Chicharon is pork crackling.It is crunchy and derived usually from pork skin.It is also taken from the innards of pork thus chicharon bulaklak .I usually purchase some of this from Lapid's.

My dad always says "pang-pa-bata" or something like that everytime we buy chicharon bulaklak from the filipino market. It means youthful or something like that right? Anyways, it's yummy. But I do feel my arteries clogging from all that grease. Hahahahahaha. I wouldn't turn it down though. I'll just make sure to run and do some HUGE miles after (or even before). Don't want any of that grease getting stuck in any of my arteries. I'm too young for heart attacks. =)
