The Kinder Bueno is a chocolate bar using the distinct flavour and ingredients famously made by Ferrero. The Bueno us a wafer filled with hazelnut creamed wrapped in milk chocolate with dark chocolate drizzle. It’s exceedingly sweet with a light crunch and cream which makes the flavour hit quickly.
It’s a small bar with small ridges so it can be consumed in a couple of bites or bit by bit. It’s not advertised as luxury but I’ve always seen it that way considering it tastes exactly like a Ferrero Rocher.
This article explores the Kinder Bueno’s syn values, its syns per gram ration and synscore where it is pitted against its competitors to see how efficient it is.
Kinder Bueno Syn Values
A Kinder Bueno weighs 43.5 grams and contains 244 calories. This means a single bar of Kinder Bueno is worth 12.2 syns, each. This is a very high amount and close to most people’s allowance. This is comparable to Dairy Milk (12) and a Snickers (12.3).
Now that this is out of the way, its time for the analysis – is a Kinder Bueno worth the syns? If all chocolate bars weighed the same how would it stack up? Let’s find out.
Is a Kinder Bueno worth the syns?
If your allowance allows for a Bueno and it’s your favourite then have it. Because 1 syn is 20 calories no matter what you eat. But, if you want “more” out of your syns then the Bueno is absolutely not the best, here’s why.
A Kinder Bueno’s syns per gram ratio is 0.28 which is the same as a Wispa and only slightly worse than a Ferrero Rocher. These are high numbers meaning these bars are calorie dense and what they are dense with is sugar.
Lastly, the SynScore is 6% with only two chocolate bars worse. This SynScore is calculated by scoring the bars from worst to best, with the % showing how much of the best this is. It is so crammed full of sugar that you aren’t getting much from your syns with this one.
