The Scottish Government are to introduce legislation that will see takeaways being required to keep salt and vinegar behind screens.
Staff will no longer be able to ask hungry punters if they would like “salt and vinegar?” on their tasty suppers, instead only adding the condiments if they are asked.
“Plenty salt” is to be banned completely as an option in a drive to improve public health.
A Government spokesperson said “Salt is a modern scourge on the diets of Scots, and we intend to legislate against it. Chips are bad enough without making them tasty.”
