Welp, it was bound to happen. And frankly, we say it’s about time. The public of Scotland has risen up to declare that they too want to determine their chips’ flavors, a la Lay’s competition. In response, Mackies, a five year old chip company, has released two new and decidedly Scottish flavors of chips: Scotch Whisky and Haggis, and Venison & Cranberry.
The hope is that the chip flavors will extend beyond Scotland and into international markets in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia, due to the global love affair with whiskey. But let’s not forget the haggis either, because that’s the important part that we are not willing to forget so easily.
For those of you unfamiliar with haggis, it’s a traditional Scottish dish of lamb lung and heart stuffed into a sheep’s stomach. Add to that good old Scottish whiskey and you have what we’re assuming is a delicious combination, to Scotts at least. For the rest of the world, getting around the flavors of offal and organs might be a little too much to take, even despite their appetizing chip-shaped container. Still, whiskey in a chip might be too tempting to not give at least one a try.
Would you give these chips a taste? What do you imagine their reception will be when they arrive in the States? Let us know below!
