She canna take na more, Cap'n!

I've never tried one myself, but you have to admire the Scots - take a Mars bar, cover it in batter then deep fry it!  A source of amusement and weight gain for two decades, it seems.

So the story recently published that Mars, the big chocolate company, have asked the takeaway in question to add a disclaimer to their menu, as Mars don't want to be associated with 'unhealthy' foods, struck me as a little 'pot calling the kettle black'.

What fascinates me is that this large, multinational corporation think that if they repeat something often enough, the gullible public will believe it, much in the same way as the Nazi propaganda machine operated.  It doesn't matter if it's true or not - just keep repeating it.

Take a look at the story here, and wonder to yourself - which part of a Mars bar is 'healthy'?
