Aldi and Simon Howie are also offering alternative options to a traditional Burns Supper with, Gluten Free Haggis, Haggis Bon Bons and Haggis Olives.  Or if you are looking for something with a bit more of a twist, the Curried Haggis Bites with poppadum crust is a must-try for all Burns enthusiasts.
