A Starbar has a little bit of coloured history, being launched and relabelled, being confused with a Boost, and having an unexplained space theme. All we can say is that whenever we think of a Starbar we remember how thick and chewy it is and a feeling of fullness afterwards.
A Starbar has a peanut center, which is then wrapped by caramel and then covered in milk chocolate. It doesn’t have a crunch but it is very chewy. If you’ve got a penchant for a Starbar but wanted to know how many syns they’re worth (possibly after you’ve eaten it?) then this is the right place.
On top of the syn values, you’ll also get the run down of its nearest competitors and information on whether or not a Starbar is a good choice to use your well earned syns on. Let’s get on with it.
Starbar syn values
A Starbar weighs 49 grams and contains 249 calories. This means a Starbar is worth 12.5 syns with a ratio of 0.25 syns per gram. This puts it near to a Twix, Double Decker, Boost and a Yorkie.
12.5 syns per bar is on the heavy side with plenty of other chocolate bars worth a lot less. But, is a Starbar gram for gram worth it? Read on to find out.
Is a Starbar worth the Syns?
A Starbar is particularly high in saturated fats, from the nuts and the caramel. But it is not so much that it is unhealthy when compared to other chocolate bars. They’re syns for a reason. But, from a syns perspective there are better.
At 0.25 syns per gram, it is not brilliant but not the worst. About the same as a Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut, Twix and a KitKat. Nothing special.
Its SynScore is 61% which is just above average but gives you plenty more options of better ones such as the ones we’ve mentioned. But, with its unique flavour if it’s what you like then go for it. At the end of the day the syns are there for a treat.
