A Scottish fish and chip shop has launched a collection of calorific deep-fried Christmas puddings for the festive season.

Dinners at Reivers Fish Bar in Duns, Berwickshire, will be able to tuck into a 950-calorie battered yule log, nearly four times as much as the traditional desert.

The Scottish chippie is also selling deep-fried mince pies and Christmas puddings.

Rona Johnston, who runs the Reivers Fish Bar, said although it seemed a weird combination, the puddings were actually very tasty, according to media reports.

‘Going down fabulously’

“All the Christmas treats are going down fabulously,”​ she said. “We serve each pudding with Scottish cream. They make everything very tasty.”

The mince pies sell at three for £1, the Christmas pudding is £1.50 and the yule log is £2.50.

Johnston said she would try to deep-fry most things, provided it did not ruin the frying oil.

“People often come in asking me to fry the strangest things,”​ she said. “If it’s possible, we’ll give it a go.”  

Previously Reivers has deep-fried Oreo cookies and Cadbury Creme Eggs.
