Caramely Nougat Bar

Much like Snickers, the Mars bar was one of my go to chocolate of choice as a kid. Now that I am older I have rarely ever had these. When we moved back to India in 1987, I couldn’t find Mars anywhere. Once in a while a relative would come from abroad and gift us some assorted chocolates and inevitably, Mars would be among them.

I like the original version, which I understand is the British version which consists of caramel and nougat coated with milk chocolate. Now, Mars has been around here in India for a long time but for some reason I have bought a Mars bars very, very few times. Compared to my usual go to, which is Snickers, this is equally good in taste. I love them but I just haven’t bought them more than a handful of times since they have been available to buy locally. My go to is Snickers, my fav movie (theatre or at home) snack is M&M peanuts and a reward once in a while is Toblerone.

I recently bought two of them and was pleasantly surprised as how much I like them as a desert. However there is this monstrosity known as a deep-fried Mars bar. A deep-fried Mars bar is an ordinary Mars bar normally fried in a type of batter commonly used for deep-frying fish, sausages, and other battered products. The chocolate bar is typically chilled before battering to prevent it from melting into the frying fat, despite a cold Mars bar being able to fracture when heated. Somehow it sounds gross but I also want to try it.
