Daboy Backfat Chicharon from the Philippines

Daboy Backfat Chicharon

I busted out an evil laugh when my Pilipina colleague gave me this bag of pork rinds with its big "BACKFAT" label (was that what it was made of, or what it was supposed to give you?). Ohhhh, man. It tasted just like how one would imagine: crispy, full of attached fat, and ridiculously tasty. I'm not sure why the label said that it was "chili-cious" though, as it wasn't even the slightest bit spicy.

Well, fortunately I had enough self-control to eat only two pieces, no matter how much I wanted to gobble up the entire bag. And actually my other meals today were at Thunder Tea Rice and Mushroom Park. So I believe that I earned enough of an allowance to indulge myself briefly in a small bite of this horrendously unhealthy but delicious snack.

Heya been reading you blog for awhile now - great stuff! Pork fat sure is good!

Oh and yeah - its not the fat in food that is unhealthy (as conventional doctor-dom dictates) - its the sugars/carbohydrates:)

chicharones with fat attached are referred to as cracklins, and are a staple in southern US snackfood. they are also on occasion made fresh and added to cornbread.

the things are bloody amazingly tasty.
