    Man these last two days i was burstin' for something crunchy...today it was a battle to stay away from the b***uits. But I got to asda, bought me two bags of pork scratchings and have just eaten a bag - spicy too! :D

    Crunchy snack craving satisfied - still on plan. And I have another bag on hand for the next emergency, Happy me. :D

    Agreed! Whenever crisps appeal or munchies overcome me - there are the yummy bags of pork crackling!

    Mmm I love them too, had to ask my boyfriend very nicely not to eat them as he's got a massive box of crisps and they're the one snacky/crunchy thing i can have! I've got the mr porky's ones from asda, only 5 little bags in a pack though, need to find a pound shop!

    I'm still trying to like pork scratchings! I guess after I've been on Atkins a while they will be welcomed? lol xx

    You can get two types - dry ones or ones with fat on.

    I prefer the fat ones, the others are too hard going for me :)

    I find the ones from the pound shop a bit of an endurance test but the asda ones today were yummy! Having a bit of a struggle today so I've been glad of them.

    With cheese FJ? hmmm you now have me thinking 'I wonder what they'd be like with my chilli philly' lol. I think I shall find out soon! :D

    The spicy ones had less than 1g of carbs 100g and it was a 75g bag so I was flying. Yeah, I think you can have them on induction cus I'm staying as close to induction as possible.


    And FJ I can confirm that they are yummy with asda's own cream cheese with chilli. :D That's my snacking well out of the way now - back to three meals a day.

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!

    Hi Sue yes pork scratchings are fine on induction - just check the carbs, as they can vary.

    I bought a bag of scratchings last week and wondered what to have with them. I looked around the (albeit small) shop and all I could find were a selection of cheese dips. I chose a nacho style one, went back to the office excited and ready for this bizarre lunch - and then....it was awful!

    I'll never have that combination again!

    Here's a link to a mock french toast recipe using pork scratchings (the US site says pork rinds, but I think it's the same). No idea what's like, but people have raved about it :)

    I love them, don't worry about the calories! I only have them every 2 or 3 days as a nice snack.
