they look nice, but no doubt a billion calories and sickening

Kitty81 Sun 21-Nov-10 22:57:35

Do it. They have to be tasted to be believed. They are, however, the most sickly substance on earth and you won't need another one for about a decade

Ask for a Mars Bar supper. grin

I had one once. I was disappointed. What you should do is melt a marsbar and stir in marshmallows then spoon the warm mixture into your mouth. Maarshmallows are fat free so its ok wink.

Can any Glaswegian MNers confirm the existence of the 'stonner?'- saw it in a chippie there about ten years ago and nobody down here believes me. It was a battered sausage wrapped in doner kebab meat then dipped in batter again and deep fried. Again.

I didn't have one. I was too taken with the chips in batter.

I didn't know that I was hungry until I read this thread. Yummy!!

My arteries furred up just reading that tether.

I had one once.

Saw it on the menu, had 60 odd pence in my pocket, asked him to add it to my order - thought 'what the hell' as I was curious.

Was lovely.

In Shetland over the summer, we were in a chippy in Lerwick which served battered and deep fried pizza.

And battered "seafood" sticks too. <boak>

You can also get deep fried Snickers suppers in 'select' chippies. grin

I can't say that I've ever heard of a stonner,Tether. I'm sure it exists somewhere but to the best of my knowledge it's not a regular menu item here.

PurplePillow Sun 21-Nov-10 23:14:37

In my local chip shop they will batter and fry any chocolate bar you ask for hmm

Never tried it and really don't want to grin

There's a fish and chip shop near us with deep fried mars bar as number 1 on their kids menu. I've never had one but wouldn't mind trying one, one day, when I'm feeling brave!

MrsShrekTheThird Sun 21-Nov-10 23:15:26

niiiice. <yuk>

<<goes to puke>>

LetThereBeRock Sun 21-Nov-10 23:16:04

I'm not familiar with chips in batter either. That sounds hideous,admittedly I don't tend to frequent chip shops all that often.

AuntiePickleBottom Sun 21-Nov-10 23:17:11

mrsshrekthethird...don't knock it until you tried it

backwardpossom Sun 21-Nov-10 23:17:54

A "stonner" has a completely different meaning to me!!! blush

I had a deep fried, battered pizza supper for my dinner last night. Bloody fantastic it was, but I could practically hear my arteries screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo"!

tethersend Sun 21-Nov-10 23:21:01

They were more potato fritters really... divine, although a little bit deadly.

I remember there being a sign in the chippie saying 'only one stonner supper per customer per week'. Which must mean that there were some people who wanted one more than once a week. Which is almost impressive.

Can't get your links to work, auntie...

tethersend Sun 21-Nov-10 23:21:50

I think that inspired its name, backward wink

AuntiePickleBottom Sun 21-Nov-10 23:23:41

sorry i am not that good at links...i'll try once more

That's disgusting.

BonniePrinceBilly Sun 21-Nov-10 23:28:04

I've had a deep fried mars bar on bondi beach. I though it would be revolting but it was actually fecking lovely!

Bellagio Sun 21-Nov-10 23:29:02

Tethersend- psml at the Stonner and the battered chips!
Backwardspossom - lol yes the name means that to me too!

I have never had a deep fried mars but bet it would be great with ice cream, nom nom.

As far as I know, a deep fried battered pizza is known as a "scrunchie"

I love and miss Scottish chippies, battered King Rib, White pudding and haggis suppers.......
Oh and no differentiation between varieties of fish, just "Fish"
Love it.
