Is Haggis in for a USA Revival?

 "It was the haggis, a brownish lump sitting unobtrusively to one side of the plate, that drew the most riveting attention." - Tom Knapp 

Since the 1971 UK foot and mouth outbreak, haggis imports have been banned in the USA resulting in millions of Americans missing out on Scotland’s most famous pud.

Unsurprisingly, this has caused a lot of distress among our American counterparts. Millions of Americans claim Scottish ancestry, and enjoy celebrating Scottish holidays.
