Chocolate haggis Berties

A fish and chip shop in Edinburgh is teaming up with a local butcher to give away free deep fried chocolate haggis in celebration of Burns Night.

Bertie’s Proper Fish & Chips is serving the chocolate-coated delicacy free of charge to the first 100 people who visit the restaurant in Victoria Street quoting “it’s banging”.

The limited edition chocolate haggis – a chocolate brownie pudding – was launched earlier this month by butcher Simon Howie under his retail brand in Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s. Bertie’s will be serving it deep fried with ice cream and caramel sauce, putting a unique twist on a Scottish chippy favourite.

Alberto Crolla, owner at Bertie’s Proper Fish & Chips, said “We’re used to serving the people of Edinburgh and across the world our signature fish and chips. When Simon Howie approached us to make the world’s first ever deep fried chocolate haggis, we jumped at the challenge! Haggis suppers are a firm favourite in the run up to Burns Night and we’re excited to be putting a sweet spin on it for the occasion. We’d encourage chocolate lovers to act fast as once these 100 suppers are gone, they’re gone!”

Speaking about the partnership with Bertie’s, Simon Howie said: “Our customers have been loving the world’s first chocolate haggis and it’s been flying off supermarket shelves since we launched at the start of January. Deep fried chocolate bars have been divisive in Scotland for a while now, but we’re confident our deep fried chocolate haggis will win over even the most discerning of foodie. We’re excited to be working with Bertie’s to put a delicious Burns Night twist on the Scottish delicacy and look forward to hearing what people think.”  

To celebrate the launch, Simon Howie brought the chocolate haggis to life in a remake of Cadbury’s famous ‘Gorilla’ advert from 2007, which can be viewed here.
