Home of fried Mars for sale

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE home of the deep fried Mars Bar is up for sale.

The Car­ron Fish and Chip Shop in Stone­haven, Aberdeen­shire, will go down in culi­nary his­tory as the birth­place of the one of the world’s most bizarre snacks.

The calo­rie-laden treat first ap­peared there in 1992 and thou­sands of tourists who want to cel­e­brate its her­itage visit ev­ery year.

Cur­rent owner Tom Wil­son, 67, is hang­ing up his apron but ad­mits he’s tried to stay clear of his most fa­mous of­fer­ing – be­cause he’s wor­ried he’ll get too fat.

He said: “I don’t eat too many, I’m over­weight.

“The cus­tomers in Stone­haven have been very good to me, I’ll miss it, the re­spon­si­bil­ity ev­ery­thing.”

Q: WHICH an­i­mal has a c**t in the mid­dle of its back? A: A po­lice horse!
