    Help please!!!

    Ive a starbuck's date tonight with my chums and have no idea whats lethal and whats not for drinks / snacks?

    I dont do coffee so it would either be hot chocolate and if the syn value is crazy then I'll just stick to bottled water - bit boring but I dont want to use loads of syns for the sake of it.

    Also snack wise what would be best? Thinking shortbread maybe - everything else normally has about a thousand layers of chocolate on it...

    Thanks in advance for any advice :) xx

    Have a peppermint tea... I can't recomend any starbucks treats as they are all too high in syns for me to want to use! The lowest I can see is the Almond biscoti at 8.5syns each, the muffins are 20-24syns

    Take a look at the nutritional information on their website - it will all be 1 syn for every 20 calories

    My husband had a blueberry muffin and when I looked it up it was 22.5 syns! Even the 'skinny' muffins were 17.5 syns!

    How did your Starbucks trip go?

    I stuck with sparkling water+one of the packets of shortbread, 2 pieces at 4 syns each so I ate one then brought the other home for hubby :) my friends were ordering luxury hot chocolates etc so I'm v proud of myself for not giving in :) x

    Well done! It always feels so good afterwards when you've not given in to temptation. I'm going to give Starbucks a wide berth after seeing how synful their cakes are!
