The chocolate digestive is the king of biscuits if you ask me. They’ve taken everything that makes the digestive so good and then smothered it in delicious milk chocolate. Not the healthiest treat but perfect for both having with a brew, to have on a plate for guests and to just have as a quick snack.
For reference, we are discussing a milk chocolate digestive.
Here we explain how many syns there are each, how many are in a pack and what other biscuits are similar in range.
Chocolate digestive syn values
A chocolate digestive typically weighs 17 grams and contains 85 calories. This means a single chocolate digestive is worth 4.3 syns and has a ratio of 0.25 syns per gram. When compared to a non-chocolate digestive it is 1.8 syns more.
The syns per biscuit puts in the same area as a Jammie Dodger, the syns per gram is about the same as a Lotus Biscoff, Nice and a Choccy Hobnob.
Are chocolate digestives worth the syns?
If you’re looking for a tasty treat and have syns to burn then a chocolate digestive is a cracking choice. From a syns point of view there are better biscuits worth fewer syns per biscuit and there are also biscuits with a better syns per gram ration.
However, from a nutritional point of view they are dreadful with high amounts of fat, sat fats, sugars and carbs.
