So I found those fried crispy pork rinds at my local supermarket and was wondering if I could have them since they're fried in 'their own fat' and only some salt is added, and THEY ARE DELICIOUS and nice when you can't have regular chips. They're also quite cheap and have alot of fat.

just get the ones that only have pork skin and salt. Flavored ones usually have wheat, soy and other unrecognizeable ingridients.

Nothing wrong with them at all. As long as they are "fried out pork fat with skin attached" and have no additives then they are 100% paleo (and low carb too). I find them to be addictive and delicious. Great replacement to crappy chips. Awesome for eating dips like guacamole, salsa, etc. Btw, it's a great source of collagen if you're into that sort of thing (it is skin after all).

Sure why not. However I've tasted pork rinds and never found them to be delicious. They just taste like salt to me. What brand are they? Maybe I'm missing out on something great.

I would only use them as an occasional snack. If a pig was killed by a non human animal, the skin would probably be left to the maggots, the fatty meaty parts would go first.

I've read that they are a good source of choline...here's a quote from Wiki about choline: "Choline's importance as a nutrient was first appreciated in the early research on insulin functions when choline was found to be the necessary nutrient in preventing fatty liver. In 1975, scientists discovered that the administration of choline increased the synthesis and release of acetylcholine by neurons. These discoveries lead to the increased interest in dietary choline and brain function."
