The Doctors say Pork Rinds are a great snack.

I had to laugh this morning.. Is this retaliation for Dr. Oz's dissing of
those pork rinds yesterday?

Two best snacks at a convenience store: Jerky and porkrinds.

I don't watch either of those shows, but I fully agree with what the Doctors said - as long as you're careful about the sugar content in the jerky!

I have never seen jerky that isn't highish in carbs. What do you people eat? I mean like 6 grams per serving! That is insane.

"The Doctors" is a television show? Yikes. Thanking the gods again I don't have to participate in modern American popular culture!

In comparison to chip type snacks & candy 6 grams of carbs is a good choice (convenience store!). Missing out on pop culture......ahhh I get it now!

It's also very easy to make your own jerky. We love it. Come to think of it...haven't had it in a while! Need to make some more!

I've decided thata jerky makes me sick. I love the taste but theres just something about it for some reason.

I love hot and spicy pork rinds when i crave "chips" or I've ran out of carbs to eat for the day LOL!!

I love leftover fajita steak and chicken with mont. jack cheese, sour cream and salsa! I'm thinking of making brisket nachos tonight. I also have used pulled pork. All is good!

Target's Market Pantry has a good jerky too. I am diabetic and it does not raise my blood sugar or scale number. Yum. Great go to snack for me and my family.

I make lots of my own jerky, it is really easy, i like high mtn seasonings, I cut way back on the cure they say to use, (because it makes me sort or ill.) If you do that be sure to refrigerate and or freeze it.(treat it like a fresh meat product)

pork rinds and Parmesan in food processor make great zero carb breading.. egg binder is also allowed.
