General Discussions/Syn Advice
when i followed the plan last time i bought weightwatchers sweets they do some fruit gum like ones that are lush and i think they were only 2 syns per tube they come in packs of four and they do blackcurrant, lemon and lime, tropical fruit, strawberry if you look on the weight watchers web site you should be able to find them i used to buy in bulk and have a tube every day as my treat
Extra mints sugar free - 5 for 1/2 syn
Licorice comforts Panda ones from Holland and Barratt are 2 for 1/2 syn
cant think of any more off the top of my head but if I do I'll let you know
If you like sweet tasting yoghurts all the fruity muller non pie/cake ones are free. I find them far too sweet

sugar free frozen ice pops are mostly free, the calypso ones are 1 syn each and really sweet... ice pops are my life saver !
you could also make scanbran cake ... my favourite is banana and golden syrup (1 syn for the syprup) and healthy extra B for the scanbran !
I make a bread pudding which is divine! I think I have posted it here before but I cant remember! So here hows to do it anyway:
Break 3 slices of weight watchers brown danish bread into small pieces. (I use a blender to do it but it can be done by hand) Add some water to moisten the bread. Beat an egg and add the moist bread pieces stiring well ensuring all of the bread is coated with the egg. Then sift 2 tsps of mixed spice and 2 tsp ground nutmeg. Add 2 tsp sweetener and mix well. Add 1 tablespoon of sweet mincemeat and stir in well.
Put in the microwave for 5-6 mins depending on your microwave. It amounts to 1 HE B choice and 2 syns! Once cool sprinkle the top of the cake with sweetener.
It isn't too far away from the real thing I really enjoy it!
