We all know that B&M is great for some bargains but what about healthier options? Here are some great products from B&M perfect for your Slimming World journey.
Slimming World buys at B&M – sweet bargains
If you are in a Slimming World group or are a regular in online groups on Facebook you may well have heard of Skinny Whip bars.
They are just £1 a box and each bar is 4.5 syns each. They also do an elusive strawberry flavour but it never seems to be in stock when I go!
These tasty biscuits used to be served in many places with a cuppa but are available in their own right too.
These XL ones are perfect if you want a couple of bites and the chocolate ones are great! The chocolate ones have only one side coated in chocolate.
The Lotus Biscoff XL are £1 for a pack of 10 mini-packs. Each mini-pack contains 2 biscuits. Each of these mini packs is 6 syns.
The Lotus Biscoff with Belgian chocolate is also £1 and contains 7 packs on 3 biscuits. Each individual biscuit is 2 syns.
Cadbury Curly Wurly
I love Curly Wurly bars, don’t you? I am sure they have got smaller over the years though, don’t you think?
These bars are 26g each and 6 syns a bar. This multipack of 4 is £1.
Can you remember when they were 15p each? Does that show my age?
I absolutely love Kinder chocolate, don’t you? This pack for £1 contains 8 mini bars at 12.5g each.
The Slimming World syn value for each bar is 3.5 syns so pretty good for a chocolate fix.
Another favourite of mine from when I was younger. Another I remember for 15p!
This 5 pack is £1 in B&M so not such a change since my memories. Each finger of Fudge is 5.5 syns.
Gullon Sugar Free
This range is great for Slimming World followers as they are tasty biscuits with good syn values. They are also really popular on my Slimming World snack list.
All the pictures packs are £1 each and the syn values vary.
The digestives fare worst at 3 syns each.
The vanilla and chocolate wafers are each 2 syns a biscuit.
The chocolate chip biscuits are also 2 syns each.
The definite winner when it comes to syn values, however, are the Maria biscuits which are a bit like a rich tea and only 1 syn each.
I love these Fibre One bars, they also do a Birthday cake flavour which is delicious but sadly I didn’t see any in B&M.
At £1.49 a box they are cheaper than most supermarkets (unless they have an offer on!) and all just 4 syns each.
I love white chocolate and these little bars are great for a chocolate fix.
Each mini bar is 12g and 3.5 syns. Not bad for a chocolatey treat. This 6 pack is £1 in B&M.
Stuart and Ben love Liquorice but I can’t stand the stuff. It is one of those Marmite like foods everyone either loves or hates isn’t it.
This pack is 69p and each stick is just 2 syns.
This bag is 39p and you can have 10 mini marshmallows for half a syn or 25g for 4 syns.
Why are these not 10p anymore? These 5 packs are £1 each and a Freddo bar is 5 syns.
I have never really had jelly often as I am a vegetarian. That said I was surprised to find this Hartley’s jelly is vegetarian!
The twin packs were £1 each and the single tubs 50p. All flavours of this 10 cal jelly are just half a syn for a pot.
Slimming World buys at B&M – savoury bargains
Mayflower Curry sauce
Have you heard people talking about curry sauce that is low syn and wanted one you just mix up easily yourself?
I make a syn free curry sauce but if you do not have time then these are perfect and low syn too.
This £1 pack of Mayflower Chinese style medium curry sauce mix makes 9 portions and works out at 4 syns a portion.
Mayflower Southern style gravy – make at home KFC gravy
If made as directed you can have 100g for 3.5 syns. The pack is £1.
Rice cakes with sea salt
These simple easy rice cakes with sea salt are delicious, of course they, in my opinion, should not actually be called cakes!
These Good Food Rice Cakes were just 35p for the pack and each cracker (I refuse to call them cakes!) is 28 calories each so around 1.5 syns a cracker.
If you make it as directed on the pack you can have 100ml for 1.5 syns. This large tub is 89p in B&M.
So, Smash used to be syn free when made properly with water. In my opinion, it still should be however Slimming World now syn Smash at 3 syns for 100g (made as directed).
This tub is £1.49 but the choice is yours whether you syn it or not!
Lea & Perrins
However, it is not vegetarian (contains anchovies) so if like me you are a vegetarian look out for Hendersons Relish. If you get through loads of this sauce then finding it for a bargain is always good.
This bottle was £2.09 from B&M so not too different from other shops but if you like it then pick some up when you are shopping for Slimming World in B&M
Mixed Herbs and Chilli Flakes
Do you buy a lot of herbs and spices to flavour your foods? I was impressed by these little tubs.
Each is around 2 inches tall and £1 each. Not as cheap as the bulk packs I usually buy on Amazon but not bad if you prefer to shop in-store or see what you are buying.
This Hellmann’s Low Fat Mayo is around 2 syns a tablespoon and £2 for this big bottle.
Passata is syn free and an absolute staple in my cupboards. Sometimes the expensive stuff is best but 99% of the time I find the cheap ones just as good in a recipe. These cartons are 35p in B&M.
Most Slimming World members and followers love Frylight. It is a 1 calorie spray that replaces oil. It is often £2.29 or thereabouts in supermarkets unless it is on offer.
I like to stock up in B&M as it is just £1.49. They also had a smaller bottle for £1 each but these worked out the better value per ml.
Stock cubes and Stock pots
These are all syn free and we get through loads, do you?
The 18 pack of vegetable stock cubes was just £1.39 in B&M and the 4 packs of stockpots were £1 in each variety.
Roasted red peppers and sliced jalapeno peppers
These roasted red peppers and jalapeno peppers are both in brine making them syn free and good value.
These are just £1 each which for large jars like these 480g each I think is great.
Other bargains to help you from B&M
Hand Sanitiser from B&M
This has fast become a staple in everyone’s homes, bags etc. This 100ml tube was £1.69.
They had various brands and size packs so worth checking those out while you are in store.
It is not often I use baking powder but for some recipes it is perfect.
At half a syn for a teaspoon if you need it in a recipe it isn’t too bad on syns. This tub was £1.19.
Useful stuff for keeping your kitchen clean for cooking lovely meals.
Baking paper and plastic bags
These are other staples for my cupboards I buy in B&M. The baking paper was £1 and the bags £2.
I am sure there are many other bargains that are great on syns but these are my favourites. Do comment and let me know any find you come across.
