Here’s one that I was highly skeptical about: microwaveable pork rinds. You put these things in the microwave like a bag of popcorn, and it “pops” pork rinds. It’s fucking forbidden sorcery if you ask me. But I’ve been known to play miniature golf with The Devil himself, so I decided to give them a try.
I put these things the microwave, waited, opened the door, and the flat little bag was now puffed up and blessed with full sized pork rinds. “Holy shit!” I said to absolutely nobody. I looked around to see if Penn & Teller where hiding out and laughing at me behind my back. But apparently this was for real! I’d say this is the closest thing to a miracle that you can get. Step aside Jesus, you may have turned water into wine, but I turned a flat bag of little bacon curls into a puffy bag of fluffy pork skins. Call me when you can turn oregano into some dro, k?
And it just kept getting better. These things were good! And I can honestly say I like them better than your average “archaic pre-puffed” pork rinds. They didn’t have that oogie factory/chemically smell and taste to them. Now I’m not really a fan of regular pork rinds… those things taste like porky hell. But SPICY pork rinds are awesome because it’s like eating hot and spicy air chips with a hint of pork. The Lowrey’s Microwaveable Pork Rinds were nice and spicy… although I’d like to see a flavor of these called Ultra-Spicy Thunder Dome Annihilation with at least 250,000 Scoville units.
So if you want to ride the dragon of the future and be able to stock up on tasty pork rinds without taking up too much space in your pantry… go get you some Lowrey’s.
