At 49p for a 60g bag of nice pork scratchings, you really can't go wrong.
It's common to pay around a pound for a bag of scratchings.
So, 49p is about half the price of other similar-sized bags that are commonly available from British supermarkets.
49p is even less than half the price, compared to the price of a bag from a convenience store.
You may pay more for pork scratchings from the pub
Obviously you may pay more for pork scratchings from the pub. Just like paying more for a pint of beer. But this means nothing.
I have never paid £3.80 for a pint of beer from my local pub. Yes, the pint may cost £3.80 but I'm not just paying for the beer. I'm pretty frugal, but a pint from the pub has never seemed like an expense. I'm paying a bit for the beer, and a bit for the location, heating, lighting, convenience, atmosphere etc.
So, scratchings from the pub, expect to pay at least a pound and often more. Rarely does the price of a bag of scratchings reach the giddy heights of two pounds.
Gastro Pubs may cost even more
Because Gastro pubs will often sell scratchings from a jar, often from Snaffling Pig. You'll get a portion for some money. This may cost more.
Excellent Value Outlier
I recenly visited 'The Olde Mitre' pub in London. They sold scratchings from a jar. It was £2 per portion. I received a plate full. They were amazing. Excellent value.
Jay's Pork Scratchings Review
We reviewed these scratchings back in August 2008! Click here to read the review.
Update: Even Better Value!
If you are buying in bulk, then we have found an even better value offering of Jay's Pork Scratchings from Star Bargains online shop.
They are 50p per bag or 3 for £1.00! That's just 33p per bag.
Shipping is free if you spent over £40. So that's easy, you just need to buy 120 bags to save the £6.00 shipping cost. Sweet!
Looks like Tesco once sold Jay's Pork Scratchings
This is a 6 x 15g bag multipack. Or as we like to call it, one bag annoyingly split into 6 little bags!
