What to do with fruit flavored salt?

I was buying a couple containers of spiced salt and grabbed a fruit flavored salt by mistake. It's flavored with wild blueberries and strawberries...any ideas what to do with it?

    Just thinking out loud. First thing that came to mind was a a brownie stuffed a berry filling, then drizzled with caramel and then salt the caramel. Second was to add it to sweet batters like pancakes, waffles, cookies or cakes. And all this from somebody on a low-carb diet.

      I've never heard of fruit flavored salt, but the minute I saw the post I thought of salting watermelon. I love salt on my watermelon. There are alot of salads out now that include watermelon, feta, etc. There also seems to be a trend toward grilled fruit of all kinds. The salt might be good on grilled peaches or pineapple.
      I also like salt with unsalted butter. Maybe a sliced baguette for part of a breakfast or brunch with unsalted butter and your very strange salt.

        Does it really taste like berries?

          Use it to rim a margarita or salty dog cocktail

            Thanks. Great suggestions! It's super fragrant and does taste like berries. I got it from a market in Barcelona.
