Frequently asked questions

What's with the pennies?


Our grandmothers always told us that you cannot ever gift or sell someone a purse or wallet without including some money. The penny insures that you will always have money. If you are ordering a market bag and are a frequent ALDI shopper, we can upsize the coin holder to allow for a shopping cart quarter.




Do you offer gift certificates?


Yes we do. If you would like to purchase a bag for someone but don't know what color she/he would like, send them a Macski's Gift Certificate and we'll help them make the right selection.




When and how do you ship the food items?


Because all of Macski's food items are perishable, we only ship them Monday - Thursday for one day delivery areas, and Monday-Wednesday for two day delivery areas. We need to ensure that the product is received as quickly as possible and does not spend a weekend on a truck or in a shipping center. All Macski's foods are shipped frozen in insulated containers and sometimes with gel packs or dry ice. The time of year and delivery distance dictates what method we use.




What is your return policy?


If for any reason you are not pleased with your gear purchase, we will refund your full purchase price as long as there is no damage or wear to the product. No returns of food products.




Can I take the haggis out of its casing and pan fry it instead of baking it?


You can, however, we do not recomment deviating from the cooking instructions on our labels. When our haggis is packaged, the oats are uncooked. It takes time for them to properly absorb the moisture and oils in the haggis mixture. Pan frying the haggis will not afford proper time or conditions for the oats to become fully hydrated and the end result will be crunchy oats and gooey haggis.Haggis, if properly cooked, will be light and somewhat crumbly.




Can I deep fry the wee pasties instead of baking them?


Yes you can, and we have had food vendors do that at Highland Games rather successfully. Our preferred method of cooking them is by baking them.




Is Macski's haggis real haggis?


Yes it is. The main difference between our haggis and that which you can get in Scotland is that in the US we are not able to use the "lights" (lungs) from animals. Our experience has been that lungs do not have any real flavor and were probably only used as an inexpensive filler. Haggis traditionally was made from the organs of sheep. Haggis made with beef and pork are more recent changes that have probably been made to lower the cost of production. Substituting any other meat for lamb will significantly affect the flavor of the haggis. Macski's recipe is an ALL LAMB recipe.




I have Celiac disease. Is it safe for me to eat haggis?


It is if the haggis was made with certified gluten-free oats. All of Macski's Haggis is made with gluten-free oats. Though oats by their nature do not contain gluten, if they are processed in a plant that also processes wheat, there can be cross contamination. Certified gluten-free oats are processed in plants that do not process ANY gluten products.




Is your vegetarian haggis a vegan product?


No, it is not. Inorder to create a flavor that approximates organ meat, we have chosen to add eggs to our vegetarian haggis.




How long may I keep a haggis in a freezer or fridge?


Frozen haggis will remain good for up to 18 months in a freezer. Once thawed and refrigerated, it should be cooked and consumed within 7 days.
