What does a deep-fried Mars bar taste like?

Battered and deep fried Mars bar

The deep-fried Mars bar is a calorific treat invented by the Scots.  I'd heard lots about this novelty delicacy, so was très excited when I stumbled across a chippy Clam Shell on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh that served them.

So, what does it taste like?  Well, the batter was surprisingly crispy and light - similar to the casing on a warm McDonald's applie pie.   The first bite released a rich and warm chocolately goo - a combination of melted nougat and carmel filling, which contrasted perfectly with the savoury batter.  It was really tasty, and would make a really fun dessert but it was far too rich for me and I could only manage two bites before leaving the AB to finish it.   If I ever plan on serving a deep-fried Mars bar, I'd serve it with  some vanilla ice-cream.

I was really surprised by the deep-fried specialties available - anyone for deep fried pizza or kebab?  Well, yes I was. The AB talked me into eating a deep-fried pizza.  What was it like? Well, it was a very crispy, cheap margherita pizza, which much to the AB's disappointment fried without batter - I've since heard that there are batter versions available.  It was akin to eating an oily biscuit, I'd advise you steer well clear and stick to the chips and deep-fried sweets.
