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.
