Pork Rind Appreciation Day is on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, 2015. Matched each year with charitable support, Rudolph Foods will again support the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides medical and financial assistance to former National Football League (NFL) players in dire need. In response, Rudolph Foods is teaming up with Hall of Famer Bobby Bell to raise money and awareness to support the Gridiron Greats through the annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day campaign.
Between now and the big game, a portion of each purchase of all Rudolph Foods branded products, including Rudolph’s, Southern Recipe, Pepe’s Snacks and Lee’s Pig Skins, will support the organization’s assistance fund. You will also have a chance to play Sack the Quarterback, with NFL Hall of Famer Bobby Bell for a chance to win $3,500 and a year’s supply of pork rinds. I had a chance to try out some pork rinds courtesy of Rudolph Foods, and they were surprisingly better than I expected (I'm not always a fan of salty snacks). These were a hit at the party I brought them to as well.
Until the big game day, fans can play Sack the Quarterback at PorkRindDay.com where they will be invited to “sack the quarterback” by hitting the ‘Sack Now’ button, properly timing it for a successful tackle by Bobby Bell. You can try to sack the player as many times per day as they’d like, although they will only be entered to win the prize once per day. Fans can increase their chance of winning by playing every day and sharing the game with friends.
