A Warm Welcome to you, Fried Pig Skin Lover.

This site will tell you everything you want to know about Pork Scratchings.

Pork Scratchings, Crackling and Rinds, they have a few names depending on where in the world you happen to find them, but we call the Hairy Bar Snacks.

Hairy Bar Snacks is our nickname for pork scratchings. Obviously, we were drunk when we thought that this was a good idea. As a general rule, we don't really eat pork scratchings unless we are at the pub. The pub sells many different types of snacks. Snacks can be found behind the bar. The snacks we like best have a tendency to be a little bit hairy. So, logically, they must be called hairy bar snacks.

In this site, there are sections for pork scratching reviews, news, bag pictures, real images of real scratchings and even a flipping shop. Because we eat scratchings at the pub, we decided a small expansion into pub reviews wouldn't hurt.

The blog/news section is an irregularly updated section with all the latest from the glamorous world of pork scratchings. Due to the paucity of hairy news, there are also a few drinking-related posts.

We're endeavouring to fill this site with as much information as we can find out, but would like to take this opportunity to ask for YOUR HELP. If you find anything that might be of interest to us, please, contact us to let us know. Many people have submitted information, pictures and reviews, and we thank you all.

The pork scratchings shop sells, t-shirts, hats, tops, for men, women, kids & even stuff for your dog. Have a look, you might just find the perfect gift! There's a little bit of history, the different names and types of pork scratchings found throughout the world. The links page has an extensive list of for further reading, including articles and suppliers from across the globe. Please sign up for our newsletter, it might be fun!

Lastly, there's the contact us page, which we would love you to use, please send us some samples, pictures, reviews or information.
