Mac's Cracklin Curls - Spicy


Food Review (Posted on 06-26-2017)

I know there are those not fond of pork fat/skins, including those allergic to it, but growing up, this is [still] one of my favorite snacks to date. Like with most snacks where its pieces shed crumbs, it's best to have a non-carbonated drink along with it.

Out of the flavors, which includes Garlic, Original and Límon to name a few, I always am picking up the Spicy flavor (in case you're new to our website, welcome, and I'm a huge fan of the spicy, hot flavors). While Mac's come with bigger ounce bags, this is the smaller version BUT fried pork fat with skin attached to it. Saying that means this isn't pork rinds, per se, but pork fat—chef Emeril Lagasse's favorite ingredient, as a matter of fact.

The taste is mouth-watering good, and the spice is enough to get your taste buds to wake up. The crunch is very good, with a little softness and close-to-melt-in-your-tongue delicious from the pork fat part of the pieces. As mentioned earlier, since the pieces sheds crumbs, don't eat too fast as the crumbs may drop in your throat with the spices, causing you to cough wrecklessly. This is why I recommend having a drink with this, even if it's just water. Yes, it has happened to me before so I know first hand.

Reason for the 5% drop is simply because not all pieces in the bag are edible, nor are some pieces enough to bite into (depending on the bag, so you may want to check before purchasing). Some of those pieces are so hard, you end up just tossing it out (I don't recommend giving such piece to your dog, either). I used to have one piece which not only was soft enough to bite into, but the piece was so big, it occupied half the bag, leaving me out with a few pieces left. That's the only reason, but other than that, it's fine.

For those small road trips that take about an hour or two, this is a great snack to pack with next to you. Remember: get a drink handy.
