Black Country Snacks, Big Bag Crunch Jalepeno Review

Hairy Bar Snack Review:

The Bag

This is probably the biggest bag of pork crunch currently available in the UK. It has the air of an American bag of ‘chips’ about it. 80g of pork crunch is a large sitting for one person or a regular sitting for 3 people.

The Review

There is almost no smell to pork crunch in this bag, there is a very slight Jalapeno smell, nothing bacony nothing fishy.

There are loads (80g) of big light and puffy pieces. They are all very light in colour with an added orangy/brown flavouring dust over all the pieces. They have a nice light and crunchy bite, not gluey.

The Jalapeno flavour is very good. So often we note that the Jalapeno flavour seems green and bitter and raw rather than warm and smokey and spicy. These fall into the latter category which is nice. The heat from the chilli is hotter than expected. I have a fairly high chilli tolerance, so bear this in mind.

Perfectly salted, not too little at the beginning and too much at the end.

We always like a few undercooked pieces, small curlers to make a pleasant change in a bag of massive puffers. variety is the spice of life which is why normal pork scratchings are amazing.

This bag is really too big for a single one person sitting, but I persevere in the name of research!

Towards the end, I look forward to the usual small amount of dust and bits, but am shocked. There’s more dust and bits at the bottom of this bag, than I have ever seen in a single bag. Granted we began with a big bag in the first place but this is unusual. Usually, the dust is a sign of a lot of disruption & movement in transit. This bag is nearing its best before date, so maybe they have been travelling around the country during lockdown looking for a receptive retailer.

There must be around 40 or 50 very large pinches of dust (see picture). The dust is slightly saltier and a bit hotter than the rest of the bag. A strange end to a really nice bag of pork crunch.
