How Many Syns In A Mars Bar? Are They High In Syns?
If you are craving a Mars bar on the slimming world diet, good news, you can happily enjoy your chocolate bar while losing weight as long as you're tracking the syns in the bar.
Mars bars have varying syns according to the size that you choose, on average, you can expect a 33g bar to have around 7.5 syns.
We've discussed in more detail below how many Mars bars you can have on the plan, some syn values of them and some low syn alternative chocolate bars for when you feel like something sweet.
How Many Mars Bars Can I Eat On The Slimming World Plan?
At 7.5 syns for a 33g bar, you could have up to two Mars bars on the slimming world plan before using all your 15 daily syns, making them high in syns.
Mars bars get their high syn value from the high fat and sugar content like most other chocolate bars, for example, a 39.4g mars bar has 24g of sugar (nearly your whole recommended daily intake) and 6.6 of fat per bar.
We do suggest having these chocolate bars in moderation because of their high syn value or opting for their snack-sized bars which are lower in syns.
