    Default the price of pork rinds, lol

    My DH is following a low carb diet, which helps his diabetes and he has lost weight. Once in awhile, he wants something crunchy, he has pork rinds (yeah, I know, but for him, it's healthy).

    Well, they are really hard to find, and when I do find them, a small 3 oz. bag is about 3.49. Yikes.

    I was at Family Dollar today, and they had 3 oz. bags of rinds for 1.00. Wow! I grabbed a bunch!

    That's a good price. I swear I've seen them at Aldi before.

    I think it may be a regional thing. Here in the south, you can find them at every gas stations and most grocery stores.

    I am in the south and they are everywhere. i love the Salt and Vinegar ones.

    BTW, not sure how strict the diet is, but I saw someone on TV one time grind some up and use as breading. No idea how it would taste, but....

    They're great as crunchy topping on low-carb dishes. They stay crisp a lot longer than breadcrumbs.

    You'd think they'd be greasy, but actually they are very dry, it's worse than eating saltines. Because they are made with the skin and any fat is cooked off they are pretty much just protein. Men's Health Lists : MensHealth.com

    Around here they are 99c for the big bag. I get them in the local grocery chain that caters more to the ethnic neighborhoods. My husband loves the BBQ ones.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I know they are easier to find in the south--I've seen a lot more of them while travelling in the south. But I can't believe you all can find them for less than a dollar all the time! I wish! I pay well over $3 for each bag. Always. I was so happy to get them for $1 because it just galls me to get such a small amt for so much money.

    I have used them for 'breading' and crumbled on top of things. Works very well. Really makes life easier cooking for dh.

    I also found a really good body cream there ----$1.80 for 16 oz. tub. It is a lot like cetaphil cream (which I love but also hate to pay for----usually get the nn brand). The ingredients on the back are very similar. I have been so DRY this winter, even with a humidifier. This stuff is nice! It just says Vitamin E cream. Smells nice, too. I'm gonna get more jars when I go back to town.

    Find a Hispanic market and look for "chicharrones". Or contact Mission and ask where in your area they sell them. MissionMenus.com :: Mission Pantry

    Dollar Tree has them occasionally here
