(Ad - Gifted) A different type of snack. Awfully Posh Pork Crackling - Review!

My fella and I are big snackers and on a Saturday evening when we're watching TV or a film we like to have something a little different. I was recently sent some Awfully Posh Pork Crackling to try out and we did over the weekend.


When I think of pork scratchings or crackling I think of men sitting in the pub eating them but recently there has been a growth in the number of women who enjoying this range. This is likely to be due to the fact that they are high protein and low carb so work well with both the KETO and Atkins approach to meal plans and diets.

At the moment I am in no rush to visit any pubs so eating them at home with a couple of drinks is the next best thing and felt like such a treat.

So what makes this pork crackling so Awfully Posh?

They use pork rinds from the highest quality, outdoor bred pigs, which are hand fried in small batches. As they cool down, they are lightly sprinkled with the unique, natural seasoning blends and absolutely nothing else. Any pieces that don't meet the impeccable standards of the quality control experts are swiftly discarded. The lucky ones that do make the cut are carefully placed into the charming little bags. 

Chilli and Roasted Garlic Pork Crackling

The delightfully crispy texture of our cracklings combined with Ancho chili powder, roasted garlic and sea salt create an addictively delicious taste sensation. It's just the right amount of heat with a perfect crunch and an amazing mouthfeel, delivering a light, yet indulgent snacking experience.

Sea Salt Pork Crackling

The mouthwatering pork cracklings is lightly sprinkled with a balanced dash of organic sea salt, spices and absolutely nothing else as they cool down. A lovely non-greasy texture with the perfect amount of salt and spices developed to highlight the rich flavor of pork skins.

Before being sent these to try I would have never have thought of eating them at home. To me they were a pub thing but I am converted. Stu and I munched our way through these in no time. They were delicious and very moreish. They had the right amount of crunch to them but at the same time not too crunchy. Usually I find anything with chilli too spicy but the chilli and garlic one's were just right. I had that tingle on my tongue but didn't have to stop eating them because they were too hot. The Sea Salt one's were nice but could have done with a little more salt. I still enjoyed them though.

At the moment there are plenty of people still staying home as much as they can because of "the virus" so Awfully Posh set up an Amazon Shop selling their delicious Awfully Posh Pork Crackling and you can still buy them at The British Snack Co online shop

I was sent the Awfully Posh Pork Crackling free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
