|You’d end up with this after popping|
For another, you know that your popcorn’s done when the intervals between the popping kernels get longer. Popping chicharon is a lot quieter than popcorn, you barely hear the chicharon popping (it’s more of a low crackling sound) and you’d have to garner a guess if it’s done.

What you can do is to take it out of the microwave after the bag has expanded and you hear a few minutes of crackling and try to feel if the bits have popped. If not, put it back in the microwave to pop it some more. It took me a few tries, but some minutes later, I was happily munching on warm and crunchy chicharon.
Quite honestly, I thought it would come out a little bit tough. It was a nice surprise to find bite-sized chicharon that’s light, crispy and less-oily than regular chicharon. Chichapop would be perfect for Filipinos abroad who get a hankering for this crunchy Pinoy snack when they’re not in the country. With Chichapop, you can have freshly-popped chicharon anywhere at any time of the day. As long as you have microwave, of course.
Chichapop Microwaveable Chicharon is available in most 7-11 and MiniStop branches all over the metro. 🙂

- If you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
- If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
- Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
