I only see them roaming around public market and I only see them twice a week. Saturdays and Wednesdays – our town public market days. They are carrying a large clear plastic filled with chicharon like product, plastic thrice the size of regular rice sack. On the left hand is a 1.5 L Coke bottle full of chili and vinegar.
It was strange. I have never seen their product in any permanent store establishments. I have never seen it on groceries, sari-sari and supermarkets.
I drove her to town clinic for the third anti-tetanus injection. The clinic is just next to public market and that day was a market day – Wednesday.
I called the vendor and asked what he was selling? He said it was chicharon macaroni. Wow! I thought it was a chicharon baboy or a chicharon bituka. It really looked like a pig small intestines.
How much it cost? Ten pesos per cup. The cup he was using was the bottom of 1.5 L Coke bottle. The height was about 1/4 of the original size.
I bought ten pesos. He put my order in cellophane. He gave another cellophane with vinegar.
It was a chicharon macaroni. I was not able to extract more information. How and where it is made?
I think it is a good chicharon baboy alternative. It might be better than Less-Fat Pork Chicharon.
