You know what annoys me? When people - often non-Scottish ones - ask me if I have ever had a deep-fried Mars bars. The way that this myth - yes, MYTH - has spread around the world, you would think that the Scottish people eat one every day and that every local chippy has it on their menu.
The answer is no: I have never had a deep-fried Mars bar nor have I ever seen a single person eat one and nor have I ever seen it on a menu.
People, listen up: the deep-fried Mars bar is mostly an urban legend. The fact is, if you take any sort of food into a chippy shop and ask them to deep-fry it for you, they will.
No doubt that at some point in recent years desperate Scots, looking for some extra grease, have ordered a deep-fried Mars bar but honestly, I don't know a single Scottish person who eats them. The only people that you find asking for a deep-fried Mars bar are tourists, who seem to think that it's a Scottish dietary staple.
Now, if you ask for a deep-fried pizza or sausage supper, that's more authentic!
