Pork Crackling Advent Calendar
After last year's sell out adventure our Advent returns and THIS YEAR we've made the pieces inside and the packets even bigger. We have also commissioned the very talented Allan Deas to draw us a scene which depicts the very craziness of Christmas time.
This year we have 3 different flavour variations:
- Mixed Flavour (containing 24 x 8g packets in 6 flavours: Pigs In Blankets, Low & Slow BBQ, Marvellous Maple, Black Pepper, Salt 'N' Vinegar and Perfectly Salted.)
- Gluten Free version (containing 24 x 8g packets in our gluten free flavours: Perfectly Salted, Low & Slow BBQ and Salt 'N' Vinegar)
- Pig of Doom Version (containing 24 x 8g packets of Pig of Doom Super Hot pork crackling).
If you don't know what this 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. The result is this bad boy- which is a whopping A3 sized.
As you may have guessed, behind each of the windows you'll find a mini bag of awesome flavoured pork crackling. Sadly, none of them will be in the shape of a bell or a Santa. Even SP isn't that clever. But we'd like to think that what they lack in festive shape, they make up in crisp, crunchy loveliness.
There is literally a flavour for everyone and you can find out about each of our award winning flavours below:
Black Pepper - Our Black Pepper flavour is more subtle than some of our porky adventures, but that's its beauty.
Low & Slow BBQ - If you love the wonderful, smokey taste of BBQ than this one is for you.
Marvellous Maple - Inspired by SP's love of a pancake & syrup breakfast, Maple is our first sweeter variety and is something genuinely a bit different. With a lovely sweet/salty balance, it’s still very much suited to accompanying a pint, but we've seen it demolished alongside all sorts of drinks and at all times of day!
Perfectly Salted - Our Perfectly Salted may not be the most flamboyant of flavours, but what it lacks in avante-garde thrills, it more than makes up for in brilliant basics: Crispy, salty awesomeness. Think of it as Team SP’s ever-present holding midfielder- others might have occasional fancier tricks and brighter boots, but this one is always the first name down on the team sheet.
Pig of Doom (Super Hot) - The Pig of Doom is the Snaffling Pig's spice lunatic brother. Granted, he's a bit melodramatic and there's no actual end of world darkness involved with his concoction, but its fair to say these bad boys don't mess about. The heat comes from Bhut Jolokia chilli (aka 'Ghost Chilli'), which is one of the hottest chillies in the world and it's one that keeps on building once snaffled.
Pigs In Blankets - Our limited edition Pigs in Blankets (PiB) variety takes what we see as the best bit of a Turkey dinner, aka the porky bit, and pays homage to it the form of some rather excellent crackling, housed in one of our gift jars. On top of it's lovely flavour, PiB is a particular favourite as it's adding the essence of bacon-wrapped pork to a porky snack. Yup -Pig to the power of 3!
Salt ‘N’ Vinegar - Our Salt 'N' Vinegar crackling is a particular favourite at Snaffling Pig HQ and is almost universally loved when tried. As you may have gathered, we're big on bold flavour, so you'll be in no doubt what you're snaffling; this one is as tangy as it is moorish.
In 2016, the judges awarded our Black Pepper and Perfectly Salted stars in the Great Taste Awards.
In 2017, the judges awarded our Salt 'N' Vinegar and Marvellous Maple stars in the Great Taste Awards.
In 2018, the judges awarded our Low & Slow BBQ a star in the Great Taste Awards.

For our general T&Cs click here.
PORKY SNACKS: If kept air tight, our crackling should be suitably awesome up until it's best before date, which should typically be around 16 weeks from purchase.
If you dive in regularly, we'd recommend eating it up within 4 weeks - but this shouldn't be too tricky, because well, you're already diving in regularly.
As with any food product, store in a cool, dry place away from bright light and vegetarians in order to keep the swines at their best.
BOOZE: Both our beer & cider is best served coooold.
If you have any product related questions, please contact us.
Since day one we’ve made a point of being as open and honest as possible with our customers- calling a spade, a piggin’ spade, and all that. That’s why we’ve created this page of FAQ delight in order to give you as much info about our porky venture as you need.
