Carolina Country Snacks Pork Rinds, Product Overview
These are flavored pork rinds. They are light and crispy. They mostly have a lot of air in them. The pork rinds are freshly cooked and packaged from Carolina Country’s kitchen. Coming in at less than one gram per serving, they are great alternative snacks for the Paleo, Ketogenic and low carbohydrate diets.
Carolina Country Pork rinds come in three flavors. There is plain, hot barbecue, sweet-mild barbecue and salt and vinegar. Due to the fact that there is a lot of air in them, the package size is only 1.75 ounces. Plain is only 1/5 ounces.

Carolina Country Pork Rinds Price
You can purchase a case of 24 bags of 1.8 ounce pork rinds for $25.00. I was able to obtain a bag of pork rinds for $0.99 at the grocery store. To me, a dollar an ounce is quite a bit of money for food. You mostly pay for air, but this product is supposed to be an occasionally fun treat and not your main sustenance.
My Final Opinion of Carolina Pork Rinds
I tried out the Salt and Vinegar flavor of Carolina Country Snacks Pork Rinds. The texture to me was reminiscent of Cheetos, cardboard and flavored rice cakes. I thought the flavoring was very mild. I could hardly detect the vinegar. I did like that there was a bit of crunch to them and can see how they may jazz up some dishes if you use them as an ingredient.
This was not my favorite ketogenic snack. I will likely not be purchasing them again, unless, I discover some recipe that calls for them that I really want to try. I suppose I could top off some recipes that use croutons, like the broccoli cheese casserole dish that is supposed to include croutons, and replace them with pork rinds. However, I will likely not keep them as a staple in my kitchen.
I would not try using them in place of chips in order to eat guacamole or another ketogenic dip. They were not even similar to chips in the least bit. While they may hold a dip well, there just isn’t much flavor to the pork rinds. I’m not a fan.
