The Hairy Bar Snacks Letters Page
We get loads and loads of emails from fans of the humble pork scratching.
It's probably because there are very few outlets for these types of 'ramblings'. However we sometimes get emails from people who seem to have missed the point.
Everyone knows that this website reviews pork scratchings and reviews pubs that sell pork scratchings. We sell pork scratchings from our shop page via third party sources such as amazon and ebay..
We also show pictures of real pork scratchings and pork scratching bags. There are a few other bits and bobs, but we are sure you get the idea.
How can so many people get this so terribly wrong (if you know, let us know).

Review: I purchased these pork scratchings at a pub I used to frequent, usually unbelievably inebriated. The barmaid as I recall, had enormous norks and my memory of their unfettled exuberance whilst sozzled on West Country cider leads me to leave this review. One night, after consuming at least 10 pints of fermented apple juice rocket fuel I decided upon a physical assault of the stomach, by ordering and then consuming 10 packets of said pork scratchings. What happened next beggars belief. My next waking moment was in hospital, my stomach being pumped, the busty barwench by my side...I went on to marry her and we have 4 very well fed children who exist purely on pork scratchings and breast milk...

Review: i do not like to complain, but i have eaten the butchers traditional for years now, (i have strong teeth lol) and just lately they seem to be lacking in something, ie salt, and also you seem to be over cooking them, at one time i could crunch and chew, now its just crunch, a bit bland really, plus you dont put the salty bits in, you know, the bits that gathered in the bottom of the bag,scratchings are not out of date, just lacking, ...sorry

Query: i would like to inform you of my dissatisfaction with your product on my last purchase i always buy you pork scratchings and i am normally very happy with your product but on my last buy i open the packet to find there was no substance to the food and only a mixture of soft crumbs which i didn't dare eat as i believe it wasn't healthy to consume i look forward to hearing from you.

Query: complaint: i have been buying 2 bags of your pork scratching from londis on abbotsbury road for the last year, every single day. the last 10 or so bags i have got have been covered in hair. im not sure if its a fault with the machine or just not shaved properly. Because they are suppose to be hair free. like your advert says. false advertisement. And i have a picture that i could show you? thank you.

Query: I have taken the crackling back to Tesco's where I have today purchased them, I feel sick,and a tingling in my throat.
The apple sauce was pierced obviously from the crackling, and the crackling was soft and damp, awfull.
What would these have been like by the out of date stamp December, I hate to think.
I think while they Tesco's are taking it up with you they should come of the shelfs.
Been adviced to go to the doctors, as I am feeling ill, only ate 2, and did not try the apple sauce,as it was pierced.

Query: Dear Mr Church, Further to our telephone conversation, I confirm the following:
I bought a packet of Pork Scratchings today (13/08/2011) from the Hoop Public House in Stock, Essex, which were hairy and very hard.
They were so hard that I have broken in half one of my teeth, one of the rear molars. I will send the empty packet to you over the next few days.
Hopefully you will reinburse my dental charges for the repairs to my tooth.

Query: Dear Sirs and Madams, I would like to ask if it is possible to order some packs of "Knabbelspek", sended by post to me. We like it very much and in earlier years we bought it a lot of times in your supermarkets in Zandvoort / Vogelenzang. We donīt come so much time to the Netherlands (we live in Germany), so I want you to tell me, if it would be possible to send 4 or 5 packs per post and what cost would be.
Thanks for your friendly answer.
