    Gives this Scotsman a warm feeling inside.

    Could be the Whisky right enough.

    My mother was from Glasgow, and I laughed by pink bits off looking at the “25 Reasons we love Scotland”; I was dissapointed there was no deep fried Mars Bars included? Is this because the eaters of this Scottish delicacy have all died from cardiac arrest?

    To be honest, I lived in Scotland for 22 years and never saw a single deep fried Mars bar for sale anywhere.

    I like how the pony on the right did not bother brushing the hair out of its face for the photo.

    You can buy deep fried mars bars in Edinburgh however, generally, the only people I’ve ever seen buy them are tourists…

    Deep fried mars bars are very real – not a stunt by the sun or anyone else. Readily available at many chippies and also at a number of actual restaurants including the beech tree inn at dumgoyne where it’s served as a proper desert with a side of sorbet ;)

    They sell deep fried mars bars in the clam shell chippy on the royal mile in Edinburgh

    There are two chippies in the quaint traditional village of Boghall. One is sodden in grease and the other is run by the Taliban. However its great being Scottish!

    My partner and I went to stay in Scotland last May and came home after only 2 days because of the constant heavy rain. Even so, the sights were amazing, and as my youngest son lives up in Sterling with his Scottish wife and beautiful daughter, we shall be visiting again. It’s among the most beautiful parts of the U.K. giving us at least a few things that we can still be proud of.

    Note on No 21! I love the Scottish maths because paying an annual subscription by Dd over 9 months and getting given an extra 6 is exactly accurate!,

    I love the 25 reasons why we love Scotland, It made me laugh aloud. One of my Rock Idols was born in Scotland but is now in Australia, the One, the Only….Angus Young. Also I agree on Frankie Boyles comment about the English, us Welsh would do the same because we always beat them at rugby.

    This is pure class. Fife has deep fried mars bars but not tried it yet. My 24 yr old nephew says it was braw.

    Brilliant, us Scots are fab! As for deep fried mars bars, it was invented in my home town, Stonehaven, 15 miles south of Aberdeen, you can get them there no bother at all. Have to say, I never tried one myself, I preferred a white pudding supper!

    The chippy opposite the Conan Doyle pub at the top of Leith Walk in Edinburgh has a big sign advertising fried Mars bars – I tried one as a scientific experiment: it was pretty good but not something you would want to eat every day. Most of the chippies will deep fry any kind of chocolate you want – creme eggs are apparently a particular delicacy in Perth. In Glasgow I was offered a deep fried beef roll – I am still not sure if I was being wound up!

    yea the deep fried mars bar was first created in Stonehaven , where I’m from. Its one of them sweet-savoury mixtures that shouldn’t taste good but does! Its not easy to finish though because it gets sickly sweet quite quickly. Well worth a try anyway if your ever in Stoney :)

    Forget Deep Fried Mars Bars.

    It’s the deep fried battered pizza suppers that I miss!
