Two years after Oishi came out with the popular vegetarian chicharon, Marty’s Cracklin’, Jack n’ Jill finally came out with their own version which I got to try while we were in Tagaytay last March.
There were two variants, espesyal suka’t sili (special vinegar with chili) and sukang paombong (palm vinegar).
espesyal suka’t sili
This variant had a different vinegar flavor which was milder and wasn’t spicy at all.
Of the two variants I liked the red one with special vinegar and chili more. The shape and texture was similar to Marty’s but there was a more intense vinegar flavor that packed a punch. I also liked the nice kick from the chili. It wasn’t too spicy, just right for me.
In my store I sell both Chicharron ni Mang Juan and Marty’s in all their variants. Each product has their own fans. Some think Marty’s salt and vinegar is too sour and prefer the plain salted while others look for a more sour veggie chicharon and buy Mang Juan’s suka’t sili. Marty’s recently came out with a spicy variant that burns my tongue. It’s so, so, spicy I can’t believe there are customers who love it. To each his own I guess.
