    So, I picked up a can of these babies at Tesco tonight, thinking, 'Ooh, Beans, Free!' But I'm wrong, right? I want to eat them with breaky in the morning, but I can't find the syns for these listed anywhere - does anyone know?

    Found these...

    Tesco, BBQ Baked Beans , 220g can = 0.5 syns

    Thanks! I got some BBQ ones as well - do you think they're the same? They must be new as can't find them on the SW website or anywhere I've looked. Maybe I'll compare the labels...

    If you list the nutritional values we can check it on the Syn calculator :)

    Thank you... I kept forgetting to check this online... have just done it now.

    Tesco Smoky Bacon Beans, half a can (195g) is 2.5 syns.

    Before today I was a 'Syns Calculator Virgin' :eek: so, please correct me if I'm wrong! Here is the info off the can, per 100g.

    Protein, 6.8g
    Fat, 1.5g
    Carbs, 13.3g (4.9g sugar)
    Fibre, 2.7g
    Energy, 99kcal

    Serving is half a can, or 195g.
    I compared labels with Tesco BBQ beans, which are 0.5 syns, and noticed the fibre is almost halved in these new bacon beans (2.7g vs 5.0g) and realised you actually get way fewer beans!
    BBQ is 51% beans, and Bacon is only 38%! I guess, to make room for all the smoky bacon. Hmmm.

    Forgive me, I love to overanalyze things. Just ask my husband. :D

    Still, if they are nice 2.5 is not many Syns :)
