    With an opportunity to spend over a week in Edinburgh, Scotland we were able to sample a wide spread of Scottish food and eat Scottish cuisine.

    Our first meal was Haggis, a national dish of Scotland, which is a savory pudding made with sheep's pluck (heart, liver and lungs) with neeps and tatties.

    We washed that down with a Hot Toddy - a concoction of whiskey, lemon and honey.

    I had reservations about this dish but surprisingly instantly loved it!

    How could we visit Scotland and not try a deep-fried chocolate bar? We started off first with a deep-fried mars bar and then tried a deep-fried snicks and a deep-fried twix.

    The melted chocolate and deep-fried goodness was an instant hit with our ever discerning taste buds.

    We followed up with a taste test of various Scottish snacks and junk food:

    1) Irn Bru (a fizzy drink that wasn't a big hit for us)
    2) Mackie's of Scotland's Haggis and cracked black pepper flavored chips (Scottish crisps) I really like these chips!
    3) Crabbie's Ginger Beer - it was delicious!
    4) Butterscotch chocolate - yum! How could you not like chocolate?
    5) Scottish shortbread cookies - amazingly tasty!
    6) Tablet - I loved it but Audrey hated it

    Overall I loved:

    Haggis, Neeps and Tatties, Haggis crisps, Ginger beer, Butterscotch chocolate, Scottish shortbread cookies, tablet and deep-fried Mars bar.

    I didn't like the following:

    Irn Bru
