I don't think I could deal with eating packaged pork rinds, but when I roast pork shoulder we gorge on the skin. It tastes like bacon and if I can wrestle any away from my family I use it to cook white beans.

Pork and pork products are BIG in Mexico. My dh introduced me to the delights of a chunk of chicharrones eaten with a squeeze of lime juice and a dash of red pepper. I like it so much my sig is a diminutive of the word.

I dont care for pork rinds. I dont think them any worse than hot dogs though. I guess there are certain foods that I just wouldnt want to try because they just sound yucky. I cant bring myself to try menudo or chorizo but my kids LOVE it! I also cant imagine eating tripe or lengua (sp?). To each his or her own with food. I'm sure there are people that would be grossed out by my dipping my mom's spetzels (sp?) in miracle whip....: (havent done that in years though..... )

Here's me I married then we had dd15 , dd11 , ds10 , and then and now we and I blog!

There was an episode of Dirty Jobs where the host worked in a place that made pork rinds - nasty, nasty job. Bleh. Glad I don't have to be the one to do it.

Obviously I wasn't clear: I intended that in defense of OP. What I really wanted to write was that I'm so glad we all have English degrees and can hold everyone to that standard.

Hey, if someone has the nerve to call someone a hypocrite, I think they should have the.. well .. nerve to call them one and not couch it as a "hypothetical" question and then add a "no-flame" suit on top of it.

Excuse the spelling too- I am shocked that there are others here who are so fussy about such things. Forgive me for NOT BEING A PERFECT SPELLER AND A HUMAN BEING. I hope you never get chastized for misspelling something. Its mean, rude and uncalled for.

Forgive me for discovering something new that I was totally shocked about (oh and sorry for being a bit grossed out too- I guess I can't express those feelings since I might offend someone). FWIW, I do want ppl to use the whole animal- I was just unaware that pork RINDS were pig skin. SORRY for not knowing that. Jeez. I have never eaten them and didn't know- I guess that is worthy of being made fun of.

And thank you to those who defended me. I do appreicate it.

Mmmmm chicharrones. (It sounds more elegant than pork rinds.)

They're almost impossible to find up north. They were around a bit when Atkins was really popular, but most of the stores have stopped carrying them again.

They're actually lower fat than potato chips. Go figure.

You don't have any Latin American grocery stores in your area? If you can hunt one down, they sell them by the pound, in huge slices. They also sell chicharrones that are attached to meat, but I don't like this as much because it's not crisp.

I wouldn't be surprised! Pig fat is also high in unsaturated fats, especially the monounsaturated kind (the kind that's in olive oil).

It also makes an adorable screen-name in the affectionate diminuitive.

Hmmm. They don't have any in my town (where the closest we get to ethnic is Taco Bell.) But I know a few places in the city that would likely have something. I love shopping in ethnic markets. And if it means stocking up on chicharrones, all the better!

Heh, I knew there was a reason I liked bacon.

There's an audio clip here

(From "Barting Over," Epsiode 302 EABF05, Orig. Air Date: 2/16/2003 (The 300th Episode ))

Quote:
The episode is actually episode number 302 of the series. Episode 300 of The Simpsons is "Strong Arms of the Ma," which aired February 2, 2003, two weeks earlier. It is not known really why FOX advertised the wrong episode as number 300. It is probably because the network wanted the episode to get better ratings during sweeps period or because this episode seemed more like "300th episode" material, or they may count 7G08 as a Christmas Special and 7G01 as a pilot which doesn't count towards the series total. In the episode, Marge wonders how many times Homer did something crazy and Lisa says it's 300. Marge then says she thought it was 302, indicating that the producers probably knew this was the 302nd episode.

Ok, so what do you call the ones that look like little wagon wheels? People call them chicharrones around here, but they are obviously not fresh from a pig.

Ok, answered my own question:

Anyway, that would be the non-pig chicharrones that are sold by street vendors here.
