Ray Gray Pork Crackling with Apple Sauce Dip (Makro)
I have not seen pork scratchings sold with apple sauce before, and I do have to say that it seemed a rather nice idea. When I opened the packet and tipped out the contents I was a little disappointed that there didn’t seem to be too many pork scratchings in the bag.
Tucking in I found that these were the real deal, being impressively good quality pork scratchings. They had a lovely full flavour, meaty but with a good balance of salt. Texture wise they have a very strong crunch in places, but as with all pork scratchings a nice mix of textures. I wasn’t that fussed by the apple sauce, this is not to say that it was bad in anyway, in fact upon tasting it is sweet and pleasant. It is just that I couldn’t get into the habit of dipping the pieces into the sauce, they are tasty enough without it. A good quality snack, but I would have preferred the space taken up by the dip, to be replaced with more pork scratchings in the bag!
