Does this picture make you salivate uncontrollably? If so, chances
are that you're dying to sink your teeth into a deep-fried Mars Bar.
Unfortunately, even the makers of Mars Bars wouldn't recommend you try it because
chances are, eating one too many of this would probably kill you.
According to BBC, the chocolate manufacturing giant Mars has distanced itself from the famous deep-fried Mars bar by seeking a disclaimer for Carron Fish Bar's which claims to have invented the recipe nearly 20 years ago. It's such a hot item on the menu that the bar estimates that it sells between 100-150 deep-fried Mars bars a week.
In light of this, Mars Inc. decided to issue a letter to the Scottish fish and chips shop that claims to have invented the delicacy, asking for health disclaimers on menus and stating that deep-frying the bar is not "authorized or endorsed." To further clarify its stance, the company decided to release the following statement:
"We are really flattered that customers of Carron Fish Bar like our product so much that it has now become a flagship product for the store. No application for a protected geographical indication has been filed to date. Should an application be filed, unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to support it as deep-frying one of our products would go against our commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
