So, you want to review a bag of Pork Scratchings? well here's how to do it...

Remember to assess everything together, in the round. For example, a small very salty bag is OK, but a big very salty bag might not be so nice towards the end! And remember to be creative, We know there's not too much you can say about pig skin, fat and salt, but after a while you'll start to notice subtle differences, some of which might be a little odd, so write them down!


  1. The purchase
    1. Where did you get the scratchings? Was it a Pub? if so, where? The full address and web links if possible.
    2. Are they 'in date'
