I saw this vegetarian chicharon in magazine I borrowed from my friend. I got a little curious. I bought one to try.
The vegetarian chicharon is product of Liwayway Marketing Corp. The Oishi Marty’s Cracklin’.
It is not made of meat, good for those who hate meat! Contains zero trans fat. The main ingredients I see are green peas, tapioca starch and potatoes.

The price is 6 pesos for 26 gram pack. I like the taste of this vegetarian chicharon. It posses mild saltiness and unique flavor . I cannot compare the flavor with the real chicharon because they are totally different things.
This video emphasize that Marty’s crackling is not made of pig skin. It is made of vegetables instead.
