Deep fried culture


There's an interesting piece on today's BBC Scotland site, concerning the way in which the world is beginning to see the Scottish diet. Under the spotlight is the deep-fried Mars Bar (I think the Mars Bar here is known as a Milky Way in the US), which, despite a few claims to the contrary, is not exactly difficult to find.

Apart from the overall nutritional value of this concoction, the most worrying aspect of the situation must be the way in which Scotland is considered overseas. How does everyone think of Scotland - not as it used to be, but as it is now?
