For those fluent in Slimming World lingo, ‘chips’ and ‘syn-free’ don’t tend to go hand in hand, unfortunately. However, if you kicked started your ‘healthy new you’ 2019 by saying goodbye to comfort food, you may be able to bend your resolutions and not compromise on your diet plan. Fries-fanatics, we have good news: you can now indulge in chips without getting a slap on the wrist by your Slimming World consultant - hooray! But don’t rush to McDonalds - you’ll actually need to head to Iceland for your fix….
Chunky chips for your next homemade 'takeaway' - yes please!
The budget supermarket is releasing chunky chips using the famous Slimming World recipe to make sure you can keep on plan but still enjoy your old favourite dishes. They are the only frozen chips on the market that aren’t fried before freezing - instead, they’re grilled beforehand, and just need to be whacked in the oven. Which sounds perfect for weeknight suppers… or after those nights out where you’ve managed to skip the kebab shop (pat on the back!) but are still after something to have with (reduced sugar) ketchup. Although we can’t promise that loading them up with cheese and gravy keeps them syn-free, unfortunately.
Slimming World suggests serving them with lean steak and drizzled with their peppercorn sauce (erm, yum!), which sounds like a real crowd-pleaser. The oven chips launch on the 21st January and will cost £2.25 for 1kg bag.

Sadly, there is a catch - the chips are only available for a limited time, but as they’re frozen, we see no harm in stocking up as much as possible. Because when the weather is /this/ chilly, we can’t help but skip on our kale salads in favour of some heartier dishes - now can they answer our prayers and make some guilt-free apple crumble? Please?
