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.

  • yahhh.. eating chicharon without the gilt!

  • I actually love this chicharon and the other variant [salt and vinegar, I think]. It’s not expensive at all. Costs around Php5.00 for the smallest pack only.
