I dropped it back after reading the word “Chicharron”. Then my auntie said it is a rival of Marty’s Cracklin and it is more salable. I picked it up again. I read it is a Sukang Paombong no-pork chicharron. I inspected the ingredient list to know more…

Ingredients: 1) dehydrated green peas 2) vegetable oil (palm olein,  palm or coconut oil) 3) tapioca starch 4) dehydrated potatoes seasonings{ 5) natural and artificial flavors 6) sodium diacitate 7) hvp (from soybean) 8) disodium guanylate 9) disodium inosinate 10) silicon dioxide 11) rusk powder 12) aspartame 13) corn oil } 14) iodized salt 15) maltodextrin 16) natural spices 17) monosodium glutamate 18) citric acid and antioxidant

It really has no pork or meat of any kind but the long list is disappointing. Some of them cannot be found in my brain’s dictionary. The term sukang paombong was not included in listing. Maybe it is under the natural and artificial flavors – I thought it was one of the main ingredients.

In aspect of sensory properties, I prefer this over Marty’s. The vinegar flavor has a great impact on overall taste.
