Tired of BBQ chips? Here comes haggis

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Scotland's national delicacy, haggis, will soon be available to American snack hounds in potato chip form, a North Carolina importer said.

Great Scot International announced this week it would have Mackie's Haggis and Cracked Black Pepper chips on display at its booth at the annual Fancy Food Show in New York next month.

"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.

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.

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.
