If you are a sweet lover but still want to lose weight, you might be wondering if you can have rainbow drops on the slimming world plan or are they too high in syns?
Rainbow drops have 2 syns for a 10g pack and 5.5 syns for a 32g pack making them low in syns, but since they are high in sugar they should still be consumed within moderation.
We've put together a short guide below which will take you through how many Rainbow drops you can have on slimming world, syn values of rainbow drops and Swizzels sweets and some low syn alternatives to rainbow drops.
How Many Rainbow Drops Can I Eat On Slimming World?
At 2 syns for 10g pack, you could have up to seven packs before using all of your daily syn allowance or three 32g packs which are 5.5 syns.
Rainbow drops can be easy to overeat due to their small size, so we recommend having them in moderation or in small packs to stop yourself from overeating them. These sweets also have 13g of sugar for a 32g serving which is very high.
