An Aberdeenshire chippy has created its own unique take on deep fried chocolate by offering its customers battered Jaffa Cakes.

The team at the Blootoon Fish Bar in Peterhead posted a picture of the new creation on their Facebook, with the sweet treat priced at £2.

“We already do Mars Bars, Snickers and Twix – we’ve even tried battered Creme Eggs – the Jaffa is just something new we are hoping will be a hit.”

The area is famous for having launched the craze for deep-fried chocolate in the 90s, with the deep-fried Mars Bar invented by The Haven, a fish and chip bar in Stonehaven now known as the Carron Fish Bar.

Though the responses to the new offering were mostly positive, the reaction to the post has been a bit mixed.

One user joked: “I’m never going to be thin. Sign me up for a few hundred of these.”

While another asked if they were “giving out free samples”.

However, someone else added that the Jaffa Cakes had been “ruined”.

Would you try them?
