Mars says to stop deep-frying their otherwise healthy candy bars9/5/2012
Mars Incorporated, the company that turns a profit through chocolate-covered nougat, has publicly distanced itself from the trendy confection known as the deep-fried Mars bar. In a statement directed to Scotland's Carron Fish Bar — which reportedly invented the batter-dipped version — Mars says they neither endorse nor authorize that particular menu item because (here's where our brains almost exploded) it "[goes] against our commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles." Right, because a 260-calorie candy bar filled with 31% of your daily sugar needs is as healthy as a handful of carrots. Unless "nougat" is secretly made from the tears of Olympians, we're calling B.S. (And then ordering another deep-fried Mars bar). [Source]
