Last week a few bloggers

Last week a few bloggers wrote about deep-fried candy bars. I don’t remember which ones, and the search engines aren’t telling, but here’s a BBC article about the uproar caused when a Scottish chef put deep fried Mars bars on the menu in his restaurant in France. Apparently, the French food critics don’t care for that sort of thing. The article give a brief account of the food’s history, noting “The deep-fried Mars Bar is thought to have originated in Stonehaven, in the north-east of Scotland. Its existence may help account for the fact that parts of Scotland have the highest incidence of heart disease, cancer and strokes, the worst teeth and the lowest life expectancy in the developed world.” Leave it to the BBC to take a swipe at the Scots.
