Nestle’s Lion bar is rough and ready chocolate bar with an imposing exterior and an rough, chewy and filling interior with caramel, wafer and cereals topped by milk chocolate. I love a Lion because it feels substantial and that I get more bang for my buck when I have one. How do you feel about a Lion? Is it your fave?
Regardless, you’re here because you need the syn values and we have those and lots more. Let’s get into whether or not a Lion is worth your syns today.
Lion Bar Syn Values
A Lion bar weighs 42 grams and contains 203 calories. This means that a single Lion Bar is worth 10.2 syns each with a ratio of 0.24 syns per gram of weight. The single syn value puts it in the same territory as a Wispa (10), KitKat Chunky (10.2).
For the full breakdown on whether or not it’s worth it read on.
Are Lion Bars worth the syns
We always start by saying if a Lion is your favourite then it doesn’t matter if its worth it. However, here is an analysis looking at the cold hard facts.
At 0.24 syns per gram, the Lion bar is closer to the top than the bottom of the chocolate list. It is comparable to a Picnic or a Bounty. This means that per gram of weight the syn value is pretty low (so you get more choc for your troubles.)
In terms of the SimpleSyns exclusive SynScore, a Lion bar scores 81% which is very good. This means it is 81% as good as the best chocolate on a syns per gram basis. At 81% it is better than the Bounty (77%) and just under the Picnic (84%).
Lastly, we know chocolate bars aren’t healthy, hence why they have a syn score to begin with, but the Lion is a decent use of those syns.
