/sliced ones i usually use that are 6.5syns per pack but i picked up a bag of 'bacon style pieces' theyre like small chunks of fake bacon. SW site says bacon style chunks are free but it said chilled and these were frozen, i'm really confused about what difference there was, thanks anyway :) hopefully someone can enlighten me cos i dont get it! hehe

    i think it may be these i have bought but they were definitely in the freezer bitty

    Thanks for that. My husband is a veggie but i like to put bacon in a lot of my sauces, soups etc for extra flavour. I won't have to make 2 different batches now! xx
