Here's to Pork Scratching Advent Calendars! June 11, 2021 21:59

Yep, you read that right. The four greatest words in the English language. Pork Scratchings Advent Calendar. Our greatest achievement. The legacy we will leave this planet with. Before us no such savoury advent delight had ever been imagined. We righted that wrong. 

Snaffling Pig Advent Calendar

The Pork Scratchings Advent Calendar

If you don't know what advent is all about, allow us to enlighten you: 

Advent calendars are great, right? Wonderfully delivering daily countdown-based treats, encouraging early morning snackage, and gleefully throwing normal eating times out of the cardboard window. But, if you're more of a savoury loving swine, they've tended to be a piggin' let down. 

The Snaffling Pig decided to right that wrong, because he’s good like that. 


Why a Pork Scratchings Advent Calendar?

When planning our NPD (New Product Development), we don't do what other companies do. We don't analyse trends and data and we don't carry out vast amounts of market research. We think about what would we LOVE to buy. What would make people say..."DAAAAAMN I need this in my life". What we know we can make really really well and something we would be bloody proud of. Starting with this approach means we think big and not constrained by 'what was done before'. 

So the pork crackling advent was born.

Inside the Pork Scratchings Advent Calendar

Containing 24 windows of utter porky heaven, with 6 flavours including, Pigs in Blankets, Salt ‘N’ Vinegar, Marvellous Maple, Low & Slow BBQ, Black Pepper and Perfectly Salted this MEGA beauty will site pride of place on your mantelpiece. Jog on choccy, this savoury advent calendar is counting down to the most wonderful time of the year. 

But we don’t just leave it there. We also made a gluten free pork crackling advent calendar, containing only our gluten free pork crackling flavours, Salt ‘N’ Vinegar, Low & Slow BBQ and Perfectly Salted.

Pig of Doom Chilli Advent Calendar

A Pig of Doom chilli advent calendar version. Yep 24 windows of Pig of Doom. We want to meet the people who buy this. They fascinate us. A packet of chilli pork snacks every day for a month. We are standing up from our chair right now to salute you legendary souls. Thankfully it’s just for December, the season to indulge. Come January we highly recommend some veggies and water.
