I was in the Vallaria supermarket in Palmdale, Ca, where they selling the biggest pieces of pork skin I had even seen.  I bought one: there were bigger pieces for sale but why be greedy?

On the wrapper it said “chicharron delgado en bolsa.”  My knowledge of Spanish edges towards the nonexistent: I knew that chicharron was pig skin, but as for “delgado en bolas” – I suspected this might be some ancient or at least highly specialized way of cooking pig skin.

Now, of course, like all you Spanish speakers, I know that "delgado" simply means thin and “en bolsa” means in a bag – which is accurate enough but somehow it sounded better before I knew what it meant.
