Haggis Potato Chips: Scottish Delicacy Debuts in the U.S. Mike Richard December 15 Food + Booze, News, United States 3 Comments This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure. The delightful Scottish delicacy that is haggis never quite took off stateside. If you don’t know: Haggis is the legendary blend of various sheep organs and parts traditionally simmered in a casing made of sheep stomach and served with great ceremony at holiday banquets and other festive Highland and Lowland occasions. It’s not surprising that Americans have never taken a shine to it given our squeamish nature, particularly for foods that don’t come shrink-wrapped and affixed with a shiny USDA-Approved label. But food maker Great Scot International is hoping to change that with their introduction of Haggis Potato Chips to the U.S. market: “We know that flavors with a Scottish twist are popular because Haggis and Cracked Black Pepper is our best-selling flavor,” Kirstin Mackie, managing director of Mackie’s, said in a written statement. Mackie said it was able to replicate the distinct flavor of haggis, which is described as “nutty,” on chips along with a shot of pepper. The chips won Product of the Year at the 2010 Scottish Food and Drink Excellence Awards. I am all over this. 3 Responses Tweets that mention Haggis Potato Chips: Scottish Delicacy Debuts in the U.S. -- Topsy.com December 15 […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Vagabondish.com, Karen Bryan, Cailin O'Neil, Gayle Mavor, Valerie Paton and others.

They taste just like haggis. Even people who don’t like it at all liked them. We’re fans.
