Hispanic Haggis?

More than 20 years after it began, the United States is considering ending its ban on importing haggis from Scotland.

Imports from Scotland of this national dish, made from a sheep’s “pluck” (heart, liver, and lungs and other offals) have been banned in the United States since concerns grew about BSE back in 1989, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

The BBC went on to explain that Scottish haggis makers are ecstatic that ex-patriots on the other side of the Atlantic will be able to get their product again, and not just on Jan. 25, birthday of the renowned Scottish poet Robert Burns, when it is traditionally washed down with a dram of Scotch whisky.
