Speyside ice cream store launches new twist on Scottish favourite for Burns Night

An experimental Speyside ice-cream shop has launched its own twist on a Scottish delicacy to celebrate Burns Night.

Yesterday the Fochabers Ice Cream Parlour started serving scoops of haggis potato scone desserts to intrigued customers in honour of the Bard.

Owner Sheila Gray baked her own breakfast snacks to ripple through the already popular whisky-flavour before sprinkling extra haggis over the top.

She said: “I just like to try different things. We have about 26 flavours on the go but it’s important to always be creative and think about what the next hit will be.

“It doesn’t always work out. I made black pudding once and didn’t think it was good. The haggis tattie scone was a big hit with the staff so I thought we would give it a go.”

The flavour has now taken its place in the High Street store next to other twists on Scottish favourites including Edinburgh Rock, Tunnock’s tea cakes and Irn-Bru.

Meanwhile, the Mackie’s 19.2 parlour in Aberdeen has relaunched its own haggis and marmalade flavour for the weekend.

Manager Yvette Harrison said: “While marmalade is not a traditional accompaniment for haggis we added a ripple to help make it a little tastier when served cold.”
