We Canadians may not have just enjoyed a long weekend, but here's something that we can enjoy. Mackie's of Scotland award-winning crisps (aka 'chips', here in Canada :), are new on Canadian store shelves!
One of my favourite food blogger perks is getting the chance to try and share new products that are available here in Canada. These fabulous crisps are a perfect example. I love Mackie's "plough to pack" philosophy and am thrilled that their award-winning chips are here in Canada :)
Mackie's of Scotland crisps are now available on Canadian store shelves in a wide range of traditional (such as Sea Salt and Vinegar) and not-so-traditional flavours (hello Haggis and Cracked Black Pepper!). I think you'll love that all of their potatoes are naturally grown, using the best varieties for crisping. Their seasonings, too, are all natural, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. They are also non-GMO and trans fat free.
What really sets Mackie’s of Scotland Crisps apart though is their distinctive texture and taste, that's produced using a unique gentle cooking method which protects the flavour and quality to ensure a great crunch, fresh potato taste and dry texture. So what you’ll taste is the potato crisp, and not the oil!
Look for Mackie's of Scotland Crisps in these great flavours: Mackie’s Mature Cheddar & Onion Crisps, Sea Salt & Vinegar Crisps, Crispy Bacon Crisps, Sea Salt Crisps, Flamegrilled Aberdeen Angus Steak Crisps, Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Crisps, Scotch Bonnet Chilli Pepper Crisps, Honey Mustard Crisps, Tangy Tomato Crisps.

I can't begin to tell you how hard it was to keep these crisps in tact while I prepared this post. My husband asked me daily if they were ready for eating yet :) Yes, he's a chip lover! So when it finally came time to taste these chips, he was quickly all in. We started with the Scotch Bonnet Chili Pepper Crisps. These are definitely where spice lovers should start! Great flavour. We also sampled the Sea Salt and Vinegar and the Mature Cheddar and Onion. Both of these more traditional flavours were fabulous. I loved both the flavour and texture of these chips.
My Favourite Quick and Easy Chip Dip: Horseradish Chip Dip
These Mackie's of Scotland crisps are obviously great on their own, but they also pair beautifully with other flavours. So for a little "Crispinspiration" I thought I would share my favourite quick, easy and delicious chip dip recipe.
This Horseradish Sour Cream Dip has been a favourite for years, both for it's great flavour and it's ease of making. I always have sour cream and horseradish in my fridge, so a little bit of dip is always at hand.
This Horseradish Chip Dip was great with all the chip flavours, but was especially lovely with the Mature Cheddar and Onion!
Horseradish Sour Cream Chip Dip
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 Tbsp prepared Horseradish
- Dash Worcestershire sauce
- Finely chopped parsley (or chives/green onion)
- Freshly ground pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Enjoy!
