## Chocolate bars: working out syns for a square.

Bought a 200g bar of Dairy Milk for during the week instead of wine and need to work out the syn value of a square.

Would it be 2 syns, being a 200g bar, or is that wrong?

Can only find syns for 140g and 230g bars in my food directory.

Can't count for toffee!!

what I would do is divide the syn count by the bar size then multiply by the amount of grams you have.

so if a 230g bar is 20 syns for example I would divide 20 by 230 then multiply by the bar size I wanted to calculate, in this case 200g. so 20 divided by 230 multiplied by 200.

then I would divide the syns of the total bar by the number of squares.
hope that makes sense and is the right way to work it out

Thanks Mrmacadoo, got dh to work that out for me because I'm useless lol. He worked it out at almost 1 syn per square.

Hope that's right because I want to replace the wine I was drinking with chocolate instead

With sweets and crisps you can use the 20 calories = 1 syn as a guideline.

This only works for junk food. It's a very handy way of keeping track
