I just bought a packet of fun size Light Mars Bars and they now say 50% less fat, then is smaller print - than the average of leading chocolate bar brands. No they haven't made them any less fatty, it just looked that way. We really need to be on the ball when shopping and read all the fine print on the labels. I also bought a 50g bag of a new variety of Smiths crisps. On the bag it told me now with less saturated fat. I just thought for a treat I would try them and after eating two or three (very yummy) I checked the points value. FIVE points for a 50gram bag. How unfair! Even though they were delish I felt it was a complete waste of so many points and couldn't bring myself to eat any more. Surely someone can make some tasty chips with much less fat than that?!! Anyway, back to my popcorn for me. Can't afford to stack the weight back on just for the sake of a bag of chips.
