    Deep fried mars bars aren’t bad for you after all, say experts!

    Post by Eddie on Mon Apr 20 2015, 13:05

    Warnings that the legendary Scottish delicacy, the deep fried mars bar, was unhealthy were based on flawed evidence and should not have been issued, scientists have said.

    An article in the BMJ’s Open Heart journal asserts that advice adopted by authorities in the 1980s was politically motivated and was aimed at stamping out ethnic foods at a time when Scottish nationalism was on the rise.The article, written by a team headed by Zoe Harcombe of the University of the West of Scotland, claims that the sight a few chubby jocks waddling out of a chippie chomping down their favourite dessert was no more proof that deep fried mars bars were bad for you than concluding that excessive consumption of alcohol must be to blame for the average Glaswegian’s pavement painting of a Saturday evening.

    According to the team, there was a concerted attempt by the Thatcher Government to thwart the rise of the SNP by alienating wholesome Scottish foods such as breakfast favourite, deep fried Sugar Puffs, and high tea fancy, the battered Tunnocks Tea Cake, and replacing them with bland English substitutes like dusty muesli and the dreaded custard cream biscuit.

    “My nan had one every day and she lived to the grand age of 39″


    Whilst the article concludes that the mars bar, deep fried in lard, is perfectly healthy, it does suggest that eating the bar with anything other than Scottish double cream is bound to be harmful in the long run.
