I use packet dumplings and syn them. Can't beat a propper dumping I'm afraid!!

Last time the packet was 30 syns and made 7 portions so not many really.

If you search for cous cous dumplings, they are really nice

I don;tlike couscous, sorry. I've tried variations, but for me a dumpling is a dumpling and worth saving up for a real one occasionally :D

Yup - I like cous cous, but there are things you would never get me making out of it. These include Cous cous cake and definitiely dumplings. All sorts of wrong.

I have never heard of dumpling mixes - I have always made mine from scratch. What is in a dumpling mix?
I always used to use suit and flour but I have started using the packets for ease and they taste just the same. The ones I currently have are Goldenfry original mix and its ingredients are:

Wheat Flour, Beef Fat, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Raising Agents (Disodium Dihydrogen Diphosphate, Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate), Whey Powder, Salt.

Just found this list of ingredients for the Aunt Bessie dumpling mix:
Wheatflour, Vegetable Oil, Whey Powder Raising Agents (Potassium Hydrogen Carbonate, Potassium Monophosphate, Disodium Dihydrogen Diphosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Rice Flour, Salt.

Good grief!

The Goldenfry one sounds a bit better.

I've tried a few of them including sainsburys and I like the Goldenfry one best plus its only about 50p for the box so not a bad price too
