WOW, these things are SO flavorful and addicting!  I grew up in a traditional Filipino household so I’ve had my share of chicharrones, but these are like none I’ve ever tasted.  They are so light and pillowy and they practically melt in your mouth to form a sticky, caramelly substance that you have to pick out from between your teeth.  Absolutely amazing!  I quickly ate an entire bag in one sitting and could have easily devoured a couple more bags afterward.  I can taste them in my mouth as I write this – they’re THAT good!
