    • Ha Ha! What a great headline that would be. But for readers who do not know – this trend of deep-frying Mars (chocolate) Bars coated in a flour-egg batter mix, usually reserved for white fish, started in 1995 in North-east Scotland. It was labelled as one of Britain’s unhealthiest foods and therefore caught on! This label is from Mike’s Fish & Chip shop in Queensway, Southampton, who has an excellent reputation for his cuisine – it is not too far from the cruise terminals if any readers visit.

  1. The Mars bar in batter recalls state fair food here. They deep fry everything they can get their hands on. I’ll have a funnel cake from time to time, but that’s about the extent of it for me. I wondered about those waking nights, too. Thanks for the explanation. It’s 4:39 a.m. here, and I’m wide away – wish I could go back to sleep, but it seems that isn’t going to happen, so I could be a waking-night-person for someone — at least, now.

  3. I did quite a bit of searching before I noticed your addendum – I couldn’t spot it. I tend to write fast so I make quite a few grammatical errors – my husband is a pedant – we can’t watch news on the TV without him spellchecking everything written on it and shouting at the box!
