This would seemly make a great snack,but I haven't been able to find any brand not cooked in soybean oil. Anyone know of any I could buy online??

I liked mine a lot. Like I said, they're much crunchier than the store bought variety. The thinner the skin, the more tender the rinds. Good luck!

paleotron, thanks so much for the link to your site. I have tried a number of different ways of making pork grinds/cracklins/chicheronnes at home and yours is def the simplest. Trying it out tonight. Again, thanks. -ben

@Tracey, you can find some more suggestions about buying and/or preparing pork rinds in a previous thread: http://paleohacks.com/questions/1266/cracklins-grattons-or-chicharonies

UTZ is fried in lard, but maybe they don't have them in your region. I can get them everywhere in NYC and found them in VA, but I had never seen them when I lived in the Midwest

If you can find pig skin at your butcher/grocery store, you can just make some at home. They're more crunchy than the store bought variety, but they'll get the job done. Especially if you're looking for some breading.

I get Mac's Pork Cracklin (http://www.macssnacks.com) from walmart, the unflavored kind. Their skins are fried out in their own pork fat. And they are super tasty!

Ingle's stores in NC carry the ironically named "Hog's Heaven" brand with an even more ironic label showing a smiling pig flying with wigs and a halo! I have always loved the plain, even before i discovered paleo. (a little salty, but just pig and salt) all other flavors have MSG, unfortunately... even the black pepper flavor! Oh, their slogan is "Put a little South in your mouth!" Soooouuuueeeee!!! Now that I've "drank the paleo kool-aid" I can enjoy my favorite deep fried skin without the smattering of guilt I had before!

Here in southern NV, I'm eating Dos Ranchitos brand. They just list pork rinds and salt. They are in large pieces rather than machine-cut uniform ones. They have a strong pork smell and taste so I'd be very surprised if they're fried in anything but lard.

Here in Texas, the HEB brand (hill country fare) pork rinds list their ingredients as pork skins and salt.
