Deep-Fried Mars bars.....Yay or Nay??

Ask a Question

Has anyone tried a deep-fried Mars bar?

I haven't but I'd be tempted to if I knew where to get one! 🙈

I'm intrigued about how they taste!!

I really can't imagine that they are very appealing although I understand they are in certain areas of the country, but they certainly aren't to me. Scotland seems to be the place

Imnotcheap I had them in a Chinese restaurant for dessert. The batter was thin and crispy...not greasy at all.

Perhaps that's the reason. Thicker batter will hold more oil.

Yep! I've had them a few times actually, they are quite greasy but so nice as the chocolate is melted but still in a crisp batter

Again never tried one but I'd definitely give it a go. I once had deep fried ice cream which was a strange one.

Never tried it, but it doesn't sound very appetizing. I have never seen this on sale anywhere I think it's a Scottish thing ?

I got one from my local chip shop I am in north east England,it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but it is very sickly so I struggled to eat it all.

KatieRobertson I can imagine I would also struggle with a full size bar. Maybe they should make Mars bars bite size 😊

I like deep fried Mars Bars, other confectionery and pizzas, but they're not exactly healthy. An occasional treat.

ACR yes that I do agree with! I don't think I could manage them on a regular basis. The guilty conscience does kick in! 🙈

Firedragon what's your opinion on this Scottish treat? I know that you have a sweet tooth and are pretty much a chocolate addict!!
