Scottish food that should be banned.

When I moved to Scotland I discovered many uniquely Scottish gastronomic delights that I never knew existed. Some are delicious. Some, frankly, should be made illegal they are so gross. Here is my list.

Thumbs up

Haggis. Not very slimming but so tasty.
Empire biscuits (2 shortbread biscuits sandwiched together with butter cream, icing on the top and finished off with a single jelly tot. They look a bit like biscuit boobs.)
Tablet. Sort of sugary buttery fudgey stuff.
Morning rolls Nick thinks these should be called air rolls because they are very light. But I like them.
Cullen skink. An absolutely amazing fish soup.

Food to be outlawed

Deep fried mars bars. (Deep fried poo?)
deep friend haggis. Just too greasy.
Scotch pies. Or as I like to call them, grizzle pie. Bleugh.
Macaroni cheese pie. (how many carbs can the body handle in one sitting?)
deep fried pizza. Just wrong.
Clootie dumpling. So stodgy you can't walk afterwards.

I beg to differ. Deep fried haggis with chips was one of the reasons we moved here. Along with 80" and single malt whisky.

Totally agree with your lists (another freeky coincidence?!) appart from scotch pies, rather nice smothered in baked beans, but soooo unhealthy! No wonder so many of us jocks are big fat beafers!
