Pork rinds are the ideal terrible snack. They’re puffy, so you can eat 20 without realizing what you’ve done; they’re a touch savory; and they have that irresistible slight saltiness, making you crave just one more. Normally relegated to road trip trash snack status, pork rinds have earned the honor they deserve as a staple menu item at Lindberg’s Tavern (318 W. Commercial St., Springfield; 417-868-8900). These puppies go from an idea in your head to a still-poppin’ plate of cracklings sitting before you in less than five minutes, no joke, so you don’t have time to second-guess your decision. Lindberg’s rinds have a slightly smoky bacon note to them and are served with hot sauce and a cool-and-creamy green tomato salsa, which lift them just a little above the neon yellow bag you’d grab at your local Kum & Go, but just a little. That trashy snackiness is half the fun.
