If there is ever a time for indulgence, it is the Christmas period. It's the time of year where it is perfectly acceptable to be half-cut in the middle of the day and eating chocolates straight off the miniature tree.
With that in mind, it is our pleasure to announce that people who live in the North East of England - or are willing to travel - will be able to get their hands on some deep fried Christmas chocolate.
OK, so you'll already be aware that a lot of chip shops will deep fry up a Mars Bar for you, but how about Terry's Chocolate Orange? Now that is something quite different.
Robertson's, a chippy on Bridge Street in Whitby, will basically deep fry up anything that you can bring to them. That includes some Christmas classics such as Celebrations.
Sounds pretty good, eh? Well, it sounds interesting, at least.
The owner and proprietor of this fine establishment is Steve Robertson, and he reckons that whatever the public bring in, that's basically what they'll fry up.
He told Teesside Live: "If someone wanted us to fry a box of chocolates for them, then we could.
"Usually we do certain bars - we started off with Mars Bars but then also started to offer Snickers, Bounty, Picnic, Lion Bars and others.
"We even had one person come in and ask us for a deep fried Magnum.
"We tried a Chocolate Orange a couple of weeks ago which ended up being just like a pudding."
Presentation isn't everything, Steve. You'd have to imagine that it was still bloody delicious.
They are actually pretty well known in the world of deep fried confectionery. Apparently, it's not uncommon for the shop to get through a whole box of Mars Bars in a week.
Steve has also now brought in a load of boxes of festive choccies that he'll be punting to anyone who fancies them.
"We can fry a whole box of chocolates, no problem to us," he added.
It is definitely encouraging to know that - if necessary - you could go over to North Yorkshire and have a whole load of Celebrations or Roses battered up and fried.
If this season goes well, they could do all sorts of other seasonal offers.
Battered Toffee Apples? Battered Pancakes? Battered Easter Eggs?
What a time to be alive, people.
