If you love Hog Head Souse; you , your parents or your grandparents are from a southern region in America. Hog Head Souse s so good - I can eat a pound a day. I found a meat store who get some of their meat products from Chicago. I get a pound, finely cut; and eat it up almost in a day. Now that I'm talking about it - I think I'll be visiting this store this weekend!!! If anyone knows, Once you check the menu - could you post the Nutrition Value??
