Aww, that's what the smell is :doh:



Haggis can be really nice, or really bad.

I see below the haggis on your link they're advertising pickled onions, don't you have pickled onions in the US? :scratch:

I'm sure we do but they are primarily catering to British expats and their brand loyalty, it is also more of a specialty item in the US than I imaging it is in Briton.

Yes. I love pickled eggs. But I make them myself (spicy).

Pickled cockles.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

If we have them in the US, my revulsion to the concept has induced in me a selective amnesia and I can't remember seeing such things

sex sells, so it doesn't matter whether the ad is sexist or not - don't like it? then don't buy the product.
