    I used to mainly use them on booze, though I'm trying to get our of the habit! Yesterday I 'forced' myself to instead enjoy a Milky Way. It's a tough job :D
    Aside from that I am obsessed with Options and Mini Milks.

    Or on Chicken Chow Mein :)

    And even on Candy Floss !!!!

    I resent spending syns on meals. Especially when there's CHOCOLATE ;) !!!!!!

    If I don't use them on my lunch or dinner, I find myself having to have an Alpen light bar or HiFi bar just to use them up!

    The good thing though, is that you can use them on anything you like :)

    I have half for actimel, a couple for sauce (ketchup/mayo)

    After dinner I have a 'treat' either a mini twix or mini pack of maltesers.

    Sometimes if a red day I use a couple for Tesco HL sausages!
