    This might not be classed as a treat as such but my coffee costs me 2 points each :eek: as I use semi skimmed milk approx 100ml at 1 pnt and 2 teaspoons of sugar at 1/2 pnt each... so 2 points for my cuppa of which I have 2 or 3 per day!!!

    It's quite annoying really coz I could have a delicious milky way for 2 pnts and if I felt greedy I could snaffle 3 of the beautys for the same pointage :D

    I think I aught to change my coffee don't you?? I just hate the taste of sweetner :( yuk

    What Treats can you not do without??

    changing your milk would be helpful and maybe try it with one less sugar? or sweetner like you say

    Have you tried splenda? It doesn't taste nearly as artificaial as some. Changing to skimmed would help too. You won't notice after a while.

    I guess I'm gonna have to try sweetner again, seems the sensible choice :rolleyes:

    and I might grab a pint of skimmed on my way back from my walk, no harm in trying. It's not too bad at the mo coz I'm on 24 points but when I drop points it'll be rediculous to waste precious points in such a way :eek:

    Thanks guys.;)

    try splenda its the most "natural" tasting sweetener, or maybe try the half and half sugar you can get now, its half sugar/half sweetener.

    I used to take 2 sugars in tea, but about 2 years ago, I got dared to stop... So I did, and to be honest, it didn't take long to get used to at all :)

    I don't know about coffee, I don't like the stuff, What about that low-sugar stuff, that could be worth looking at? I dont know if that is any better points-wise to be honest!!

    Thanks! Good luck with the low-point coffee, definitely worth trying to skimmed milk too, I had to resort to that on my cereal the other day, [I pinched it off someone at work] and it wasn't half as bad as I was anticipating!!
    I'm even thinking of getting that as standard instead of the green milk :O!!!

    My treat is pepperoni pizza... Im always trying to find a low-point substitute... So far, we have cheese on toast with pepperoni... I've got it down to 4 pts a slice :D

    Mmmmmm alpen bars, I couldn't live without them. Especially choc and fudge. Hope you manage to sort the coffee, shame its such a lot of points. If it has to be the real thing, then may be best to cut down to one cup of coffee, rather than half heartedly drink 3 cups you aren't as keen on, with sweetener etc, hope that makes sense.

    I really miss home made brown bread with real butter and jam. I don't mind flora but it's just not the same. Even the homemade brown bread can be about 2.5 points a slice. so it just ain't worth it.

    I've started having two mini merigues (1pt) with fruit worth 0-1/2pt and a weight watchers yogurt every evening after my dinner, it feels like I'm having a really nice dessert that I deserve!!
