This is just a quick question in terms of having pork scratchings as a snack. I've heard mixed reviews and just wanted a few extra oppinions, as i don't have a packet on hand to check the content or much time to do my own researching today.
At the moment i lean towards the good as i'd rather eat these then a big bar of dairy milk or something similar, but generally i feel i need meaty snacks throughout the day if i don't have any leftover joints cooked which i can pick at.
If some pros and cons could be listed i'd appreciate it.

The only negative thing i can think of, is the type of fat they use to fry them, the great majority being industrialized seed oils. If that isn't the case of the ones you get, i don't see why you shouldn't indulge.

just baked a half pigskin, plenty pepper + spicy spice. addictively good. never again will i buy 'packet' pork scratchings. most of the ones you buy in the shops contain hydrolysed soya protein and loads of other 'stuff'.. these are pure pork skin and fat and ultra tasty.. only thing i'm not sure of is the shelf life! not that they will last very long round here. :D honestly give it a try. its like an orgy in your mouth... ohhh myyyy!
