Last Words

To conclude, crumpets are fairly low in syns depending on the size you get, most average crumpets have 5 syns for one, however, to save syns you can opt for crumpet thins which only have 2.5 syns per one.

We would be careful when adding butter to your crumpets since this can add an extra 2.5 syns to your crumpet, totalling half of your daily syn allowance, instead opt for a reduced-fat spread to keep your crumpets low in syns.
