New Slimming World Shopping Essentials – 3/3/17

Over in our Facebook group (where we now have over 145,000 members 😱) one of the hot topics of each week is spotting new products that are Slimming World friendly!

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

Not all of you are in our Facebook group (you should be!), so I thought I’d add it to the website as a weekly feature.

This week we’ve got #sausagegate, Viennese thins, a new Luzodade Zero flavour & more!

You can find all of the previous weeks further down the page.

#SAUSAGEGATE – Porky Lights Syn Value Revised to 4.5 Syns Each

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

If you don’t know about all the drama surrounding the Porky Lights Syn value revision, you must have been hiding under a rock!

This story continues to roll on and on, it even made the front page of a certain national newspaper and we even got a mention from the Daily Mail. Crazy!

I won’t go on and on about what has happened, but the Syn value of Porky Lights has been changed on a temporary basis from 0.5 Syns per sausage to 4.5 Syns per sausage.

As a result of #SAUSAGEGATE, we thought we’d hunt down more delicious bangers, and came across The Protein Food Shop. They were nice enough to send us some sausages, and oh my word, they are delicious!

We whizzed them through the Syns calculator, and they come out at 0.5 Syns each for the Chipolatas and 1 Syn each for the full sized sausages. They even come in different flavours 😱 Cumberland, Lincolnshire, Pork & Leek and Pork.

We’re having some very special Protein Food Shop hampers made up, and they’ll be available very soon.

They already supply a phenomenal amount of Slimming Sausages to members of local clubs in the South East & we’re delighted to spread the word!

Lucozade Zero Original – Syn Free

Lucozade is extending its hugely successful Lucozade Zero range of products with the launch of Lucozade Zero Original.

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

Lucozade Zero Original was the most requested flavour by consumers and joins Orange and Pink Lemonade in the Zero range. Despite only launching in May 2016 it was one of the biggest soft drinks launches of the year.

The low-calorie drink will be available from March 2017 in a 380ml, 500ml and 1l bottle.

We’re not sure what date in March it’ll launch, but we’re sure we’ll see it very soon!

M&S Mini Luxury Hot Cross Buns (36g each) – 5 syns each

I must say I’m elated to see that M&S has these, Mini Luxury Hot Cross Buns out on the shelves so early.

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

Many thanks to Kayleigh in our Facebook group for the tip!

Easter is on its way, and you don’t have to feel you’re missing out on the hot cross bun front.

They’re a little pricey at £2.89 a pack, but Kayleigh assures me they’re worth every mouthful.

Asda Salt & Pepper Turkey Burgers – 0.5 Syns Each

We adore salt & pepper flavours, and we’ve been tipped that these Salt & Pepper Turkey Burgers are the bee’s knees!

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

At just 0.5 Syns each and £2.70 a pack, they’re a bargain! You can get them from Asda, and no doubt as BBQ season rolls in we’ll see other flavours too.

Nature Valley Popcorn, Salted Caramel, Almond & Pretzel Bars – 4 Syns Each

Many thanks to Kayleigh for the tip off about these! Deliciously chewy and flavourful, filling, a decent size so you actually feel like you’ve had a snack and it’s not gone in one mouthful!

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

 

You can get them from most major supermarkets for around £2-2.50 a box.

They have more flavour than many snack bars, although it’s probably due to the sugar.

It does list it in the ingredients but be aware if you are fructose intolerant that, despite not containing any fruit, fructose is high on the ingredient list.

 

Nature Valley Popcorn, Peanut & Sunflower Seed Bars – 4.5 Syns Each

If you’re looking for a quick snack, these Nature Valley Popcorn, Peatnut & Sunflower Seed Bars are pretty tasty.

New Slimming World Shopping Essentials - 3/3/17

They’re like all the other Nature Valley snack bars and all are equally tasty. They’d go well with a cup of tea or coffee or even as a mid morning/afternoon snack.

Like the ones above, they’re pretty high in fructose, so be careful if your fructose intolerant!

You can get them from most major supermarkets for around £2-2.50 a box.
