Scottish haggis is coming back to Canada after 46 years and Canadians don’t seem too bothered
The foodstuff will now be available in Canada following a ban.
Scottish haggis will be sold in Canada after being banned for 46 years.
Macsween of Edinburgh has developed a slightly different recipe to enable it to sell the treat across the pond.

Haggis purists may not be happy with the change, however, as it removes offal from the recipe in order to meet Canadian import standards.
While the news was celebrated by Scottish businesses, it seems Canadians on Twitter aren’t too fussed about the Scottish delicacy.
Haggis should be shot on sight.👀

#Offal or not, Scots haggis exports to Canada may resume after 46 years but it's not long enough for most Canucks.

A more accurate headline would be "Canada will be able to attempt to enjoy haggis for first time in 46 years".

For what its worth, this Scot is sorry.
Just read that a change in recipe will mean that Canadians can once again import Scottish haggis!
I'm so sorry, Canada. So, so sorry. pic.twitter.com/bZpcYdO9JQ
