    Because deep fried "ICE CREAM" (in batter) is better?

    Where I live the local chip shops sell them and they are quite popular.
    Personally I think they are disgusting.

    I haven't got a clue what a ''deep fried Mars Bar'' is, do you mean like you fry it in a pan?? :confused:

    It's not literally just the chocolate bar fried in a pan, it's coated in cakey batter first. I've never tried one but I'd love to. Anyway if you think that's bad y'all need to check out this list:

    Chippy down the road used to do them, kept meaning to try one but then it closed
    Same happened with one near me. It's clearly only the dodgy ones that are doing them

    I simply do not see any reason why someone would wanna eat that especially in this modern health conscious day so someone enlighten me :s

    Would you be repulsed by the idea of eating fish and chips and then having a mars bar for dessert? Probably not; yet if anything, that's even more unhealthy.

    They're actually good. Made them when i have one of those down days. Then i'd probably be disgusted by myself. But they do taste good.

    If you make them yourself with a clear and fresh oil, and some basic batter, you're basically just eating a mars bar in terms of 'Oh Em Gee so unhealthy'. And people eat them all the time, so anyone saying they don't get why people eat something so unhealthy should probably go on a field trip to McDonalds and wake up a bit.


    They're a sensation more than anything. The mars bar melts, meaning you eat the equivalent of melted chocolate wrapped in a crunchy shell. With ice cream or something it creates a perfect blend of heated crunch, buttery rich texture and a light fluffy after taste. I can see why so many people like them, personally they're a bit rich for me and I prefer deep fried ice cream.


    If you're not going to try it out of some sort of principle, I feel kind of sorry for you because that's got to be a pretty boring existence. I used to be a pretty fussy eater when I was younger, but once I started tasting crazy things on my travels I've realised you should just say meh and take a bite.

    Because they taste like warm, savory, chocolaty cakes. I used to eat them everyday for months as I live near a chip shop. I've yet to die, and if I do so as a result of said Mars Bars, I will have died with my **** jammed in the eye-socket of life.
    I'd rather die with my eye cocked in the jam-socket of life.

    I wouldn't eat one because I only like chocolate when it comes straight from the fridge. But each to their own

    Our chippy still does them, and sells them for £3. For a standard mars bar, some batter and oil. Pplfftt no way.

    I heard that in America you can get a stick of butter deep fat fried. Bleurgh.

    The idea of them sounds disgusting, but you don't know unless you try them! I fell in love with them because I've got such a sweet tooth, but I only treat myself to 1 or 2 a year!

    Our chippy does it, but doesn't have them on the menu. If you bring in your Mars they'll charge you 20p for the batter and the frying and then do it for you.
    Girl behind the counter said they have them on the menu everywhere else because they're 'dirty chippys', but not they're not (even though they still do it).

    I had it once when I was about 14, it was nice but I felt like I'd put on 3 stone after eating it. They are 50p in my local chippy
