Welcome to our review for the Mr Tubs Pork Crackling.
With my British heritage life wouldn’t be the same without pork crackling. With an allergy to nuts the bar snack of choice down the pub was always the pork crackling. I met my husband Dominic while playing pool down our local pub and we would have a drink, play a game of pool and snack on some pork crackling.
16 years on and we may not live in England anymore but we still enjoy the good old pork crackling and it brings us back to the North of England. Today in England the country will be celebrating mother’s day. Because my mum and dad are in Portugal for winter we will celebrate it by going out for a barbeque and then for some dancing.
It will also mark two years since we were out for mothers day when I secretly new I was expecting my daughter. Then in May when it is the Portuguese mothers day I will be celebrating it all over again. This of course is the benefit of being a British Expat!!!
But today I will be giving my mum some of my food blogging goodies as she is mad for her food. One of the things will be some of my pork crackling as she loves it more than me and goes mad for it.
But before I had over one of six tubs I wanted to share with you more about the Mr Tubs Pork Crackling so that you can check it out for yourself.
Six flavours and one order button
You know what I hate when I order items on Amazon? When you have to buy 12 of a certain item and then for each flavour you like you end up having to buy 12 of them. Then if you have a product with 6 flavours (like Mr Tubs) you end up purchasing a quantity of 72 when you only want 6.
Well with Mr Tubs you order the once and you get six different flavours of their pork crackling. Each one has its own unique flavour and therefore you wont get bored. You could take them out in their tubs to picnics, barbeques or even have them as an evening snack while you are watching television.
The flavours of Mr Tubs that you get are:
- Good Old Traditional
- Zingy Salt and Vinegar
- Spicy Madras
- Teasingly Hot Chilli
- Thai Sweet Chilli
- Smokey BBQ
My personal favourite is the Thai Sweet Chilli just because I have always been obsessed with this flavour. It reminds me of tapas night after doing our grocery shopping on a Friday night in England. Dominic would opt for the rotiserrie chicken where as I would always have the Chinese starter pack that got served with the best ever Thai sweet chilli sauce and I would be in food heaven,
I have to confess now that I am a real coward when it comes to heavy spices so I have passed the Madras one to my mother that has a better spice palate than me!

My son Kyle always gets excited about the grocery deliveries we get and the products we get to review. In the old days we had a diet blog and he would do a runner whenever a delivery came in at the thought that he was going to be landed with yet another round of coconut flour or nutty Paleo bars. But now I have his full attention and here is what he had to say about the Smokey BBQ flavour:
“You’re not having any of them they are all mine”
Actually I had to make sure I wrote out this review soon after I received them as in typical 14 year old boy style, blink and they would be eaten!
