    I bought these on Sunday and I think I'm addicted!!!! Is it possible to eat too many of them?!

    Its crunchy like crisps and morish like popcorn (two of my favourite things!)

    They are highish in calories so I wouldn't eat too many. I eat a bag of pork crunch and 2-3 days x

    I'm with you Clairecat, I absolutely LOVE pork scratchings! I buy multi packs of Mr Porky crackles and try a limit myself to one small bag a day! Not always easy :)

    I've eaten two 20g bags this morning at work. Glad I didnt bring more.

    Think I might have to not bring any with me here, and try and maybe save them for a weekend treat. Otherwise I'm going to gorge myself to death on them!

    The ones I've seen surprisingly aren't too bad on the calorie front, particularly as they're 0 carb, but not good to overdo them.

    Oooh, never even thought about the pound shop.

    However, I think they're definitly an addiction for me, so I'm not buying any more just quite yet! Otherwise I'd eat about 10 packets of them!!!!

    lol! 121 calories in a 20g bag. Thats about the same as in a packet of square crisps (so im told by my slimming world collegue) which is not bad!

    That's not so bad!
    Have you tried making some? I've had a go but haven't quite got it right yet. Not if I want to keep my teeth anyway!!

    No, but I was looking at a recipe for them earlier (whilst eating a packet of Mr Porky's! lol!) and it sounded too technical for me! Easier to eat it from the packet!

    But if u master it, I demand to have the recipe and photos!!!

    Nom Nom, I agree with this thread. Pork Scratchings are lush. I eat Pork Crunch from Tescos too. Perfect if you just want to eat for the sake of eating - filling.

    the green top ones are the best i've tried so far, £ for 6 bags in the £ shop, or 79p for the same in home bargains.

    as my nearest shop is 10 miles away, i buy about 6 packs(36 bags) at a time, i lurve them!
