Evening all,

So...I'm normally an Asda/Aldi/Lidl girl, but have a Waitrose gift card burning a hole in my pocket, and we're planning on shopping there this weekend as a bit of a treat! Does anyone in here shop at Waitrose - and if so, is there anything amazing that's syn-free/low syn that I should be looking out for, please? smile

The easy cook range chicken breasts (cajun/lemon&pepper/garlic) are 1 syn each and 3 for £10 had one for dinner tonight

No sure about syns but there are some really nice ready meals. I am on 5:2 and on my fast days really enjoy the Beef in red wine sauce with crushed root veg. 233 calories!

Thanks ladies - will keep an eye out!

Also noticed they do an own-brand chocolate frozen yoghurt that's 3 syns per 100ml...definitely going to get some of that if it's in stock! grin

The Waitrose one, Calzone? I've bought the Asda one before and love it - keen to try this one though as it's lower in syns and therefore I can have more of it grin

The flat iron steak, reasonably priced and no fat to cut off and chuck away! Delicious!

Home-brand chocolate. Bread. Lots of the ready / easy-cook meals.

Thanks ladies!

Definitely going to have to go back. I spent a fortune in there earlier! I've stocked up on their bags of mini choc chip cookies, which are amazing for 1 syn each!

Ooh hate mini choc chip cookies sound yum, I'll look out for those next time I'm in there

That sounds great PurpleAlert, I'll have to try that.

The mini choc chip cookies are amazing GeePee - definitely curb biscuit cravings and so low syn that you can have a few and not feel guilty! They're around the size of a £2 coin (but thicker) and taste amazing!
