I was at a farmers market on Saturday and I saw “gourmet” salt being sold for $7 for 1.5 ounce.
I believe you can buy a whole pound of salt at the supermarket for less than a dollar, which means that the SWPL salt is at least 70 times as expensive as regular supermarket salt.
I am almost certain that in a blind taste test, SWPLs would not be able to tell the difference between food cooked with SWPL salt and food cooked with regular poor-people salt.
I also believe that there is a high correlation between people who buy ridiculously overpriced SWPL salt and people who will vote for Hillary Clinton and who HATE Donald Trump. Trump supporters used the economical supermarket salt.
