Over in our Facebook group (where we now have nearly 110,000 members!) one of the hot topics of each week is spotting new products that are Slimming World friendly!
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. So here we are, with the imaginatively named “This Weeks New Slimming World Shopping Essentials”. You can find last week’s over here.
Digestive Thins – 1.5 Syns each
These have been all over Facebook this week! Digestive thins are just 1.5 syns each, and a rather nice treat at the end of the day with a cup of tea.
You can get them in Milk Chocolate & Dark chocolate varieties, and you don’t really notice them being “thin”.
Digestive Thins are priced at £1.59 and for the moment only available at Tesco. No doubt they’ll be available in other supermarkets too.
Mayflower Southern Style Gravy – 3.5 Syns made up as directed (per 100g)
We’re big fans of Mayflower Curry, and did a little squee when we heard about this being available in Home Bargains.
It’s apparently just like KFC gravy, and if it’s anything like the curry – will be delicious!
We’re awaiting news of pricing, but it sometimes appears on eBay for £2.50-£3.00 a box.
It would make a really rather nice addition to our Low Syn KFC recipe!
Sweet Freedom Choc Pot – 0.5 Syns Per teaspoon
We love Sweet Freedom, and are very excited about the news of their new Choc Pot!
By the look of the nutritional values, it may be the same as Choc Shot which is 0.5 syns per teaspoon. Of course, we don’t know yet – we’ll have to wait until it’s released and on Syns Online.
It will be available in Asda stores from the 20th of Feb in the “Free From” aisle. Asda are quickly becoming the most Slimming World friendly supermarket!
Like Choc Shot? Check out our Low Syn Chocolate Orange Waffles!
No Added Sugar Yazoo – 4 Syns each
One of the things I really miss is milkshake, and Yazoo used to be a guilty pleasure of mine!
At just 4 syns each – they’re 1.5 Syns “cheaper” than the full fat equivalent. Not bad at all.
No added sugar Yazoo is available in Asda, and are currently on offer for £1 a pack.
Macaringues – 2 for 1 Syn
We think these Macaringues have been around for a few weeks, but they were brought to our attention by Janie from our Facebook group.
You can fill them with what ever you like, or even use them to dip in some sweetened quark, I can’t wait to get my mouth round one!
Macaringues are available in Tesco (for now) and priced at £2.99 a box!
Sainsbury’s Broccoli Rice – Syn Free
I love a bit of Broccoli, and was delighted to have been tipped off about this by Sharon!
All you do is pierce the bag, microwave it for a couple of minutes and serve. You can of course stir-fry it, steam it or even mix it into some guacamole to make it go further.
It’s Syn free and perfect if you’re trying to cut out the carbs or for an Extra Easy SP day.
Broccoli Rice is available from Sainsbury’s and is priced at £1.25 a pack.
Sainsbury’s Sweet Potato Tagliatelle – Syn Free
When hunting for the Broccoli Rice, I came across this Sweet Potato “Pasta”.
All you do is pierce the bag, microwave it for a couple of minutes and serve. You can of course boil it if you prefer – but I wouldn’t risk over cooking it.
Sweet Potato Tagliatelle is available from Sainsbury’s and is priced at £1.25 a pack.
Muller Light Greek Style Yogurts – Now Syn Free!
Muller have been very busy working on Muller Lights! Last week saw the launch of several new flavours.
This week they’ve been busy changing the recipes of the Greek Style Muller Lights. They used to have a syn value, and still do if the packaging doesn’t say sugar free.
They’re on offer in most supermarkets at the moment, and are available in Lemon, Coconut and Skinny Latte.
Sparkling Ribena – Coming Soon!
We’ve received news that this is coming soon! You can claim a FREE bottle of Ribena HERE!
It will be available in some pub chains inc Harvester’s, Toby Carvery, Ember Inns, Oaktree Pubs, Crown Carveries and Sizzling Pubs very soon – but hopefully soon after perhaps in stores. We’ll have more news about this soon!
