McVitie’s Club is a small, crunchy and chocolate covered biscuit either in Mint or Orange flavour. A dead simple treat which is great for dunking, putting in lunchboxes or just as a cheeky treat. Both an orange club and a mint club weigh the same and contain the same calories so their syn value is identical regardless of which you choose.
But, are they a light and simple treat or are they a complete waste of your syn allowance, let’s find out.
Mint and Orange Club Syn Values
Both flavours of club biscuits weigh 22 grams and contain 116 calories, each. This means that each Mint or Orange Club biscuit is worth 5.8 syns and has a syn per gram ratio of 0.26. Neither of these values are particularly good and rank poorly for both in our Biscuit syn value list. Clubs are similar to Rocky and Penguin.
How many syns are in a pack of Club biscuits?
There are 8 in a pack which adds up to 46.4 syns.
Are club biscuits worth the syns?
As far as biscuit bars are concerned, Clubs are on par with their peers but do not compete with the traditional biscuits in terms of being low in syns and low in syns per gram.
That being said, Club is distinct in that it offers a different flavour to just biscuit or chocolate. There aren’t many orange/mint flavour biscuits out there – if you want a tasty biscuit and have the syns to spare then why not?
