Are Nobbly Bobbly Ice Lollies High In Syns?

Nobbly Bobbly ice lollies are a childhood favourite for many of us and are a great sweet treat, best of all, you can eat them while losing weight too by accounting for their syns on the slimming world plan.

Nobbly Bobbly ice lollies have 10.5 syns per lolly making them very high in syns, therefore should only be eaten occasionally when you have enough room in your syn allowance.

Down below we've put together a short guide which will briefly go over why Nobbly Bobbly ice lollies are high in syns, the syn values of some other ice lollies as well as our own slimming world ice lolly recipe when you want to save some syns!

Why Are Nobbly Bobbly Lollies So High In Syns?

You might be surprised to learn that Nobbly Bobbly lollies are so high in syns, but this is due to the ice cream inside which is high in calories, sugar and fat, unlike ice lollies which are typically made with just frozen fruit and sugar.

These ice lollies also have a mix of strawberry and chocolate ice cream rather than one flavour which increases the calories. At 10.5 syns, you would only be able to eat one of these lollies per day before going over your 15 syn a day allowance.

  1. First of all mash your frozen fruit up then put it in each lolly mould you have.
  2. Mix your squash and sparkling water then pour into the moulds and place your sticks inside.
  3. Freeze for at least 4 hours before eating.

Final Words

Overall, Nobbly Bobbly ice lollies are very high in syns due to the fact they are made with ice cream inside rather than just fruits, this increases the fat and sugar content due to the cream and therefore increase the syns. We recommend having these ice lollies as a treat occasionally if you save your syns.

If you want to save even more syns why not try making your ice cream or ice lollies with our recipes above, this would save you nearly 9 syns rather than having a Nobbly Bobby!
