Flake chocolate has 6.5 syns in a 25.6g bar, making it quite high in syns and consuming nearly half of your daily syn allowance, we would recommend eating these in moderation to avoid using too many syns.

How Many Flakes Can You Eat On The Slimming World?
At 6.5 syns for a 25.6g bar, you could have up to two of these chocolate bars before using up all of your daily syn allowance in the slimming world. These chocolate bars are high in syns due to their pure chocolate ingredients, with the 102g bar having up to 15g of sugar, so should be consumed in moderation.

For a 20g size flake, you are looking at spending 5 syns a bar, making them a great low syn little treat for when you are craving chocolate but don't want to spend too many syns, you could have up to three of them before using all your allowance.
How Many Syns Is A Multipack Flake?
A multipack flake chocolate bar has 3.5 syns for a 14g mini bar, making it low in syns and a good choice if you're craving a little chocolate, but this is low in syns due to the smaller portion size. Only two of them would use half of your daily syn allowance.
