How many syns are in a Toffee Crisp

Nestle’s Toffee Crisp is a combination of biscuit, cereal and caramel drenched in chocolate. It’s a rather tough chew with a rugged texture but a sweet flavour. They are on of the eldest chocolate bars in the UK with a good following but never one to dominate the market. Initially, the origins of the Toffee Crisp come from a cake recipe which was then adapted to become a bar.

This is why, perhaps, it is quite tough and rugged when compared to many other bars.

Here we discuss the syn values of the Toffee Crisp and how it stacks up against the competitor. Lastly, we discuss whether or not they’re worth the syns and what alternatives could be out there.

Now, the syns per gram of a Toffee Crisp is 0.26 which is quite high and comparable to a Flake, Galaxy Ripple, Boost and a Toblerone. 0.26 isn’t the worst but the top of the league is 0.22.

These scores are put into context with the SimpleSyns SynScore. Toffee Crisp scores a 48% which is quite poor and not an efficient way to spend syns, this is rather obvious from the dense sugar filled ingredients. A Lion bar is a much better alternative at 81%.
