Attack the Snack Food Month

February is National Snack Food Month! And yes, you got it … we’re ALL about that! We’re going to take full advantage each day by celebrating all of the pork rind snacking benefits!

Pork rinds. All day. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack.

 

Did you know that pork rinds are paleo-friendly? That’s right, eating like a caveman has never been easier. Each salty, crisp bite of rind heaven is packed full of protein. Rudolph’s Pork skins have zero carbs, giving them a low glycemic index, and only 5 g of fat per serving, over half of that fat is “good fat”.

You’ll never be satisfied with that greasy bag of potato chips again. Whether you’re craving Rudolph’s Original Flavored Pork Rinds, zesty Hot & Spicy flavor, or even whipping up Rudolph’s Chicharrones Quesadillas for the next basketball game, there’s always a snack celebration to make your February epic!

A Big Crunchy Snack for the Big Game

Unless you’re planning on heading to Arizona for the Super Bowl this year, it looks like you might be spending it on your couch. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! As a matter of fact, there are a few benefits to homegating for the Big Game:

1. You can watch the game pants-less. Would the University of Phoenix Stadium let you do the same?

2. You can create an awesome game day menu that rivals any of the food vendors you might see at the stadium (but we do recommend putting your pants back on while you cook).

A little (and easy) preparation goes a long way. Start with Rudolph’s Cheese Bites covered in crushed pork rinds! Follow that up with some easy Beefy Rudolph’s Pork Rind Burgers and some Rudolph’s Peanut Butter Pork Rind Bars and you’re in a pork rind lover’s paradise.

Tailgating … With a Pork Rind Crunch!

It’s estimated that 50 million Americans are proud to call themselves tailgaters. That’s a whole lot of fans in need of food to fuel up for gameday! We’re here to make sure you don’t fumble with your snacking lineup.
 
Is it just coincidence that you eat pig skin while watching the ol’ pigskin being tossed around? At Rudolph’s, we think not! Just in time for the peak of tailgate season, we huddled up to share this list of tailgate trivia sure to get you pumped up for the big game.

It’s Crunch Time:

• 35% of tailgaters are so dedicated to pregame events that they never even enter the stadium.

• 40% of tailgaters start their festivities 5 hours before kickoff and tailgate 6-10 times per season.

• According to a study by the PR Newswire, the best tailgating cities are Baltimore, Denver, Houston, San Diego and Cincinnati.

• 95% of tailgaters actually prepare food at the stadium.

• It’s not uncommon to eat over 3,000 calories at a tailgate, but did you know that pork rinds are a healthier way to add crunch and flavor to your favorite bites? A serving of pork rinds have 0 grams of carbs, 9 grams of protein and only 5 grams of fat.

Like Pork Rinds … Dove Hunting
is a Family Affair

 
This year marks the 50th year that my dad and I have gone dove hunting. And believe me when I say it was just as special this year … as ever.
 
RudolphFoods-DoveHuntingAndPorkRinds

There is no way to explain just how important the opening day of dove hunting season is in Texas – and the opening day of our 50th year hunting together was no exception. For me, it’s about family more so than the actual sport of hunting.
 
Nostalgia hits me every time I see the sun come up over the trees. And the frost … The frost on that Texas grass really is something of an oxymoron, as it happens on just a handful of days throughout the year. At 80 years old, my dad loves reminiscing and bonding with Sarah, my youngest daughter. There aren’t too many opportunities like that anymore so I really take advantage of times like those.
 
It makes me feel lucky to a part of a close-knit Texan family — with such amazing girls that care so deeply about each other and our whole family. How do pork rinds fit into all of this? We are Texas. Rudolph’s and Southern Recipe are at every hunting season, table, cookout and get together. Now it’s your turn. Tell us how you spend time with your pork rind lovin’ family …

5 Reasons Why We Love Truck Drivers


National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is September 14-20. This is the time to slam on the brakes and acknowledge some of the hardest working men and women in America. We’re revving up our pork rind engines to holding a special Dig My Rig Contest to showcase some of these warriors of the road. By voting for your favorite truck you are automatically entered to win a bunch of Rudolph’s Pork Rinds yourself! In the meanwhile, check out some of the reasons why our heroes of the blacktop deserve honks all around.

  • Truck drivers connect us. Trucks deliver roughly 70% of all US commodities (that includes cracklins too). They are the common link between us and the food on our families’ plates.
  • Truck drivers live to work. Ask any truck driver and they will say that trucking is a lifestyle. They know their job is demanding, but even with the long hours and time away from family, they keep trucking because they love to see sights some people may never see in their lifetime.
  • They make straight A’s. These are licensed professionals who are evaluated on their driving, safety and mileage everyday. They are only allowed on the road alone when they have been certified in the mechanics, safety and systems of their rig.
  • Are we there yet? The average person drives up to 40 miles in a day. The average truck driver drives nearly 600 miles a day – that’s 15 times more. You might ask, “are we there yet?,” when a truck driver says, “we’re just getting started!”
  • Truck drivers made it to the silver screen. Truck driving is a huge part of American culture, so no wonder this career has been showcased in several Hollywood hits! Must have movies for truck drivers include Duel, directed by Steven Spielberg, Smokey and the Bandit, starring Burt Reynolds, Breaker! Breaker!, starring Chuck Norris, and many more.

Crunch on some good ol’ Rudolph’s Bold & Spicy BBQ Pork Rinds (if you don’t have ‘em, buy some here) and don’t forget to vote for your fav Dig My Rig truck today.

Secret to Satisfying that Mid-Day Craving.

 
A recent study showed that Americans snack the most between 2 and 5 PM. Some snack for an indulgent treat, others are looking for something to hold them over until dinner … whatever your reason, choose snacks with protein to help keep you from over-eating. The secret is that protein helps keep your stomach feeling fuller longer … that’s why eating Rudolph’s Original Pork Rinds with 9 grams of protein per serving helps crunch your cravings. Rinds have more protein per serving than an egg or peanuts! And as an added bonus, these crunchy rinds have zero carbs and zero trans fats. So snack away, America, with Rudolph’s Pork Rinds.
