Haggis Chocolate – Just a Deceptive Headline

April 27th, 2010 by Rosa

Via the Facebook page of Hedonist Artisan Chocolates comes a story of a Scottish chocolatier who is making haggis chocolates.

Alas, the gross-out isn’t as gross as story’s headline would lead you to believe:

Ellingham does not use actual haggis in the chocolate truffles, but instead blends spices including nutmeg, mace and black pepper, as well as oatmeal, in order to recreate the distinctive flavour of haggis.

That doesn’t sound so bad, actually. But just you wait – someday the bacon+chocolate trend just might evolve into an offal+chocolate trend.
