business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Dallas Morning News reports on how one of the categories seeing the most growth in the low-carb segment is pork rinds.

"While grocery sales of low-carb products have jumped by more than 300 percent since 2000, few snacks have caught on as well as pork rinds - those deep-fried crunchies made from a pig's paunch," the paper writes. In fact, according to Information Resources Inc. (IRI), pork rinds posted the largest gains among the 13 most popular low-carb foods - enough so that there are more than 140 companies selling pork rinds in the US today.

Have to be honest. "Deep-fried crunchies made from a pig's paunch" just isn’t the kind of phrase that turns us on.
