Pork Rinds Put the Crunch on Support for Football Legends in Need

Okay, let me say it up front.  I am not a pork rinds fan.  I really am not.  When people offer me pork rinds, I very rarely eat them.  I even questioned whether I really wanted to try these.  But I said I would, so  I did.  Read on, and you will find out what I thought of them.

First things first.  Rudolph Foods is one of the leading brands who is championing the a charitable cause.  They have announced the Second Annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day which coincides with the biggest football day of the year--the second Sunday in February.  For this event, their consumer fans pick a charity for the company to support, and it just so happens to be Gridiron Greats, and nonprofit organization that provides medical and financial help to NFL players in need.  In addition to this, consumers can "play' along and get the chance to win pork rinds, a plasma tv, and more.  Read all about the promotion/cause here.  Read more about the charity here.

I was sent a box of varied pork rinds from Rudolph Foods, and I have to admit that  my first surprise is that these are relatively healthy.  Only 130 calories per bag (approximately), and relatively low in fat and high in protein.  I was not overly fond of the original flavor, but this Bar-B-Que flavor was amazing!  I did not use these to bake anything, but I did find that these made tremendous snacks.  My daughter found them somewhat bland, but my mother (who wear dentures and can't usually eat pork rinds) thought they were pretty good.  Yes, they are a little greasy, but these are light and puffy.  They are also pretty filling snacks.  I can't say that I would want to eat these every day, but for something a little different, these are certainly a treat.  And they also are in keeping with a low-fat, low-calorie diet.
