  • Background music playing. It's our first meal in Scotland, so we've

  • decided to go with something very typical. We're going to be eating the National dish,

  • which is Haggis. So let's go into Whisky Room. So today's meal is all about Haggis. We are

  • starting with Haggis spring rolls. So let's see what those are like. We've had a lot of

  • spring rolls lately in Thailand, Vietnam and other places in SE Asia. Mmmmmm. Never Haggis.

  • And it's also the first time trying haggis. Oh, so hot! Is it hot? Mmmmmm. I'm pleasantly

  • surprised. Oh, yeah. Haggis is good people! Those are hot. Mmmmmm. Wow, so many flavors.

  • It's delicious. I think I've found myself my new favorite spring roll. Haggis spring

  • rolls. Background my playing.

  • So for those of you who aren't familiar with Haggis it's a savory pudding made with sheep's

  • pluck. And that means a sheep's heart, liver and lungs. And if that doesn't sound appetizing

  • enough it's wrapped in the sheep's stomach and it also includes spices and some oats

  • and onions. So that's what we're going to be trying.

  • Background music playing. It's time to cover this bad boy in some gravy.

  • Oh my, oh my. Look at that. So Haggis is served with neeps and tatties,

  • which is basically turnips and potatoes. First bite. So I've got lots of haggis here. Neeps

  • and tatties. Lots of gravy. The verdict. It's awesome. Yeah. That's not

  • an acquired taste. I love it on the very first bite.

  • Do you like it as much as I do? It's a really nice rich winter dish. And like

  • normally I don't like organs. I've had liver before and it has a very strong flavor but

  • somehow when it's all mixed together and they add spices and the gravy it's perfect. I like

  • it. I like haggis! And it's a cold day today so I'm trying something

  • else very Scottish here. It's a nice warm drink. It's called a Hot Toddy. It's got hot

  • water, whisky, lemon and honey. And that sounds good to me. Take a sip. Oh yeah. It goes down

  • nice. Okay, First sip of the Hot Toddy. I'm not

  • I've ever even tried this whiskey. So let's how it is in a hot drink.

  • Ooooh. It's nice. It really warms you up but it's not a strong and overpowering as I thought

  • it would be. This is nice. And it's also very aromatic because they've put some cloves along

  • with the lemon. Like Christmas. So far you're liking Scottish

  • food. Yeah. Background music playing.

  • Background music playing. What's your name? Sam. Sam how you doing man?

  • We're doing a deep-fried snickers, a Twix and we've already done a Mars bar already.

  • Awesome. I'm going to unwrap it. Stick it in the batter. I can't tell you that because

  • it's my secret. Hahaha...secret recipe? Of course. The Twix. One. Two. Mix it around.

  • Give it a little shake. And there it goes. Ah, that looks good. Now for the Twix. Here

  • is the Twix. There you go. How long do you put them in there? Emmmm, we just keep it

  • about...2 or 3 minutes. We fry them separately. This is just for the Mars bars. Mars bars

  • only. Awesome. So the temperature. This is 170 degrees. And while the batter cooks the

  • chocolate will melt. So the batter will cook before the chocolate. Ahhh, perfect. That's

  • so cool. So we've been hearing lots about the Mars

  • bars but Sam here went overboard and tried three different chocolate bars that have been

  • deep fried. So what do you have? Well, at the recommendation of the guy at the chip

  • shop. He recommended I also try the Snickers and the Twix bar, so we've got it all right

  • here. Let's unwrap that. I don't want to drop it here. Okay. Let's see that thing of beauty.

  • Isn't that gorgeous. Alright, so which is which? So I believe this is the Snickers.

  • We've got the two Twixes here and that is the Mars bar. Alright. And you're feeling

  • a little queasy today, so I'm going to be the one trying them all. Yes, you are. Enjoy!

  • So first up. And you can tell they really feel as though they've been deep-fried and

  • melted. This is flimsy in the hand. Ewww. Yeah, this is a Mars bar. I can tell from

  • what is seeping out. Take a bite. Oh, Wow. That is so much better than just having it

  • on its own. It's all melted inside. It's gooey. And you've got the crispiness from the batter

  • on the outside. Mmmmmm. One more bite. Next up Twix. Next up we have the Twix. This one

  • is a little longer. Oh yeah. Is it still crunchy? Yeah, it's still crunchy on the inside. You

  • can see this. All the chocolate has melted on the outside. It's just so much better than

  • having it normally. And the best for last. Best for last. My favorite

  • of all these bars is the Snickers, so I have high expectations for the deep-fried version

  • here. The battered version. Oh yeah. It just melts. All caramel and chocolate inside and

  • the peanuts. Oh,. Let's see the inside of it? That is amazing.

  • Okay, so you've tried all three. Which was our favorite? Definitely the Snickers. Why?

  • Because I love Snickers bars and this just enhanced it. So, it's not surprising that

  • taking something that is already unhealthy and making it even unhealthier would make

  • it taste better.

  • Music playing. So this afternoon we are going to be doing

  • a little bit of a taste test. So we've raided a Scottish supermarket and picked out some

  • items that we thought looked very local. So we're going to try those and see what they're

  • like. Yeah, overall we've got five different things. Two beverages and three things to

  • eat. So first up I'm going to be trying something

  • called Irn Bru and apparently after Whisky this is Scotland's second national drink and

  • it looks like a regular fizzy drink. It kind of looks like it could be orange flavored

  • but I hear it's just sweet and doesn't really taste like fruit. Oh, I'm going to need help

  • opening this. Hahahaha Rawwwr. Thank you kindly.

