Bourque's Supermarket - Port Barre, LA

-- It was a pleasant drive to Port Barre for our most recent venture onto the Cracklin Trail and low-and-behold we were not disappointed: Just the opposite really.  These cracklin are touted as being "world famous."  Truth is, a lot of homemade items at Bourque's are given that title.  I'll leave the veracity of such claims to another thread.  Suffice it to say that these cracklin were fresh, super meaty, crunchy with a perfect complement of fatty moisture adding texture and tons of flavor.  There was the hint of sweetness in the seasoning which we wish had been a touch hotter, but that is really just quibbling.  We'll be back for these and we suggest that you give'em a try.

A glorious bad of Bourque's cracklin

Bourque's won the Port Barre cracklin cookoff a couple of years back and that is a high honor.  Clearly, they aren't just resting on their laurels.
