Deep-Fried Mars Bars? Try Deep-Frying Cornish Pasties!
This is quite an old news item, but only just brought to my attention by a Canadian reader, who also tells me the CBC ran a poll on the issue.
Mars is NOT happy!
The chocolate company claims in its letter that deep frying the Mars bar, which recently had its saturated fat level cut, is “not in line” with the company’s marketing code aimed at promoting a “healthy active lifestyle”. http://www.scotsman.com/news/odd/deep-fried-mars-bar-creators-hit-with-letter-from-chocolate-bar-s-lawyers-1-2506861

This is downright weird!
When I was a house-husband, many years ago, the highlight of the week was ‘Dad’s Deep-Fried Cornish Pasties,” a yummy delight for my off-spring, about which boasts were made to little pals, who were impressed and envious, and to Mum, when she got home from work, who was neither.
But it was only once a week, and on other days there was infinitely more nutritious fare, like those large plastic bags full of small coconut chocolate-covered things, called Bounty Bars…
The result, to certain people’s astonishment, was neither obesity nor pimples, but perfectly normal, and very happy, humanity.
But no longer is my specialty sought after – wait till the grandchildren come along!!
