    I have just been to wilko & got some low sin treats of a pack of ready salted french fries & some cadbury buttons & neither have weights on so I can either look them up on lifeline online. I have noticed this before as well. Does anyone know where they have gone???

    I seem to recall several years ago reading that if something weighed less than 25g I think it was they didn't have to put the weight on. Don't know if that still applies though

    If it has the values for 100grms couldn't you weigh your fries & buttons & calculate the syns that way?

    Or you could google them see if you can find them that way. Othewise I'd look on SW for something simlar & use that syn value;)

    its irritating i know even worse is when whats in the packet is a different weight to what it says, i had a snacki sized crunchie the other day and it had 1 and a half snack sized crunchies in it... surely the extra is syn free?

    Did you buy them in a multipack? In which case the weight, nutritional information, etc., will be on the outer packaging, not the individual wrapper.

    No I got them in wilko on their own. It's got all the nutritional info on but doesn't say how much the bag weighs :confused: I have eaten the buttons & classed it as 8 1/2 syns

    I think a regular (loose) bag of French Fries are 22g. Multipack bags are usually smaller than those bought singly and on the Syns online it says this -

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Walkers Crisps French Fries, all varieties 19g bag[/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][​IMG] 4 Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 4 Syns [​IMG] Green 4 Syns [/FONT]



    [/FONT]

    which I presumed is the multipack weight and also

    Walkers Crisps French Fries, all varieties 22g bag


    [​IMG] 4½ Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 4½ Syns [​IMG] Green 4½ Syns



    which I think is the loose pack.

    I think this is the individual bag of buttons too

    Cadbury Buttons 32g bag


    [​IMG] 8½ Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 8½ Syns [​IMG] Green 8½ Syns






    so you are bang on with saying 8.5!

    Good luck xxx
