    I used to think that the fried Mars Bar was a myth until I saw them on the menu in an Edinburgh chippie.

    One bite was enough, they are sickly sweet and cloying. Horrible.

    Especially if you try to say "deep-fried battered butter" in a geordie accent.

    Why? As if there isn't enough of a bad reputation for the Scots with the already coronary-inducing fare they offer already!

    Sounds an ideal dessert to follow your munchy box.

    It really amazes me the crap that some people will eat.

    Take my next door neighbours for example. Their diet seems to consist entirely of fry ups at lunch, takeaways at dinner and all washed down with copious amounts of fizzy drinks.

    And they smoke.

    I'm not being judgemental or anything, I like a fry up as much as the next guy, but you have to strike a balance.

    Apart from the fact that we're a gazillion miles away from any form of fast food, it just makes me physically sick at the thought. I'd rather cook at home tbh, and that's saying something, as I'm a shite cook

    Well, sober, the munchy box makes me feel sick. But pissed I'd be all over one. Bit like fat birds really...

    lets be honest deep fried mozzarella sticks are hardly health food, nor are scotch eggs for that matter. and i for one would eat the shit out of a bowl of deep fried mac & cheese (as i believe the americans call it). parmos too.

    a huge amount of of this is classism i reckon, go to macdonalds and you're a pikey chav with no self respect, but iif you go to the fat duck and have tripled fried chips you're a gourmet

    Ahhhh.......mac and cheese, the food of the gods, and it probably has a lot more fat per portion than deep fried butter.

    IDGAS though, I could eat the stuff by the truckload and then come back for seconds.

    It does say it's already popular in America, but to make the tenuous Mars bar link, news agencies had to wait until a chipper in Scotland was selling it.

    Since I've been gobbling Omeprazole, I really enjoy greasy food. Don't fancy the Iron Brew flavour though. I once bought Iron Brew crisps and everybody who tried one spat it out. I scattered them on the beach and the seagulls turned up their noses at them.
