Meet the Crackie, a cross between a chocolate-chip cookie and a sack of pork rinds
Just when Toronto’s preoccupation with gimmicky hybrid foods seemed to be waning a little, this happens. Porchetta and Co., the pork-obsessed sandwich hut on Dundas West, has debuted a meaty confection called the Crackie: a chocolate-chip cookie infused with flakes of rendered pig skin (i.e. crackling). So far, the cookie has caused a bit of a stir on Twitter, proving that Torontonians, like New Yorkers, aren’t the type to let minor food-safety debacles (mass-poisonings, say, or rodent infestations) interfere with their love for slash-y snacks. Those who’d like to get a sense of the Crackie’s interests and temperament before committing to a three-buck purchase can follow the cookie’s personal Twitter account, which exists.

It sounds like you are inferring that Porchetta and Co has food safety issues, which the certainly do not. WTF
My name is Nick auf der Mauer and I agree w the previous comment. What relevance does mentioning other business’s negativities have anything to do w my business or my new product? If you are going to introduce people to something/someone would it not be fair to do so in a neutral light? PLUS we are giving a portion of the proceeds to global food charities (10%) Hence the 2.95 price tag. Come on Toronto Life! What gives?
Completely agree, this needs to be changed immediately. BTW Nick love the work you guys do. Keep up the great work!
