Oh Sue, you've no idea what you're missing! Haggis is truly one of the greatest delights of humankind! I've eaten haggis on the Isle of Skye and the banks of Loch Ness. I've eaten haggis in Edinburgh and Inverness, in Stonehaven and Drumnadrochit. I've had it out of a tin, out of synthetic casings, and out of a real sheep's stomach as is traditional. I've had haggis with whisky sauce and haggis on a pizza. I've had it made from sheep, as it is supposed to be, and from beef, a weak but still delicious Americanized imitation. I've had haggis for breakfast, lunch and dinner... Sometimes in a single day!
Haggis is made from chopping the heart, liver, lungs, and suet of a sheep, mixing it with oats, onions, pepper and spices, and boiling it in a cleaned sheep's stomach. While it is currently illegal to import into the United States, you can still find local branches of the St. Andrews Society who celebrate Burns' Night (the 25 of January) with American made haggis done with the traditional recipe.
Haggis is amazing. It is the breath of warm air that hits your face and reddens your cheeks when you step in out of the cold. It is the aroma of Thanksgiving dinner, the perfect blending of various delicacies and the mouth watering scent they give off. Haggis is the comforting cuddle of a warm puppy. It is the tantalizing spice of a lover's lips. It is the crunch of a Christmas cookie; the nourishment of a feast after fasting. When the casing is split open, and the steaming hot stuffing springs forth, it is the crescendo of a symphony! It is the first kiss of a passionate romance! It is the vanquishment of evil! It is the glow of salvation!
Haggis, quite simply, is divinity itself.
Arby's, on the other hand...... I hear the "roast beef" starts life as a canister of liquid that is poured into a solidifying machine, gelatinized into a loaf, and then sliced for your enjoyment. To each his or her own, I say.
