Ryan Farr's healthy chicharrones - “Crunchy crack-in-a-bag”?

rworange | Apr 15, 200909:14 AM     65

I was amused to see bags of fried pork rinds at Fatted Calf's Napa store ... the upscaling of the snack is what I found funny.

Anyway, I breifly mentioned it in a trip report and there was an enthusiastic chowhound reply, so I thought I'd pull it out as a tip for fans. I haven't tried them yet.

Here are where they are sold in addition to Fatted Calf. FC doesn't make these.

They are fried in "healthy rice bran oil" and are from local upscale pigs, Devil’s Gulch Ranch and Niman Ranch. They contain natural pork, sea salt, cane sugar, and chiles. The crack quote is from Tablehopper.

Does 4505meats sell anything else? Are they planning to sell anything else?
