vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

Soft food. Tasty to some.

tatties are potatoes
neeps are turnips - though in Scotland the turnip is actually a swede, or rutabaga
haggis - made with sheep offal. it has a rather peppery taste, so would actually be the spiciest food on this plate

for Sunday Stamps - food

I had my share of neeps and tatties when at university in the 1950s. Have never seen these stamps. Do you know when they were issued?

Offal is the only thing I don't like to eat! However, the stamp is interesting.

Here you have my (very different!) food stamps.

I was last over in 2014, so that would be when I bought them. I believe you can only buy them at museums and art galleries.

neither do I, though I have had haggis which wasn't as bad as I feared. a small amount was enough and I had to push aside any thoughts of what was in it!

Mail Adventures said...

I'd probably try it. But, as you say... a small amount!

The "turnip is a swede" is also true of northern England, curious isn't it, I don't know where this root vegetable border ends as you travel south.
I venture outside with food this week here

To me, very good haggis tastes good, all other haggis tastes pretty awful.

I'd prefer the food from Spain's Almeria province.
