Wash Pot Style Pork Craclkins - Golden Flake

Much worse than they look.
 --- I would say "no surprises here," except that I was surprised!  These were far worse than I even imagined they'd be.  An inauspicious beginning point for a cracklin experience; open the bag and you're hit with the rather unpleasant sent of greasy cardboard.  The bad news continues.  These craclkin stones are hard, hard, hard and their flavor takes the greasy cardboard smell to lower levels.  I'd say it tastes like greasy "old" cardboard.  No meat on these things, but the seasoning is surprisingly spicy.  There are few good reasons for a person to be buying these.  Even if you're in a pinch they do more culinary harm than good. 

THE LOW-DOWN
Price = $1.99 per bag
Crunch = 1 Gratons
Meat/Fat/Skin Ratio = 0 Gratons
I've decided that the less of my food to come out of a wash pot they better.
Seasoning = 2 Gratons
Presentation = 0 Gratons

OVERALL SCORE = -1 Graton

LOCATION
Available in various grocery stores and convenience stores.

  2. You really owe it to yourself to order a batch of cracklin from Bourques to see the difference.

    1. Cracklin from there, is false advertisement. What they sent me was "crap," with a capital "C."

  3. I have to agree with the other Traveler, I drive out of my way to purchase these because they taste just like the ones I use to get in Lafayette, LA. But only 30 minutes away instead of 8 hours. And down where I am from WashPot Style means hard on one side and soft and greasy on the other. Just sayin'
