A Ferrero Rocher is luxury treat in the chocolate world, a rough ball filled with hazelnut cream which crunches before dripping into your mouth with an explosion of creamy flavour. Some people might get them regularly, others on special occasions such as Christmas.
Does luxury come at a price? How many syns is it going to cost you for even a single Ferrero Rocher? And is there anything better out there? Let’s find out.
Ferrero Rocher Syn Values
A single Ferrero Rocher weighs 12.5 grams and contains 72 calories. This means eating a single Ferrero Rocher will cost 3.6 syns, each. A small amount meaning you could have 3-4 and be within the allowance. This is a little bit more than eating a Freddo (4.8).
A small amount but this is only a part of the picture, our detailed analysis below will you tell you how many syns per gram a Ferrero Rocher has and what its SynScore is when compared against all chocolate bars. Read on to find out more.
Are Ferrero Rochers worth the syns?
If you have the syns to burn and Ferrero Rochers are your absolute faves then have them! Syns are there for a reason and 1 syn is 20 calories no matter what the food is. However, for those looking to stretch their syns out as much as possible and get the most amount of food with the least amount of syns then a Ferrero Rocher is abysmal. Here’s why
At 0.29 syns per gram, only Lindor balls are worse (0.31) and is just a little bit better than the big brother Kinder Bueno (0.28 – use the same ingredients). Syns per gram indicates how calorie dense an item is and the Rocher is very dense indeed.
Lastly, is the SynScore which compares all chocolates as if they weighed the same as each other. The Ferrero Rocher scores 3%, again only a Lindor is worse. This means that although they are only 3.6 syns each, you could get a lot more chocolate for that amount from looking at our league table.
