Found 31st Aug 2011
I love these, very hard to get hold of at the main supermakets sometimes and always expensive...

These are special promotion packs where 1 pack is free in each multipack, usually 5 packs for a £1.

(These are the "proper" scratchings, not that air inflated fluff you can also buy)

edit - In response to first post, this was at Carmarthen PoundLand, but it's pretty much guranteed these are available in all shops

In Carmarthen, although I assume all PoundLands since most of their mainstream stock is available at all of their shops.

I love hairy ones (_;)
did u know an anagram of Pork Scratchings is Thongs Rip Cracks
Pork scratchings are a surprisingly healthy food when consumed in moderation.

PORK SCRATCHINGS

The bar snack we all want to have but are too embarrassed to ask for is actually packed with goodness.

'Two-thirds of all its fat is actually mono and polyunsaturated fats, beneficial for heart health, with 13 per cent of its fat coming from stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that doesn't raise cholesterol levels,'

'Because what you're eating is effectively concentrated collagen from skin, it has an amazingly high protein content to keep you feeling full, and benefits muscle and bone health.'

One 20g bag contains 2g more protein than an egg, or about a fifth of your recommended daily allowance. They also have very little sugar and just 0.3g carbohydrates in a packet.

The main health concern is its salt content, so moderate your consumption.

Lidl have 70g bags for 49p at the moment
I took that from a Mail Online article about surprisingly healthy foods, I wouldn't be embarrassed to ask for them, I'm a pork scratching fiend and I sometimes feel like shouting it from the rooftops, they ooze yum.
Are these real pork scratchings, not the puffed up stuff that's just the fat, not the 'hide' I suppose you'd call it. It's a complete rip when you get the wrong sort.

This is the real deal, hence my comment in the OP

Same here, can't stand that puffy, air filled tosh.

I tried making proper pork scratchings and was surprised how easy and tasty it is.

If you got the tough skin left over from the roasted meat, just take it off with the fat, chop into small pieces, put under grill fat side up for about 5 minutes and let cool and enjoy.
DIY pork scratchings = house stink
I wonder if you could do them with marmite ? now they would be nice

Magic! I'm going up town in a bit so I'll get some. There's no Home Bargains where I am now so this could be my new fix. The Home Bargains ones for 29p (can't remember the brand) are superb, better than the "Pork Scratchings Company" ones they sell in the Great British Beef Festival.

Talking of pork scratchings in moderation, I don't know if he still does it but in Coventry market, the flying saucer thing, there was a butcher who sold scratching loose. I asked my friends if they wanted some and got 5 of us one lb bags and we ate them over the weekend. Maaaan we felt grim for days. It might have been salt poisoning or something.

EDIT AND WARNING: I went into the Poundland today and didn't remember that it said Mr. Porky in this thread and bought some called Pork Crackling and it turns out they're the atrocious puffed up badness, so beware. I'm all sad now. Why is there no clear labelling and legislation for pork scratchings 8(
