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.
