Pork rind is a chunk of deep–fried pork
fat. The result is a sort of yellowish abstract fluff. They are generally found in bags similar to that of potato chips
, and are also covered in salt
and various spices
. They are sort of like popcorn
, but made of fat.
Pork rinds have a respectable crispy texture, but their flavor leaves much to be desired. Additionally, pork rinds are extremely high in fat and sodium, which are generally regarded as negative properties.
