    have just looked at the back of the bag and the only ingredients are fruit, nothing else, however im confused if it has a syn value or not??

    can someone advise?

    i would also suggest buying this, its great!! cheap and you get as much as you want out at a time!!!

    Yes it's free I used to eat it all the time. As long as there's nothing added frozen fruit is free.

    i literally eat mine straight from the freezer!!! i am addicted to the stuff, it takes a while to eat as its sooo cold but then you get full up quicker!!! also eaten it with yogurt, or sprinkled a broken up fudge bar over some, so it goes hard as well :)

    i am the same as you KDogg, i live in the sticks so try and get as much in as possible when i do venture out. tesco has a bag, its own make but does the trick! at something like £1.05 for a 400gram bag! its not the best variety of fruit, but hay its something and better then a munch on naughty things haha

    Sometimes I eat them straight from frozen but not often cos they hurt my head so I only have a couple. Grapes are better frozen really.

    Usually I semi-defrost them in the microwave but leave them still a bit slushy. Mix it with some creamy yoghurt like Total 2% and its lush:

    Tesco often do their own brand frozen fruit 3 for £5. I get raspberries, blueberries and mango.raspberries and mango I eat frozen as they give me a sweet hit. I eat them like sweets. The blueberries I add to a pot of vanilla mullerlight. Gorgeous!

    Yeah if you puree or cook them you hav to syn them, syns vary between different fruits but they are between about 0.5 - 1.5 syns per 28g (presumably 30g now?)

    How i understand it is that the fruit is free but only if eaten fresh/frozen I it's whole state. If you cook with it or mash it then you have to syn it. This has something about it breaks down the sugars and that it makes it easier to eat. I was told that if it was mushed up you would consume much more and the sugars built up so it needs to be syned.

    If you do any thing to fruit other than eat it whole it has syns so blending adds syns
