Haribos are a favourite sweet choice for many of us, but since they are high in sugar, we need to have them in moderation to lose weight on the slimming world plan.
Haribos come in different styles and flavours, which means they also have variable syns.
So if you're a Haribo lover, you are in the right place. Below is our ultimate syn guide to all kinds of Haribos to compare syns and keep on track with your weight loss.
The average Haribo has around four syns for a 25g serving, no matter the kind you choose; this makes them reasonably low in syns.
You could have up to around 100g before using all your 15 daily syns, but this would be a lot of sugar, plus the syns change according to the type of Haribo you choose.
Since Haribos are high in sugar, they can be easy to overindulge in, so we recommend measuring out your portions to be more accurate with the syns.
A mini 16g packet of Haribo has 2.5 syns; these might be the better choice if you are craving these sweets but want to avoid overeating them since they have a smaller portion size.
You could have around six packets before using your 15 syn daily allowance.
Below, we've listed some popular kinds of Haribo and their syns so you can see which Haribo type is best for your weight loss.
