Real haggis - £4.99 @ M&S

Found 25th Jan 2011Made hot 25th Jan 2011
I'll be honest, its not a deal in terms of price as you can get haggis this size for £3.50 in Sainsburys. However M&S are selling proper ones, made with lamb and in a proper casing. They are 2lbs in weight and cost £4.99, if you're celebrating Burns Night I'd go for one of these rather than a Wall's one.

Not everyones cup of tea, I'd don't expect this deal to get hot, but if you like haggis I just wanted to give you a heads up

How can M&S be selling proper ones if it contains Lamb (I presume you mean Lamb Meat)? Real Haggis only contains sheep offal, heart, liver and lungs.

'Real Haggis' lmao didnt know there was pretend ones lol

No, its lamb offal. Most haggis sold in the UK use pork offal instead.

Lamb lung (35%), Beef fat, Lamb liver (12%), Pinhead oatmeal (12%), Water, Lamb heart (5%), Oatflour, Onions (3%), salt, ground spices.

You can veggie ones!

Thanks for clarifying that, good to see they are being traditional, even though I wouldn't personally want to eat offal lol.

Don't knock it til you've tried it, its lovely

To be fair, I know exactly what you mean. I was the same with insects, and even after trying them I'm still not convinced! My mind says no regardless of what my tongue says, so I don't enjoy it. I tried haggis as a kid though, so have no preconceptions.

I love haggis it's the dogs ****** or should that be lambs

Really? I'll have to head down, I love the stuff. Freezes well and I use it in several recipies. Try it stuffed in chicken thighs, and wrapped in bacon with a creamy whisky sauce

I personally like MacSween's haggis and Waitrose are doing these at a very good price (at least when compared to my local deli). Would be interested to know how M&S's compare.

TBH I usually get a MacSweens, we have a local butcher that gets them in to order. Nowhere else I've found gets them though, saw one on the deli counter at Sainsburys last night but it was just a Walls one

I got MacSween from asda for £2.60 somthing at the weekend... there 'real' haggis too... parents served me butchers stuff last night and it was amazing(compared to halls)!!!

Asda were doing a deal on JUMBO haggis could have been £6 each or 2 for £10? But it was actually the length of my forearm! HUGE... ideal for freezing or a burns supper!! Will see if they are reduced after tonight!!

£1.50 @ morrisons on the boil now , & neeps & tatties

I wouldn't eat Haggis if you paid me! But a good deal I suppose, if you like your haggis to be traditional

anyone reciting a poem tonight?

A kilo of haggis goes a long way, so this is a great deal for a traditional one in the proper casing (sheep's stomach).

Cracking stuff, really looking forward to mine later tonight.

Are these the farmed haggis or were they shot in the wild ?

Macsween's haggis for me thanks.

Grim! Don't know which is worse this or mega cheapo sausages??
Then again I guess some people must eat it or it wouldn't be on the shelf!

Lamb offal in those too.

There was a young fella from Jotum
Who had an unfeasibly large ......

my understanding of haggis was that the had 4 long legs and 4 short legs to enable them to run around the hills very fast ...i tried and failed on numerous occations to catch them but the were far to fast so heres is some heat..good work.

I love the stuff and surprisingly so do my kids, we dont have it often but its a nice change from black pudding with a breakfast sometimes.. Hot .

Banned

It's just tastes so offal! And of course its very healthy for you thats why Scotlands men live the longest..........

I got the M&S vegetarian ones by mistake,tasted quite nice though,but you do need a sauce/gravy with them as they are a bit dry.

Who bent double and sucked on his .....

Couldn't eat it myself. But it is nice to know that the leftovers I don't want to eat are not going to waste.

Just came back from a "haggis hunting trip" in the highlands,cunning little blighters didnt have a chance to shoot one all the time we were there!In the end they had to bring some in from a local butchers for us to eat they taste a little of lamb.Will be back next year to try and bag one of them "Nessies"

This!!

Whilst the price for this haggis from M&S may be decent if you want the "real" haggis then the butchers is the way to go. If you are in Scotland you really shouldnt be messing about with this rubbish!

If only I lived in Scotland! Last time I was up for a wedding I cleared out the local butchers, bought 11 of them. He thought I was mental!

Best I can get down here is MacSweens, which is good, but I have to get it ordered in advance. Only one butcher gets them, the rest all seem to have Halls.

On a totally unrelated issue - how I miss "Oor Wullie" & " The Broons"
Always got the annuals at Christmas.

If you are that passionate about it, get a decent recipe and buy your own sheep offal from a butchers and make your own just as good.

Ode Tae A Fart

Oh what a sleekit horrible beastie
Lurks in your belly efter the feastie
Just as ye sit doon among yer kin
There sterts to stir an enormous wind
The neeps and tatties and mushy peas
Stert workin like a gentle breeze
But soon the puddin wi the sauncie face
Will have ye blawin all ower the place

Nae matter whit the hell ye dae
A'body's gonnae hiv tae pay
Even if ye try tae stifle
It's like a bullet oot a rifle
Hawd yer bum tight tae the chair
Tae try and stop the leakin air
Shifty yersel fae cheek tae cheek
Prae tae God it doesnae reek

But aw yer efforts go assunder
Oot it comes like a clap o thunder
Ricochets aroon the room
Michty me a sonic boom
God almighty it fairly reeks
Hope I huvnae **** my breeks
Tae the bog I better scurry
Aw whit the hell it's no ma worry

A'body roon aboot me chokin
Wan or two are nearly bokin
I'll feel better for a while
Cannae help but raise a smile
Wiz him! I shout with accusin glower
Alas too late, he's just keeled ower
Ye dirty **** they shout and stare
A dinnae feel welcome any mair

Where e'ere ye go let yer wind gan’ free
Sounds like just the job fur me
Whit a fuss at rabbie's party
Ower the sake o one wee farty

Regards Akram Ali (although I can't have Haggis)
