DESCRIPTION: A wholesome version of an iconic American snack food, EPIC Pork Skins are created using traditional methods inspired by our grandparent's generation. A blend of organic, non-GMO, pastured, and antibiotic free pork combined with simple seasonings are the foundation for this simple, yet nourishing approach to creating enchanting food that is both time tested and trusted by consumers.
What is a rind? A rind is a fried pork skin taken from either the belly or back of a hog. This skin is softer in texture and has more subcutaneous fat when compared to the shoulder. As a result, when cooked, these parts of the hog have a fluffy texture and are often considered "porkier" than pork "cracklings". Additionally, pork rinds have very little meat cooked into the product. The end result is the perfect lightweight snack that melts in your mouth.
What is a crackling? A crackling is a fried pork skin taken from the shoulder region of a hog. The shoulder skin is a tougher texture and has less subcutaneous fat when compared to the back and belly. As a result, when cooked, this part of the hog has a harder and crispier bite than a pork "rind". Lastly, cracklings contain small pieces of meat that adhere to the skin. Unlike pork rinds, this adds extra protein to your new favorite snack!
