Are any of them any good?
Tempted to get some but just worried that they might not be worth the money...

I'm looking for things that I can stick in my bag for times when I'm out and about or at work and tempted to buy a chocolate bar or raid the office snack selection.....

I like them. I don't have them a lot but I like the salted caramel and the rocky road. Good for having for when I forget HEB choices now I'm at target I can have more or if I need something sweet.

Do they still do the peanut one? I used to love that. Very satisfying on PMT “hungry” days.

Groovee · 20/05/2018 09:30

They have a fruit and nut one now.

No they're not worth the money. Look out for special offers on the shop-bought Fibre One cake bars. Each one is 4 syns. www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/290536406 At the moment they're on offer in Tesco. They sell the chocolate brownie and lemon drizzle ones. You can get the salted caramel or cinnamon ones in other supermarkets.

Hifi bars are 3 syns each. Here's a list of other sweet-fix snacks for 3 syns:
Mini box smarties
Alpen Light ( Jaffa cake and Banoffee are my favourites and free if used as a healthy extra)
Mini milkyway
Large snack a jacks chocolate chip rice cake
12g chomp chocolate bar

Go ahead chocolate covered pretzel bites are about 4 syns
Sainsburys have just started selling Boka bars are 4syns each. There are four flavours. All yummy!

Oooh I love a chomp - will definitely grab some of those - and some of the Fibre One bars when I see them on offer - might skip the hifi bars then

I've always felt disappointed with the fibre one bars. They are so small and feel like a waste of syns!

DextroDependant · 20/05/2018 18:07

I like them, I think they are delicious.

MilkyCoffeeAndSkinnySyrup · 20/05/2018 18:42

Yes I love the chocolate mint one

MyGuideJools · 20/05/2018 23:01

I love them! loads of different flavours and more satisfying than a fibre one or Alpen bar. Alpen taste like cardboard to me.
My favourite is the chocolate orange.
And I don't think £1.95 is a bad price for 6.
Why not try a box?

MilkyCoffeeAndSkinnySyrup · 21/05/2018 07:06

I agree about the fibre one bar. They taste nice but they're really not worth 4 syns... problem with me though is I lack willpower so I never buy anything like that anyway cos I would just go through the whole pack in one sitting.

00100001 · 21/05/2018 07:09

They're just OK. But too expensive for the six tiny bars.

Rather use heb for bread, cereals nuts etc

Bonelessbanquet · 21/05/2018 07:12

I like getting the mini bags of Cadbury fingers and using syns for when I need a sweet fix

MyGuideJools · 21/05/2018 07:38

they only work out 32p each which isn't bad i dont think. I keep one in my work bag for emergencies
For special occasions curly wurlys are 6 synsGrin

00100001 · 21/05/2018 08:28

Yeah but u can get 5 Alpen lights for £1!

Groovee · 21/05/2018 09:08

Party rings in the mini bags are 4 or 4.5 syns. I find they are good for hitting the spot.

scottydoggydoodaa · 21/05/2018 14:30

I have Tesco healthy living chocolate and caramel cereal bars think they are 3 syns each for 2 for hexb. And only 89p for 5!
