Snack Like You Mean It

snack

Raise your hand if you’re just about done with all the crazy snack trends out at the local convenience store. Hey, we know you’re all about the flavor but do you really need to crunch on “anchovy and truffle” potato chips?

For National Snack Food Month, let’s review why the “everyday” pork rind stacks up to all of the other snacks on the shelf with four original flavors!

  1. Humans have been raising pigs for 15,000 years, and we’ve been enjoying the benefits from almost day one.
  2. Pork rinds are versatile. You can substitute crushed rinds with flour in a 1:1 ratio. No need for bacon topping with all this crust flavor.
  3. Pork rinds have more protein than peanuts, with 8 grams of protein in pork rinds vs. 7 grams of protein in peanuts.
  4. Pork rinds have zero carbs. Cut your carbs without sacrificing crunch.
  5. Pork rinds say no to gluten, MSG, and artificial color.
  6. There’s less than 5g of fat and 1g of sugar per serving.
  7. The fat pork rinds do have is healthy fat, most being made of the same fat you would find in olive oil.

It’s the Winter Olympics … Pork Rind-Style

southern olympics

Watching the Olympics and getting a hankering to join in on the competition? We’ve put together a few games … but with a warm state twist. Who needs the snow when you’ve got good ‘ol southern ingenuity?

Luge
This one is a little tricky, please proceed with caution and with your safety in mind. Go down to your auto shop and borrow their mechanic’s creeper (this is the wheeled flat dolly that allows mechanics to do work underneath your vehicle). Take it to the highest hill and push off. Ride the two-man luge with only your best friend.

Curling
This is an easy one. Pull out a few round citronella Patio Torches (round is best), grab a broom, and you’re ready to go. For added excitement light the touches!

Biathlon
The Biathlon event is where you shoot at targets throughout a cross-country skiing course. This event is a little trickier because you’ll need to strap on 2 x 4’s to your work boots and maneuver through a gravel road while shooting at road signs. Come to think of it that may just be another Saturday night in the south.

Now you’ve won your gold medal, sit back, relax and watch the Winter Olympics with a bag of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds.

I’ve Fallen Down on Valentine’s Day and I Can’t Get Up

Ok, the most dreaded of all the holidays is fast approaching … that’s right, we dare to utter the words, Valentine’s Day! Don’t worry guys, we’ve got you covered (you’ll thank us later, ladies). So many questions, so few answers … until now.

  1. Chocolates may be trite, but not if you show your true manly self by coating Southern Recipe Original Flavor Pork Rinds with chocolate. Nobody can resist this double trouble snack.
  2. You never, ever, never-ever ask a woman, “What do you want for Valentine’s Day?” The best present is to show that you “get her,” which means you don’t have to ask. Just listen to her, she’ll throw you a few bones. Look for comments like, “I really need a _____,” “Her necklace is so beautiful,” or “We’ve never been to that restaurant!” If she says anything like this, take the clue.
  3. You’re not 15 years old, avoid any stuffed animal holding a red heart-shaped box. In fact, bypass the entire red aisle at the local drug store.
  4. This day is not all about material things. Don’t buy the first thing you see on Amazon just because you can get it delivered the next day. No girl wants an electric razor (unless she hints, see tip #2). She’ll be more likely to let her legs go prickly in protest than use it. And no win in that one.

And remember, this day is about you and her, and about celebrating your relationship together. The most important thing is to give her your attention and show her you care, but with your own personal twist.
