    Hello all,

    Just used the syns calculator to work out syns of Tesco beef quarter pounders with seasoning and it came to 2.5 syns each (red/EE).

    However, with syns online, there is an entry for Tesco beef quarter pounders with onion AND seasoning which are 5 syns each.

    Now, my burgers are not the ones with onion, so should I just use the lower syn value? I entered all the amounts correctly, twice, just to make sure. I'm just checking because in this case I could essentially have 2 for the same syns as 1 if I'm right. But if I'm wrong....

    What do you think? Anyone else spotted differences like these?

    I would go with the calculator, syns online often has the wrong ingerdients/portion size and goes out of date quickly, the calc should be accurate if you do it correctly :)

    Thanks CW! I had to get a second opinion because these burgers are delicious and 2.5 syns isn't bad at all.
