Marketing scab snacks is a challenge - if you go for genuine (preferably organic) human scabs, you run afoul of opponents of borderline cannibalism and the CDC, with their claims that such human-derived products are too high-risk to contain human pathogens that animal products tend to lack. But if you go for an animal source, you find the flavor just isn't the same?

In terms of commonly-available animals, I've tested bovine-, porcine- and equine-source scabs (forget ovine - too much wool in the way) and I can tell you porcine is the best way to go. It's not the same, but it's got that great chewy crunch and a nice bacony flavor that some find even better, once you acquire the taste! Look for Uncle Pig's Pork Scab Snacks in the brown pouch, coming soon to a register-side impulse-buy display in a quality market near you.

Man. When I clicked to comment, I was going to tell you how gross you were. But I'm sure you'd've known: "kidding."
