|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 I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
