The English have all kinds of myths about the Scottish diet -- like the idea that they eat deep fried Mars bars (think Milky Way).
At least, I thought it was a myth until, after a terrific Thai meal, one of my guests (an American of Taiwanese descent, as it happens) took us to a chip shop for dessert and there we did indeed have (in my case one bite of) deep fried Mars bars. They didn't mention it on the board over the counter, though -- and it was in the heart of England.
