The Price of Salt

The Price of Salt

Can someone tell me why anyone would pay 8 euros for a few ounces of salt? There is this new salt on the market from The Himalayas, with amazing health benefits, in fact I am amazed it can’t raise the dead it is such amazing stuff. It is S-A-L-T! Plain old fashion sodium chloride, with some iron thrown in to add the pinkish color. In fact it isn’t even from the Himalayas, it is from Pakistan, about 160 kms from the Himalayas, but I suppose that is about as close as it is going to get to the great mountains, so technically it is sort of Himalayanish. I mean, it is amazing what a bit of packaging and marketing can do, even salt can be hip, and over priced. I love the net.
