Pork Crackle / Pork Rind review 1st Ed

So pork rinds are a low carber staple food – the keto chip. Can be used as a snack, as nachos base, as breading for meats, even as a dessert when rolled in cinnamon and sweetener. We see all the amazing options there are in the USA but here the pickings are slimmer. I am in Victoria so I can only base my review on what I can get access to. If I come across more I will add them in.

From Best to Worst

Nothing beats homemade

Pros – delicious, cheap, great for breading after a whizz in the blender.

Cons – goes stale after 4 days. Involves a lot of prep and clean up.

The Providore – Balwyn Vic $6.50

Pros – super delicious – I would go so far as to say addictive, which could also be a con. Great crunch and perfect salting. Homemade quality, no nasties like MSG.

Cons – slightly too greasy and lots of little broken bits at the end. Pricey for small bag. No ingredients so I don’t know what oil was used
