It was our little guy who first spotted Chik’n Skin ni Mang Juan when we were grocery shopping last month at Robinson’s Metro East. We were in the aisle of finger foods and one of our usual buys is the Chicharron ni Mang Juan, which I use to add texture and taste to my monggo recipe. Clearly that deserves a separate blog post. 🙂
When my son flashed the bags of Chik’n Skin ni Mang Juan it was totally a eureka moment for me that I asked him if it comes in bigger bags. There’s none, he said, so we just got ourselves a handful. Needless to say, we didn’t wait to get home to open a bag for each of us. Haha!
For someone who grew up having chicken skin for a food fix, anyone would understand why I got so giddy when I saw that this was readily available in the supermarket. Why, it’s even better that it’s made out of dehydrated peas! 🙂
Jack ‘n Jill made our all-time favorite pinoy snack chicken skin available through their latest, uniquely Filipino snack, Chik’n Skin ni Mang Juan with Suka flavor. Such a delectable treat of fried chicken skin and the sour and spicy kick of vinegar.
Because anything this delightful should be enjoyed down to the last crumb, Mang Juan came up with a word that perfectly describes how to consume a pack of Chik’n Skin ni Mang Juan Suka—“simumot”—completely consuming this pack ‘hanggang sa huling mumo’.
Now, snack lovers don’t have to visit restaurants or food kiosks to enjoy the goodness of chicken skin and suka. The favorite snack infused with vinegar is made available in groceries and supermarkets nationwide.
Whenever the true Pinoy in you starts craving for that irresistible crunchy, sour and spicy taste of chicken skin, be sure to grab a pack of simumot-worthy Chik’n Skin ni Mang Juan Suka.
