Also existing in Australia, the deep fried Mars Bar is a Bondi Beach institution. Once battered in unflavoured batter, the chocolate and caramel are warmed to the point of becoming a semi-solid liquid, but without running together. The result is a solid yet squishy battered bar, that when bitten into, releases the flavours of the Mars Bar in a warm taste explosion.

A side effect of heating the chocolate and caramel is to release long-chain sugars, making it even sweeter than before. Combined with the comparatively savoury batter, it is an experience not to be missed.

It is also almost impossible to finish a whole one quickly. The record in Bondi is three bars eaten in one minute. The local competition had seventeen entries, and fifteen of them ultimately spewed. The remaining two gagged a lot and came close.
