Poche's - Breaux Bridge

At only $875 per lb. these are the lowest priced cracklins we've found.
 --- Poche's is one of our favorite stops for a great lunch.  Unfortunately, we've never cared for how they treat their cracklin.  Keeping them trapped in a lidded generic 5 gallon bucket is off-putting.  What we get are almost never warm and the bag frequently has lots of crackling crumbs.

 The news isn't all bad .  They're seasoned decently (salty but not spicy) and have a fair amount of meat (though skin and fat predominate).  The meat has both crunch and, in some cases, a little moisture remaining. They're tasty and value priced.

More cracklin crumbs than we'd like.
The jury is still out on how we feel about the red ink on our pork skin
We're NOT big fans of the industrial plastic bucket as a cracklin vessel.
