Himalayan pink salt

I've read about the supposed purity and new age it worth the upcharge? Any special characteristics, flavors etc?

    1. Well, it is not from Himalayan for sure. Is it worth the price? I am not sure. Most people say no, but I don't think you will know until you try it.

      1. ah, confirms my suspicions

        1. I give it a hearty "meh". It's pretty if you like to put out a salt cellar for guests to add a little extra salt. But as far as using it in recipes, I don't find a difference in the end result.

          1. For me, I'd prefer how it makes food taste better over spin, hype of having it in my pantry just to be cool.
