Serves 10. 4.2 net gram of carbohydrate per serving.

This is considered an Atkins original, low carb all the way, but pork rinds? Who is brave enough to test this? This isn't paleo by a long shot, but interesting nonetheless....


  1. Hmmm... I'm adventurous about my food, but I don't know about this one, sweet pea.

    I think I only like pork rinds straight outta the bag, preferably with a icy cold beer alongside.

  2. What kind of oil are pork rinds fried in? If they are fried in cottonseed or any other kind of seed or vegetable oil they are not Paleo. Does anyone have an answer? I luv em but I wonder ...
