I can't believe it took me 29 years to learn the existence of pork rinds, and how delicious they are.

I can't believe it took me 29 years to learn the existence of pork rinds, and how delicious they are. They taste great and are as crunchy as chips, but have protein instead of carbs. And this brand in particular fries the rinds in lard. There is literally zero reason to eat chips. Just goes to show the power of sneed oil propaganda. Not to mention how there is probably tons of pigskin that goes to waste since their meat is in much more demand than the skin. If people stopped eating sneed oil chips and switched to rinds, the market could adapt and start producing more pork rinds, and stop wasting pigskins. I fucking hate vegans and sneed oil companies so much bros its unreal.

        It's mostly proline and collagen, extremely low bioavailbility protein. That's why it says on the side of the bag "not a significant source of protein."

        Modern husbandry wastes no part of the animal. Pigskins are used for a variety of industrial and consumer products. Like footballs.

        That's literally just the spanish word for it. It's like saying "you've never lived until you've had carne asada!" I've grilled a steak before dude.

        Theres pork skins or the mexican word and then there are cracklins.
        Cracklins are pig skin and meat deep fried in lard. Much higher source of protein (actual pork in them).

        think it depends on the country. In beanerland, chicharron is the skin of the pork as well as the meat, like in pic related. If I'm not mistaken there's also a difference between northern and south beanerland chicharron

      Save some money and buy the ones you bake/microwave. I suggest Carolina Gold Nuggets.

      Whats the difference between pork rinds and chicarrons? I never understood this

      Chicarron referes to two things: regular pork rinds and pork rinds with meat still attached. Buy the latter at any Mexican supermarket and some taco joints. It's incredibly tasty especially when mixed with fresh pinto beans. Slightly mash the beans and serve with a salsita and tortillas.

        I bought a 5 lb bag of these once but I kept making them and like 25% of them didn't expand. Also I was trying to make a salt and vinegar seasoning and it didn't work very well.

    The protein here is pretty worthless for muscle (it’s the same kind in your skin, hair, and nails) so make sure you aren’t counting it towards your protein requirements

      Even if it's only good for your skin and hair, this is still a good thing, and infinitely better than sneed oil fried potato chips

            HAH. Welcome to the modern age buddy. They fry it in sneed oil because it is more profitable to sell the lard in the super market or to bakeries/restaurants.

              Some do but most still cook them in pork fat. That's why you read the ingredients.

                They do not have to disclose what oil is used to fry on the ingredients.

                If it’s fried in peanut oil all they have to say is “contains peanuts.” But if it’s canola nothing has to be there.

                Only 3 ingredients listed. Pork rinds, lard, salt. Wouldn't have bought them otherwise, I read every label

                try smashing these up and substituting them for bread crumbs/panko in recipes. it's delicious.

                Good idea. Now I can have chicken parmesan while ketolarding
