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.

Add a Little Crunch to Your Holidays!

Is your Ho, Ho, Ho turning into Ho, Ho, Hum? Then we’ve got a few tips to put a little crunch back into your Holidays.
1. Skip the string of popcorn around the tree. Beef it up (or should we say, pork it up) with a string of Rudolph’s Original Pork Rinds. For added color, alternate every other rind with a Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds. Just be aware that Santa may oblige your decorations while visiting.

2. The stockings are hung by the chimney with care? Not if you stuff them with assorted OnYums, Rudolph’s Cracklins and our newest Cheesy Jalapeño Curls. Save the fuzzy socks and this year make your stockings man-sized!

3. Leaving cookies for Santa is so 1800’s. Leave a plate of Rudolph’s Chocolate Covered Pork Rinds and the old Jolly One just might give you what you have been wishing for … Rudolph’s Pork Rind Pellets! There’s nothing fresher than popping your own rinds Christmas morning!


chocolatecoveredporkrinds Add a Little Crunch to Your Holidays!

  • 1 bag of Rudolph’s Original Pork Rinds
  • 12 oz. of your favorite premium chocolate chips


Set up a double boiler: Heat a large saucepan filled with water over high heat; once it boils, reduce heat to a simmer. Set a heat resistant bowl on top of the simmering water. Add your chocolate and stir until completely melted.

Cover two sheet pans with wax paper. Dip each Rudolph’s Pork Rind into the melted chocolate, turning if necessary to coat the rinds on all sides. Shake well to remove extra chocolate, and transfer to the lined sheet pan. Repeat with entire bag of Rudolph’s Pork Rinds.

Rudolph’s Hot & Spicy Pork Rind Stuffing


1 3.75 oz bag of Rudolph’s Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds

10 slices of crusty white bread

2 Tbsp. Butter

1/2 large Onion, finely chopped

1 stalk Celery, finely chopped

1 Egg, lightly beaten

1 cup Chicken broth

2 tsp Garlic powder

Allow bread to sit for roughly 24 hours to become stale and crusty. Preheat oven to 325°F. Crush the bread and Rudolph’s Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds with a rolling pin. Place crumbs into a large mixing bowl. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and cook onion and celery until soft and golden brown. Remove from heat and let sit. Mix the egg and chicken broth into your bread and pork rind crumbs. The mixture should be moist but not mushy. Mix in the onion and celery and toss. Press the mixture into a lightly greased baking dish. Bake 30-40 minutes in your preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
*Note for less of a kick, use Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds.
