Scotland’s unhealthiest snack – a whopping 1,200 calories – is so full of fat that it slows the supply of blood to the brain.

Experts say that men who already have narrow arteries are most in danger.

Glasgow University researchers fed battered chocolate bars to 24 volunteers.

They found that just 90 minutes later, blood flow to the brain was reduced in men though there was no major change in women.

The study was led by Professor Matthew Walters, stroke consultant at Glasgow’s Western Infirmary and director of the Scottish Stroke Research Network.

Student William Dunn, who performed scans on volunteers, said: “We’ve shown that eating a sugar and fat-laden snack can actually affect blood flow to the brain within minutes.

  1. Never heard anything so ridiculous in my life! The people who ask for these things are usually tourists or idiots trying things on. I have seen grown men, teenagers etc have a bash a being “the big cheese” and eating one, each one of them vomited them up before they had even finished them.
