A while back I reviewed the un spiced Mr Trotters Pork Crackling on my other blog and quite enjoyed them so when I got my hands on their new Jalapeño version I was looking forward to seeing what the Mexican twist had added.
Mr Trotters Great British Pork Crackling is made from British pork skin from only the finest British out-door bred pigs and then spiced with Jalapeño.
The press release that came with them suggested that to make them extra special it was worth heating them in a hot oven for a few minutes, so I did just that.
As with the normal version there was a good mix of bigger chunks as well as some smaller ones so you get quite a few individual pieces. They are nice and dry and crispy, putting them in the oven definitely made them a bit crunchier.
The Jalapeño certainly had a bit of a kick, a lot more than I was expecting to be perfectly honest, which was good as usually this sort of thing is done half baked and they have the tiniest amount of chilli seasoning.
The combination is a winner and a 60g bag retails for around £2.00 so they aren’t cheap but they are pretty tasty and the heat level was higher than I was expecting which adds that something little extra to them for chilli heads like me.
