Those watching what they eat will soon be treated to a new Slimming World product – syn-free oven chips, launching as part of the company’s branded meal range at Iceland.

The hotly anticipated Chunky Chips have half the calories of McCain’s, and – since they are ‘syn-free’ – they can be enjoyed guilt-free.

A healthy chip?

The Slimming World Chunky Chips are due to hit Iceland’s shelves on Monday 21 January, and are the first ever frozen chips to hit UK supermarkets that are not fried before freezing.

Instead of being cooked in oil and fried before freezing, the syn free chips are grilled first.

The chips take around 20 minutes to cook from frozen, saving healthy eaters the laborious task of peeling and oven cooking potatoes from fresh.

What are syns?

Syns represent the calories contained in different foods, with each item allocated a certain number of syns depending on how healthy it is. Many low calorie foods (such as vegetables, eggs and grains) are syn-free, meaning there is no restriction on how many of them can be eaten.

Those following Slimming World’s healthy eating plan are allowed to consume a maximum of 15 syns per day.

A popular recipe

The chip recipe has been a favourite within the Slimming World community for some time, so many are excited for Iceland’s quick and easy version.

The bargain supermarket recommends dishing them up with a lean steak and a side of green beans or peas, for a speedy 20 minute meal.

Slimming World’s Peppercorn Sauce is also sold in stores to add an extra kick.

When can I buy them?

The chips will land on shelves at Iceland on Monday 21 January, and will be available for a limited time only.

A 1kg gram bag is priced at £2.25.

The supermarket also sells a number of other items from the Slimming World range, including new carrot cake and doughnut Müller Light yoghurts.
