Next Secret Ingredient on Chopped


Would you try haggis potato chips? Mackie's hopes so (I think I've found my next prize giveaway...).

sure thing! my strange love for processed meat exceeds all things.

and the ways they can make flavors?!!? Those Late Night Dorito's? Tanner had some that were Cheeseburger...they tasted so much like a cheeseburger it confused my mind and my stomach. We found them addicting in a perverse, disgusting sort of way?

Harriet Michaels: Do you actually like haggis?
Charlie Mackenzie: No, I think it's repellent in every way. In fact, I think most Scottish cuisine is based on a dare.

I have no idea what this would taste like or even look like in chip form. Their website doesn't even show a picture of the chips.

Sweet Jesus, I just did a Google Image search on "Haggis Chips". Not for the faint of heart.

Considering these are made with pork flavoring instead of the original sheep, I'll say no thus providing me with an excuse that makes me sound like I would actually taste it...

Haggis crisps aren't that strange. CO would try them. Since they're crisps(as most 2nd graders can read on the package or even Stevie Wonder), they're only potatoes with flavoring. CO knows they picked pork flavoring since sheep flavoring isn't as strong.

When CO was in the UK, they had a bunch of types of crisps.

CO bought several out of curiosity at Tesco.

These were Walkers crisps. CO took pictures because CO thought it was interesting.

-roasted chicken and thyme(CO bought this one and yes...it did taste as advertised)
-thai sweet chili
-cheddar and onion chutney
-balsamic vinegar and carmelised onion(bought this)
-southern style bbq
-buffalo mozzarella and herbs
-oriental red curry
-poppadoms lime and coriander chutney
-peking spare ribs


They had a bunch of other flavors(like Haggis, curry, lamb, prawn cocktail, steak, etc) from other brands, but CO only wanted to buy a few since CO was busy buying imported Iberico ham and great, raw local cheese from the local cheesemonger and charcuterie.


People just get freaked out because they see the word 'Haggis' and they fail to see the word 'crisps'.

Sorry CO, I'm still suffering from the Canned Haggis used on a recent Chopped episode. I know they are crisps/potato chips but still I'm not running around asking for Lays to produce a Scrapple Flavored potato chip.

Captain Obvious totally understands.

CO had POORLY(very undercooked) cooked black and white pudding in the UK/Ireland and CO was very nauseous several times in the morning.

BTW-CO didn't mean to insinuate that you didn't read the package :)

Gross. But I'd try it before I would eat Durian, which is an ingredient on the Chopped episode I'm watching now.

I'm not sure what Chopped is, or haggis (though I've read about it, I can't quite figure it out...)

But!

I would like to follow Captain Obvious around for about two weeks and see what the Capn eats every day. Ha.

The only time I ever had haggis, I really liked it, so yes, I'd try the chips and I'd eat the real stuff again. Canned, though? Not so much.
