Last trip out we saw a place on I-10 called Don's Specialty Meats. It's on a frontage road on I-10
in Scott, Louisiana. There were signs approaching it, advertising cracklins and boudin.
Needless to say, I had to stop to try real crackling. I've only ever had cheap imitation pork rinds.
I was rewarded with some of the most unhealthy, but incredibly tasty, snack food I've ever had.
It was cajun spiced, crispy, and delicious. I wish I'd bought about 5 more lbs.
I would recommend it to anyone craving a salty-spicy hit of artery clogging fried food.
You can watch them making it, while they serve the fresh stuff non-stop.
I can't recall exactly, but I believe it was around $10/1lb. bag.
Worth every penny.
UPDATE: It's up to $12/1lb. bag. We got some there back in early November on our way west
from the aborted shuttle launch on the 1st of the month. It's still delish, though.
