No, they're Kosher
I stuff these with ox tongue.

Tongue in cheek. Geddit?!!
Are they pre packed or on a butchers counter ?

Butcher's counter
Nice one, cheers.
Poor pig. Not a veggie or anything but sometimes certain things do make me wonder.
Another example of a product that other supermarkets don't sell. That's why price comparison sites mean nothing. Waitrose is quite easily the best supermarket in the uk.
When I was young, pig cheeks (whole head) were only used in brawn and similar products. How come they are suddenly the "best part of a pig"? Could this have something to do with marketing by TV cooks? Certainly worked for them. Ha ha ha!
Thanks for the heads-up. My dog like pigs cheeks anyway.

These pig cheeks are not the entire side of the face but just the 'spot' of muscle, so quite small. They are extremely lean, delicious and do not resemble brawn. The only reason pig cheek is not more popular is that it takes a long time to cook and that the typical Brit is typified by Gball (post 12). Can't think of any other good quality meat (or low quality) that you can get for £2.99/kg!

Ewwww, I remember seeing these listed as a 'must try' at a Lithuanian restaurant when I was staying in a hotel in London. I can't say that tempted me then and they certainly don't tempt me now!

You stick to your McChicken Nuggets
The cheeks are the best part of any animal - just ask Hannibal Lecter...
Pig cheeks? lol!

Hey the pigs already dead, you may as well eat all of it! I had crispy pigs ears and crubeens last week and they were really nicely done. I've had ox cheek before so think I'll pick some of these up and see what I can do with them, thanks for this one OP, have some heat!

I'll have the bacon (the real best bit of the piggywig)

No it's blended pig's testicles.
People saying ew but eat other parts of the pig are idiots, it's the same exact thing but you've been bred by society to only accept what sounds "normal".

They don't just kill the pig for its cheeks you know, or worse still let them live once they have harvested them :-)
Yuk!
Hot!!! Which cheeks are these?
