Where to buy popcorn salt?

I've been using the same little can of Morton's popcorn salt for years...the frequency that I make stovetop popcorn or patacones is rare, but it comes in handy! Now that I'm almost out, I haven't been able to find it used to be in the popcorn section, but I've also looked in the salt sections of grocery stores for fine-grained salt but haven't seen anything.

Maybe it's just my local stores that don't stock has anyone seen it lately, in Manhattan or Brooklyn? Even Queens? I don't mind traveling a bit for it since it will last me so long. Oh, and I don't have a food processor nor do I drink coffee (thus own a grinder) so it's much easier for me to buy it...thanks!

      1. If you put regular salt in a blender or spice grinder for a couple of seconds you'll have popcorn salt. It was actually on Good Eats the other night.

        1. Amazon has it... not cheap but if it lasts you a long time, might be worth it.

            It's actually not expensive at all considering what Morton's sells it for on their website ... it never would have occured to me to check Amazon, thanks!
