Pork Rind Appreciation Day – Can YOU Sack the Quarterback?!

The big game is fast-approaching, y’all! Do YOU have your Super Bowl plans in place?! Never mind your PLANS…what about your SNACKS?! Pork rind, anyone?

Let me let you in on a fun little tidbit: Super Bowl Sunday is also Pork Rind Appreciation Day! And in order to celebrate, Rudolph Foods sent me a few bags of their fantastic pork rinds – their Original flavor, their Bold & Spicy flavor, and also their Bold & Spicy BBQ flavor. Pork rinds for days, y’all!


Just like they did last year for Pork Rind Appreciation Day, matched with charitable support, Rudolph Foods will again support the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides medical and financial assistance to former National Football League (NFL) players in dire need. In response, Rudolph Foods is teaming up with Hall of Famer Bobby Bell to raise money and awareness to support the Gridiron Greats through the annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day campaign!

That means between now and the big game, a portion of each purchase of all Rudolph Foods branded products, including Rudolph’s, Southern Recipe, Pepe’s Snacks and Lee’s Pig Skins, will support the organization’s assistance fund. YOU will also have a chance to play Sack the Quarterback, with NFL Hall of Famer Bobby Bell for a chance to win $3,500 and a year’s supply of pork rinds. Come on, how awesome would that be?! (CLICK HERE to play!)

At any rate, when I’m done playing Sack the Quarterback and I’m waiting on the Super Bowl to start, I still have my pork rinds! Did I mention that they’re gluten-free, too?! And, although Rudolph’s Pork Rinds can be eaten by themselves (they’re THAT good) I like to add a little bit of fun to mine.


I chose some French Onion Dip for the Original flavor, some Babybel Cheese for the Bold & Spicy BBQ flavor, and some Queso for the Bold & Spicy flavor. YUM!


On a side note, paper bags (or SACKS – see what I did there?!) are fantastic to use for holding pork rinds! And chips, and trail mix, and a variety of other things! And if you have guests at your Super Bowl gathering, they can each have a bag or two for their snacks! Super cost-effective, too.


Aren’t you hungry for pork rinds now?! And ready for the Super Bowl! 

What’s your favorite go-to game day snack? Do tell!

  1. I am not sure if I ever tried these….What a great way to support the former NFL communities. I like that everyone has so many different ideas for game day snacks.

  2. Pork rinds are one of my husbands faves. We don’t do anything for game days, but this could be fun to do for him for movie nights or just to munch on.

  3. I had NO idea that SuperBowl Sunday was pork rind appreciation day! I can’t remember the last time I had them actually! It’s a little sad this year that my Seahawks aren’t in it again, but I’m sure I’ll still watch a bit.

  4. My husband and i like pork rinds one way he likes them is cooked with red hot salsa and beans.I like them fresh out of the bag.But there are many ways to enjoy them,thanks for all the great recipes you post on Facebook.
