National Pork Rind Apprecation Day

February 13

National Pork Rind Appreciation in Cochrane Alberta

Pork Rind Appreciation Day started in 2011 when Rudolph Foods (the largest manufacturer of Pork Rinds) declared the day a National Day.   It is celebrated on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to” Always the Holiday“, here are some fun facts about pork rinds:

  • Nutritionally, pork rinds contain 9 grams of fat, 17 grams of protein and contain no carbohydrates.
  • In Brazil, pork rinds are called torresmo.
  • Thailand’s version of pork rinds are called khaep mu.
  • The Mexican variety of pork rinds are known as chicharrons.
  • Westminster, Ohio, with a population 300, is known as the ”Pork Rind Capital of the World.”

The pork rind snacks from The Butchery Block are made in house with all natural ingredients.  They make 3 different flavors,  regular, salt & pepper and cajun.  Did you know that pork finds have no carbs so they make an ideal keto diet snack?  Pick up a couple bags for the weekend as you enjoy the game!
