Pork Rinds (From Australia)

My bro and his ladywoman went to Australia for their honeymoon. They brought me back a bunch of strange snacks, which included two bags of pork rinds: one regular flavor, and one spicy bbq.

I am not really a pork rind girl, nor a spicy nor a bbq kinda gal, but, seriously, the regular flavor was very...porkrindy. I needed the delicious spicybbq powder to cover up the strange aroma of fried pork skinz. I can only describe it as a smell and not a taste. Your nose and mouth get filled with the musky scent of rendered hog parts.

This is not one of those things that I crave and love. I ate them because they were in the cupboard and I was starving.

At least they make nice crunchy sounds!


  1. Dude, I love pork rinds! They're like meaty chips with no carbs! I actually pretend I'm being healthy when I eat pork rinds, ahahahaha!

  2. In my memory, I felt like I loved them as a little kid, but for some reason, I could not get out of my head now that I was eating somebody's skin!

  3. Those are actually pretty popular in the UK; my boyfriend eats them a lot.

  4. I think my dad likes them, too! I think of them as a very manly snack for some reason.

  5. I had no idea we had pork rinds in Australia, I thought they were American (maybe I've watched too much Simpsons? D'oh!)
    That brand usually sells salted peanuts and cashews, hence the name Nobby's Nuts.
    Also, the "U" in emu is pronounced like the word "you". :)