  • So it smells very sweet and sugary. It doesn't smell like orange.

  • Hahaha. It's a bit like cream soda maybe. It's just

  • really really sweet. Like sweeter than Pepsi or 7Up. Oh yeah?

  • Yeah, it reminds me a lot of cream soda as well. Which isn't my favorite beverage, so

  • overall I don't think I'm going to be an Irn Bru man anytime soon.

  • Next up we've got Mackie's of Scotland's Haggis and cracked black pepper flavored chips or

  • crisps as they like to call them here. Right, exactly. Chips here would be referring to

  • like french fries, so we're going to call these crisps. Let's open it up here. It's

  • going to be like Kettle style chips. Crisps, I mean. Kettle style crisps. Let's try this.

  • You can tell that has a smokey flavor. Can you taste the Haggis? Ummmm, yeah, kind

  • of but I mean it has more of a an all dressed smokey flavor in my opinion. I do like them.

  • Why won't you be trying any of those delectable crisps? Well, I got really sick shortly after

  • eating Haggis, so just the name, just the sound of Haggis kind of makes my stomach turn

  • a little bit, so I'm staying away from haggis flavored chips this time around, which is

  • good for me because I get to eat them all. I like them. Good.

  • And what do we have here? Next up we have Crabbie's. Here in the back it says that it

  • is best served chilled with ice and lemon but we have neither of those. Room temperature?

  • And actually we don't even know if this is Scottish or not but I think so. Let's assume.

  • It says following in the pioneering footsteps of the first Scots. Well, there we go. And

  • what is it? I think it's a Ginger beer isn't it? Ginger beer, okay. With alcohol.

  • Hmmmmm, what does that mean? Ginger beer. Hahahaha. That's exactly what is is. It tastes

  • very gingery? Yes, I don't love beer, so I'm not going to say I love it but it's a nice

  • smell. It smells like ginger tea. Tell me how you like it?

  • Oh yeah, I like that a lot. It's got a very. It's quite sweet. I mean normally beer doesn't

  • have this sweet of a taste, so this is a nice refreshing beverage. Refreshing at room temperature.

  • True. And we've got Butterscotch chocolate. Let's

  • give it a go. Hahaha, that's upside down but that's okay.

  • Let's try a piece of this. Mmmmmm. Oh wow! Oh yeah, you really taste the butterscotch.

  • It's creamy and sweet and delicious. Is this milk chocolate or is it dark bitter

  • chocolate? No, it's really sweet. You'll love it. It kind of reminds me of Dulce de Leche.

  • Dulce de Leche chocolate huh? Like it then? Yeah. I do like it. I mean normally organic

  • chocolate isn't that great in my opinion because it's a little bitter. A bit too natural for

  • me. But this is quite nice. She takes another bite. Nice and sweet. It's creamy.

  • Shortbread cookies. This is Christmas in a tin. Mmmm, smells like Christmas? Oooooh,

  • those look good. I can tell I'm going to like this. Nice big thick cookies. Crispy? Not

  • crispy. Just crunchy Christmas cookies, you know? Mmmmmm. Going to share those? Maybe.

  • You know this would make a really souvenir people. If you're visiting Scotland get Scottish

  • shortbread. Those are real good. It reminds me of my Mom's

  • shortbread cookies. She used to make for me for Christmas and I would eat a lot of those.

  • And last but not least we have tablet, which is a sweet treat that everyone has been talking

  • about. And this is what I'm most looking forward to having. This is supposed to be very much

  • like fudge and so I can't wait to try it. This one is whisky flavored. Mmmmm....mmmm.

  • Oh yeah! So I'm just going to go at this like it's

  • a chocolate bar. Just bite right in. Smells good. Oh, wow. That is really really really

  • sweet. Is it soft, crunchy, gooey, chewy? It's a little. I wouldn't call it crunch.

  • It kind of crumbles in your mouth and yeah I can taste a hint of the whisky. I mean it's

  • not overpowering. It's more sweet than anything else but there is definitely a hint of whisky.

  • It smells like cheese. Take a bite. That's the smallest nibble ever. Okay, it's sweet

  • when you taste it but it smells like cheese. I'm not kidding. Is that the whisky smell?

  • Could be yeah. Do you like the taste though? Yes. Even though I'm just nibbling at it.

  • I'm like grazing it with my teeth. It does taste nice. Very sweet. The smell? Mmmmm-ooooh.

  • The smell doesn't do it for you? It gets a nay from me.

  • Okay, so favorites. What was the best thing you ate? I really liked the tablet and the

  • ginger beer the most. Why? Well, I just love to eat fudge and I like to drink beer - especially

  • anything with ginger in it. Gingery beers....mmmmm. Okay, so my favorite I would say was the shortbread

  • cookies. Those were really nice. It reminds me of Christmas and least favorite I'd have

  • to say the tablet just because it smelled really bad. I'm sure regular tablet is great

  • but the Whisky flavored one I'm telling you it smells like cheese. Like go buy a pack

  • and sniff that and come back to me. And I think the thing we both didn't like was the

  • Irn Bru. Yeah, it's a bit too sweet but not terrible. I didn't like it at all. That was

  • my least favorite by far. Anyways, so yeah when you come to Scotland try out these products

  • and try out other things and let us know what you think. And if you have any suggestions

  • of things that we should try while we're here in Edinburgh just leave it in the comments

  • below. I think tomorrow we're going to be hunting for some deep-fried pizza. Number

  • one goal. Yeah, we just had the deep-fried chocolate bars today so. Okay, tootles. Bye.

Background music playing. It's our first meal in Scotland, so we've
