    Re: How often have you eaten haggis yet?

    The first two would be correct without "yet". The third is correct.

    Re: How often have you eaten haggis yet?

    I think the first would be correct if 'yet' was replaced with 'so far'.

    Yes, but it would not be necessary.

    Re: How often have you eaten haggis yet?

    Have you ever eaten haggis? (Have you eaten haggis at least once in your life?)
    How many times have you eaten haggis? (Self-explanatory)
    How often do you eat haggis? (I know you eat haggis but I want to know the regularity with which you eat it.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I had it several times in Scotland and liked it.

    'How should I' or 'how can I' should be used instead of 'how to' in a question.

    I am not Scottish, but I cannot work out why people don't go for it- it is a great food to me.

    You're supposed to have your haggis with neeps and tatties and Scotch whisky.
