Brim's Pork Cracklin Strips - "Old Fashioned" and "Seasoned"

Two types of cracklins from Brim's.
--- Brim's . . . . . what is there to say?  For some poor souls this is the closest they may ever come to what folks in Louisiana know and love as pork cracklins.  Perhaps ignorance is bliss.  Okay, okay, okay, they're not as bad as the Wash Pot Style we sampled earlier.  Their crunch is actually rather appealing and the seasoning is substantial.  Still, there is no meat (which may be a good thing) and what used to be the fat has taken on a texture that makes sense only when you consider these cracklin "strips" have been sitting in a bag for . . . . .who knows how long.  Both the "old fashioned" and the "seasoned" have slightly perceptible pork flavor [Well, calling it a pork flavor might be going too far; perhaps it is a pork "essence."].

Very difficult to tell the difference between these two types of cracklin strips.  Click the pic for a larger view.
When it comes to telling the difference between the two styles, I'm afraid that my pallet is not sophisticated enough-- So, I'd say that the difference can be found in that one is "old fashioned" and the other is in a more brightly colored bag.

    1. I stop at a gas station every morning and eat a bag of Brims regular cracklins while driving to work and drink a diet coke. Your cracklins are the best I have ever eaten. Keep up the good work! Thanks.
