    I needed to check this on the SW website, and it wasnt listed on the online list of things, so I had to put in the info myself....
    the main ingredient is potato flakes, so is that the same as dried potato? When I put that as the main free food, it comes out as a free food, but if I put no free food allowance it comes out at 4.5. Hmmmmm Im a tad confused. Anyone help at all.?
    Thanks guys

    If I search the SW site, generic "potato farl" comes up as 2.5 syns per 28g (or 5 points for one, average weight 60g).

    because they are a bread type item, you can't select a free food I am afraid.

    So you can just look at calories and divide by 20 to get the syn value.

    you can only use it for foods without any free food allowance.

    which covers the following:

    Alcoholic drinks
    Biscuits, including cereal bars and savoury crackers
    Bread & crispbreads
    Breakfast cereals
    Cakes & bakery items, e.g. carrot cake
    Crisps & snacks
    Dressings & dips, e.g. salsa, salad dressing
    Fruit - canned, dried and stewed
    Pastry products (sweet & savoury), e.g. salmon en croute, apple pie
    Pizza
    Puddings & desserts
    Sandwich/deli fillers
    Sandwiches and wraps
    Sauces, e.g. jars of tomato-based pasta sauce
    Soft drinks, including yogurt drinks fruit/vegetable juice and fruit smoothies
