These pork rinds from Epic differentiate from competing products in that they’re oven baked rather than deep fried. The pretty packaging promises 40% less fat as a result, but how do they pan out in the tasting?
In a word – excellently! I didn’t notice any real loss of flavor or enjoyment while working my way through this bag of pork rinds. Also, I didn’t experience a single tooth shattering moment at all. From start to finish the contents where meltingly soft; moreover the sea salt flavoring was just right to offset the slightly fattiness.
At $3.99 – what I paid at Whole Foods on a random whim – these are certainly a premium product price wise; but in my book, a worthwhile product I’d but again.
Note: there are plenty of other flavors in the lineup too, Texas BBQ through Maple Bacon. You can buy these on Amazon here (affiliate link).
