Our weekly Shopping Essentials round up is always popular, with plenty of new products to browse through. Each week we choose one particular product to highlight as our Shopping Essentials Top Pick. This is a product that we feel deserves a bit more attention, so that’s what we’re going to do right here. This week, we’ve found these Oreo Thins Coconut.
What are Oreo Thins?
Oreo Thins first appeared on our shelves in 2015 and were an instant hit with Slimming World-ers. All the flavour of a standard Oreo biscuit but with the benefit of fewer calories. We all know that fewer calories means fewer Syns, don’t we!
Oreo were one one the first biscuits to be launched as Thins, with many other brands following in their wake, as Thins gave the opportunity to enjoy the flavour and texture of the original biscuit, but in a thinner version.
So what’s new?
Firstly, the packaging has changed slightly. Older packs come in boxes of 16 split into two packs of eight biscuits. The new packs are larger, containing 32 biscuits in 4 separate packs of 8.
A new flavour
Up to now, Oreo Thins have been available in two flavours, Original and Chocolate Creme. Now a new Oreo Thins Coconut flavour has been added to the range. I sampled some today, purely for research purposes, obviously.
The taste of coconut is quite subtle, so not overpowering at all. In fact, they’re really rather nice!
How Many Syns are new Oreo Thins Coconut?
The traditional Oreo biscuits are 2.5 Syns each, whichever flavour you have. There are two flavours of Oreo Thins on the Slimming World database already, Original and Chocolate Creme. Both of these are listed at 1.5 Syns per biscuit.
The new Oreo Thins Coconut flavour isn’t on the database yet, but using the snackulator, the value works out at 1.5 Syns per biscuit.
To ensure you’re getting the most accurate and up to date information, you should always check the Slimming World website or contact the Syns Hotline.
Where can I buy new Oreo Thins Coconut?
I found these new Oreo Coconut Thins in Morrisons, with an introductory price of £1.00per pack. Usual price is £1.50 per pack.
