Poundshop.com Slimming Friendly Shopping Haul

*This is a collaborative post with poundshop.com. They provided me with a voucher to use on their site. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own*

It's no secret that I love a bargain, and love food! Whether it's meal planning, meal prepping, or creating budget friendly dishes, I always try and save time and money where I can. 


I love going out and visiting budget shops and getting loads of cupboard food and kitchen gadgets. The only issue is that I am usually visiting on foot, and buy way more stuff than my arms can manage to carry home!

Poundshop.com got in touch with me and challenged me to do a slimming friendly shopping haul in their online store! They stock a lot of products that are low sugar and calories, that can be used alongside the Slimming World and Weight Watchers plans.

Better still, I can sit and browse the whole online store from the comfort of my sofa, instead of having to venture out the house. They offer next day delivery too!

I wanted to see all the low cost things I could get for under £50 that are slimming friendly, or at least help with a healthy lifestyle. 

There were so many options to choose from, and I wasn't just restricted to food. There were a few handy kitchen items that I couldn't resist getting!

Slimming Friendly Foods



Beanies Cookie Dough Coffee 50g £2 Fancy coffees from high street coffee stores may be delicious, but they are definitely not slimming friendly as standard! 

Beanies are a popular brand amongst slimmers, as their coffee flavours are only 2 calories per cup, making them syn free. There are loads of flavours to choose from, 


These sauces have also been super popular amongst slimmers as they are crazy low in syns. Crucials Yoghurt & Mint Dressing 500m £1, works out at 3 syns pr tablespoon. Great to go with a kebab! 

Crucials Smoky BBQ Sauce 500ml £1 is only 0.5 syns per tablespoon, which is great for a BBQ sauce. Perfect for when you can't be bothered to make your own!

Crucials Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce 500ml £1 is only 0.5 syns per tablespoon, so it's another great low syn addition to have in the food cupboard. 


Mug Shot Snack Stop Cheese 60g £1 are only 3 syns per packet, and are super easy to make and have in a rush.

Cirio Tomato Puree 140g £1 and the Napolina Chopped Tomatoes 390g £3 are super useful to have in the cupboard as they go so well in loads of sauces, and are the base of loads of different healthy dinners.

Some of my favourite chopped tomato based healthy dishes




Harry Ramsden's Chinese Style Curry Sauce 48g £1 is 169 calories for the whole pack, so around 4.5 syns per portion.

Golden Wonder Cup Soup Tomato 3 Pack £1, another quick and easy warm snack, and for only 5 syns.



These Pepsi Max 330ml are 3 for £1, and are a great syn free drink to keep in the fridge.

Burton's Fish N Chips Salt & Vinegar Snacks 5 Pack £1 are only 124 calories per bag, which is roughly 6 syns per packet. 

My favourite brand of beans has to be these Branston Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce 410g x3 for £2. I feel like the sauce is thicker and richer than other brands. These are 3 tins for £1!

Amoy Thick Noodle 300g £1 are perfect for any stir fry or Chinese themed food. 2 syns for the whole pouch.


All slimmers will know of these bars, Alpen Chocolate & Caramel Cereal Bars 5 x 95g £1 and

Pink & White Marshmallows 250g £1 are only 1 syn each, so are a super sweet and low syn snack. They are also delicious in a coffee, so are a good match with the Beanies coffee! Fizzy Bananas 180g £1 come in a 180g box, and work out approximately 2 syns for a 20g portion.
