How do you eat a flake? Do you put it in a 99 or do you eat it like a chocolate bar? Because of it’s cylindrical shape, a Flake is a rather versatile chocolate which can be enjoyed easily in a variety of ways. It’s a pure milk chocolate flake with ridges and swirls alongside giving it a fairly unique look.
Considering its small and quick to eat how does it fair in terms of syn values? Is it worth the syns or should you look for something else to satisfy your sweet tooth? Let’s find out.
Cadbury Flake Syn Values
A flake weighs 32 grams and contains 168 calories. This means a single Flake is worth 8.4 syns. 8.4 syns is relatively low, due in part to the low amount it weighs. It is similar in syn values to a Galaxy Ripple (8.7), Crunchie (9.3) and a Daim (7.5).
But, is the Flake worth the syns and if it weighed the same as every other chocolate bar where it would it stand? Read on to find out.
Is a Flake worth the syns?
A flake isn’t a healthy treat, we all know that. But it is certainly not the worst and its redeeming quality really is its low weight leading to low syns per bar.
The Flake is pure milk chocolate so the calories are going to be high.
Looking at 8.4 syns each and a weight of 32 grams, a Flake is 0.26 syns per gram which is on the heavy side in the same ballpark as a Freddo, Toffee Crisp and a Snickers. 0.26 isn’t terrible but there are better chocolates out there.
Lastly, the SynScore. This is the score that shows if all chocolate bars weighed the same, which would be lowest in syns. The Flake’s syn score is 45%, this mean it is 45% efficient when compared to the most efficient chocolate bar. This is not a good score and you could be getting more bang for your buck elsewhere.
Short and sweet. Literally. This is a non-complicated chocolate bar.
