Help us #MAKESOMENOISE!

Our porky snacks get people talking, and frankly, if we can get people to chew the fat about the absolute heroes that Global's Make Some Noise support at the same time, maybe even throw in a couple of quid when they shop from us, then we think that's a kind of a pig deal.

So if you don't mind adding a small donation of £2 or more to the Make Some Noise appeal, we'll happily say a pig thank you by offering you free delivery (worth £3.99) off your next purchase after this one*.

More advent calendars than you can shake a piggin' stick at

More advent calendars than you can shake a piggin' stick at

With each year that passes, the demand for our porky snacks to be hidden behind little date-specific cardboard doors increases. And we love that.

Just like the big man in red and his little helpers do, we get working on the next Christmas with our piggin' advent calendars from January each year.

It's a labour of love and ensures that it feels like Christmas every day at Pork Knox. 

But instead of exchanging presents and feeling the repercussions of one too many sprouts, we invent new ways to satisfy festive cravings for crunchy date-enlightenment.

And the fruits of these labours? Regardez-vous below...

Snaffling Pig Pork Crackling Advent Calendar - UPDATED FOR 2020!

Start, end or just celebrate the day with a 8g bag of crackling in the following AWESOME flavours: our super-festive Pigs in Blankets, Low & Slow BBQ, Black Pepper, Salt ‘N’ Vinegar, Marvellous Maple and Perfectly Salted.

Are Pork Scratchings healthy?

Are Pork Scratchings healthy?

Two-thirds of all the fat in a pork scratching is actually mono and polyunsaturated fats, beneficial for heart health, with 13 per cent of its fat coming from stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that doesn't raise cholesterol levels

Are Pork Scratchings good for Keto?

Are Pork Scratchings good for Keto?

Snaffling Pig Pork Scratchings, Pork Crackling and Porky Puffs contain little to no carbohydrates, which makes it a great ketogenic diet snack.

Are Pork Scratchings good for Diabetes / Diabetics?

Are Pork Scratchings good for Diabetes / Diabetics?

Pork scratchings contain very little sugar and so fairly easy on your blood glucose levels since they’re pretty much just protein, fat and salt. We think it's a great snack if you’re low carbing, on a Keto diet or if you just feel a little bit peckish but don’t want to mess around too much with insulin.

Are Pork Scratchings Gluten Free?

Come meet the team. But less of the day job, we share with you the jobs they do behind the scenes to keep the porky wheels greased up and ready for some piggin' action. These are the the UNSUNG HEROES OF PIG. 

Why PIG does warehousing

Why PIG does warehousing

A lot of our peers and fellow foodies wouldn't dream of owning a warehouse. The stress, workload and cost is sometimes too big a burden to worry about. But that doesn't bother us.

The evolution of PIG

The evolution of PIG

It's fair to say, we didn't have all the answers when we started the brand, back in 2015. Launched as Giggling Pig with a more artisan look, we moved to a pink snout, renamed as Snaffling Pig, then pushed the vibrancy before dialing it back to a cleaner look. 

The journey to date

The journey to date

I co-founded Medical Supermarket my first company back in 2010 with Udhi. It's fair to say when we started we had no clue on, well, anything. We just stumbled from one mistake to the next.

Anyone else feel like an imposter? - By Nick

It's a feeling that's been with me all my life, ever since I can remember. I battle with it every single day. I'm scared that one day somebody will realise that I haven't got a clue what I'm doing.

How can you top a porky advent? Easy...just add BEEEEER - by Nick

We launched our first advent 2 years ago and it's been a huge hit since. But our brand is all about pushing the possibities and creating exciting new formats for snacking and so this year, we'd had to go one better for 2018.
