KARNE LITSON KAWALI CHIPS: PROUDLY PINOY


Hi dear readers... I will let you in on a little secret.  I grew up in Malabon, where you can find a lot of Pinoy sitsirya.  Chicharon, kropek, shing-a-ling, fish cracker to name a few. Even paros, a shellfish variant abundantly sold in the market, was considered sitsirya, being peddled like taho in the afternoon. LOL!  Mrs.Wise secret >> I like eating my Malabon sitsirya with kaning lamig (old rice).  Call me weird, but that was my food trip before!

And talking about Pinoy food... are you a momshie like me who is always on the look out for alternative snacks for your family?  Not a junk food, but something that is quite filling.  Then I have a NEW discovery that you will like!


KARNE LITSON KAWALI CHIPS:  MY NEW DISCOVERY

My friend Tanya, sent me these Karne Litson Kawali Chips. At first glance, they looked sosyal!  Resealable packaging, complete with expiry dates.  What caught my attention -- "made with real meat and no preservatives"!  There are variants that are "Keto approved" -- perfect for dieters.



THE FIRST BITE:

The "lechon kawali" chips are deliciously crispy.  Because the pieces are thinly sliced, it is not too overwhelming, especially for someone like me that takes pork in moderation. I enjoyed it because it is not too salty like the ordinary chicharon.  


WHY I LIKED IT:

It's been raining non-stop as I was writing this article. Ergo, I was stuck at home, can't go out to do the grocery. I decided to try the lechon kawali chips for dinner.  And it worked. Perfect with hot rice and a few slices of home grown tomatoes.  



Weekend arrived, and the rain hasn't stopped. So we decided to just to just stay at home, watch our favorite TV series,  and enjoy (again)  the lechon kawali chips, this time with beer!  




And of course, I like to support Philippine-made products. Why buy those imported chips when you can enjoy one that is locally made  :)



A WORD OF ADVICE:

This snack could be addicting hehehe.  Try at your own risk!  Because I am now completely hooked :)

So I guess, I will just wait for the rain to stop, and I will go out and buy myself some more. Karne Litson Kawali Chips are available at the following outlets:

Litson Kawali Chips has six flavors -- Original and Roasted Chili  (Keto-friendly), Salted Egg, Sour Cream and Onion, Chili Barbecur and Wasabi. Available at different bazaars and at the SM Snack Exchange.
