Truffled salt

So far, I have only been able to find on line sources for this product. Does anyone know where it may be available locally? I am based in the East Bay but anywhere in the BA is closer than the internet. I would like to perhaps try (or at least eye out) the percentage of ground truffle to sea salt before purchasing. Any other unusual salt blends to recommend? Wasabi, cocoa nib, roasted chestnut, anything like that?

    Bi-Rite on 18th and Guerrero. You can take bart to 16th and Mission and its only four or so blocks from there. They have a few good flavored salts the saffron salt is worth a try. and lots of specialty salts. Maldon is fun.

          They usually have it at the Pasta Shop in Berkeley on Fourth st. Sometimes they have a sample out to try.

              Pasta Shop on 4th in Berkeley and Draeger's in San Mateo. Use it within 6 months or it starts smelling like old mushrooms. (I wonder if freezing it will help.)
