Chinese Crackers...

With the most popular question in the last few weeks being 'how may points a chinese now?' 
here's the answer...

It's impossible to know exactly, even on ProPoints no one was 100% sure, different take aways vary in their cooking methods, what oils they use, portion sizes... there's just too many variables to be precise... Research has shown, a sweet and sour chicken dish, from two different take aways varied from 13 teaspoons of sugar in one to 31 teaspoons in the other... so it's guess work, it's sharing dishes, picking boiled rice over fried, choosing chow meins like before... make the rice yourself, control the bits you can and get what you really want for a main, I'm happy to get the wok out and make it at home but sometimes you just really WANT a chinese... so common sense... 

Heres the Smart Points of some of the prawn crackers out there...
