Pork Crackling & Beer Advent Calendar 2023
Ok. So you're looking for a new exciting and damn right indulgent advent calendar.
Well my pork loving friend, how about the KING OF ADVENTS? A beer and porky combo. The Pork Crackling & Beer Advent Calendar. It's not the most exciting of names, we'll be honest, but we spent the creative budget on the packaging and we ran dry on porky pun names.
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' letdown.
The Snaffling Pig decided to right that wrong because he’s good like that. The result is this bad boy- 46.8cm tall and 27.2cm wide and 12.6cm deep. You won't be putting this on the mantelpiece.
And CHILLAX, the crackling is good, sealed and fresh until March 2023.
Seeing as the festive period requires that you have a glass of your favourite tipple to hand at all times, this year we've brewed 3 exclusive beers.
A quick note from the Logistics Pig: We've actually had to create a dedicated dispatch centre for this bad boy, so if you order any other porky goodness from our site along with your calendar you'll get two parcels.
There are 12 x 12g pork crackling bags: Low & Slow BBQ, Marvellous Maple and Perfectly Salted. Four of each flavour.
There are 12 x 330ml cans of Snaffling Pig beer: Twisted Tail Pale Ale, Mighty Swine Lager & Wild Hog Helles, Four of each flavour.
This one isn't for piglets: You must be over 18 to make a purchase.
- MIGHTY SWINE LAGER PILSNER-STYLE - Brewed using 100% British ingredients, this pilsner-style lager is crisp, clean and utterly refreshing (ABV 4.0%).
TWISTED TAIL PALE ALE - A perfectly sessionable British-brewed pale ale with an awesome tropical fruit aroma and a satisfyingly bittersweet balance (ABV 4.2%).
WILD HOG HELLES - A British pale organic lager inspired by the Munich Helles style. like a rabbit in lederhosen, it's hoppy and full of character. Hits the piggin' spot (ABV 4.8%).
You can find out about each of our award-winning flavours below:
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.
This one is not for piglets, you have to be over 18 to purchase

And chillax... our products are freshly sealed so they will maintain freshness and AWESOMENESS well past Christmas. Like they'd be hanging around that long anyway. As if.

Delivery & Service

Free on all orders over £40
The Snaffling Pig’s less fun but very organised cousin, The Logistics Pig, dispatches all our items by courier for delivery usually within 1-2 working days (although it can take an extra day or two during peak times of the year). However, rather than keep lots of stock, we cook fresh every day to keep up with you snafflers so delivery can take up to 5 working days.
Your order will be shipped in as few parcels as possible to keep your piggin' shipping costs down, and to reduce the impact on the environment. So if you order multiple bundles and other products in one order, it will most likely come in one parcel. If you require separate parcels for multiple bundles you will need to make another separate order.
We would also advise that you get familiar with our firm but fair policy on returns and refunds.
More than anything, we want to be piggin’ happy with your purchase. If you need anything contact us.
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, sometimes more, sometimes less.
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 (if it's meaty) 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.
