Whisky & Haggis Crisps

This is a follow-up to the description of haggis, neeps and tatties that I published a few days ago at http://goo.gl/LMF0lA. Today, I discovered that MacKie’s of Scotland also sells Ridge Cut Whisky & Haggis Potato Crisps (that’s potato chips to Americans) as well as Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Crisps. Is nothing sacred? Haggis potato chips… er, crisps?

I assumed these crisps are available in the U.K. but was surprised to learn that Americans can purchase MacKie’s Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Crisps from Amazon although at a high price: $49.99 for a pack of 12 5.3-ounce bags. There is no mention on Amazon of the Whisky & Haggis Potato Crisps, however.

Amazon also sells a number of other Mackies of Scotland crisps, many with flavors that are not commonly found in the States, at http://goo.gl/v59nYp.

I have a wee bit of Scottish ancestry but I think I’ll skip the haggis crisps.


Having a 50% French heritage, I see where Amazon also carries Snails, 12 7.75 oz cans for $41.98, I might have a go at them.


Aye wee Haggis and Whiskey Crisps are really braw!!
Hoots Mon


Haggis crisps are very tasty – a generic savoury flavour. I live in the NE of England and have only found them in remainder shops, but buy a stash when they are available.
As you probably know we call half inch square lengths of potato fried in oil or lard ‘chips’. I think Americans call them fries?


Maybe you can find them in Birmingham in April


I had a large serving of haggis at a Rabbie Burns Dinner in Canada last week-end and it was delicious. Much tastier than the stuff served at many fast-food places, and probably healthier than most sausages and hot dogs.


They’re a bit cheaper from Amazon in the UK only 12.07 pounds for 24 (40gram /1.4oz) packs, even so that is still not cheap. I’ll continue to give them a miss!
