Mars – a healthy snack?

Never mind the Curiosity rover, the real Mars news today is that the firm has written to a Scottish chip shop explaining that deep frying their product is not condoned by them because it is not in line with their healthy image.  So let’s understand this a little more – the virgin product is 60 % sugar and 17 % fat, and they suggest that the addition of a little flour and vegetable oil significantly impacts it’s health giving properties?!?  Eat one every day and sure it will shorten your life expectancy, but I wonder how much more life you would lose if each one was deep fried? And even then, would the ‘healthy’ option enable you to live longer or might it just feel that way?

  1. Yes, I’m inclined to think that the flour and vegetable oil are probably the most healthy parts of the deep fried mars bar.
