Diet? What diet?

A while back I wrote about the lower life expectancy in Scotland. This has a number of drivers, but poor diet is one of them. In the same blog I made a reference to the nutritional abomination that is the deep-fried Mars bar.  One of our London-based clients confessed that he thought this was a myth made up and propagated by the media. Sadly, I can confirm that it is no myth, as evidenced by the picture I took this weekend of a sign in a cafe window in Broughton Street, Edinburgh:

Deep-fried Mars bar

You might think this is bad enough. However, the same cafe also offers a topical alternative to its patrons:

Deep-fried Cadburys creme egg

We wish all our readers a relaxing Easter break. Preferably without deep-fried confectionery.
