I live just outside of Glasgow and want to know, what does a deep fried mars bar taste like.... not one person who I know or have ever talked to knows what a deep fried mars bar is let alone tastes like ?
Was this something the English talked about in the 80's or .................. ?

I have had 1 in my life. The chip shop nr my school used to sell them(myth they invented them). They are exactly as u imagine. Messy, sweet and u can just about rely on it to triple your calorie intake for the day.
The shop was in Scotland

I tried one once. It was quite nice actually but a bit too rich to make a habbit of eating them.

Had one about 10 years ago, levels of intoxication I am sure made it taste better than it was, hot, sticky and very sweet, lots of fat and sugar.
I had seen them advertised in quite a few chippies and thought I had to give it a go, I remember they offered to deep fry anything else if I felt the urge !! Maybe I should have tried a Topic.
I also have to say this was in Scotland and there seemed to be a bit of shameful pride in this local delicacy.
I also remember when microwaves came out and were putting in all sorts of confectionery but many burn't mouths seemed to put an end to that.

not one person who I know or have ever talked to knows what a deep fried mars bar is
I would have though they could hazard a guess
Son No1 lives in Aberdeen and numeous fish & chip outlets near him sell them - I did read somewhere that they were more common in the University areas presumably as it is assumed students will eat anything
A chipper (the Carron i think) in Stonehaven, just north of Montrose and about the same distance south of Aberdeen claims to be the birthplace of the deep fried Mars Bar.
When i was back in the UK, living in Stonehaven as it happened, my visiting American stepson, then variously 11 to 13 years old, loved them.
Apparently there's a secret to the successful preparation of a deep fried Mars Bar - take the wrapper off first.
Oops, double postops:
Lol, indeed. I said that all wrong. What I meant to say was no one I knew had ever tried one. (maybe late on and tired at time of writing?)
I wouldn't fancy eating one as it would be gooey and sticky and oily... meh :(
I thought that until I tried one. It wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be.
If you put them in the deep freeze (or at least the fridge) for a few hours before you dip them in batter and fry them they don't go all gooey.
Deep fried pies were an experience not often repeated when I first moved to Aberfreeze in 1990, don't even get me started on deep fried pizza....
