Deep-fried Mars Bar a Reality

About this time last year, Bloopy told me about traveling through Scotland and coming across what he thought was one of the strangest foods ever: a Mars candy bar, battered and deep-fried.

I was always skeptical about it, figuring it was the culinary equivalent of the Jackalope. But apparently it’s for real, as this article shows.

  1. why you gotsta be all doubtinatin’ me and shit?. . . and for the record, i didn’t think it was one of the strangest foods ever, i thought it was one of the *tastiest* foods ever. . . i mean i put that shit on par with the best french desserts i’ve had while goofing off in paris. . .

  2. I encountered one on a side street in Edinburgh, and I have to say the reality is raelly not quite as crazy as you’d expect from the phrase “deep fried Mars bar.” Imagine a doughnut or batter fritter with a gooey chocolate and nut filling — that’s pretty much what it is.

  3. The only thing I’m surprised about is that the deep-fried Mars Bar was found in Scotland and not America, considering we deep fry everything from ice cream to turkey.
