Has your salt gone past its best before date?
Who put the expiry date on my salt?
I recently noticed that we had acquired pink Himalayan salt for half price. I was alerted to this by the pink ‘take home and enjoy tonight’ sticker covering the label.
The reason for the discount was remarkable. The salt would soon be past its best before date.
Given that this inert rock salt was over a hundred million years old, the notion that it could expire after sitting on a supermarket shelf seemed patently absurd.
What can one gain from this?
First of all, if you are in the market for salt, go to the grocery store. Check the dates on the labels, then wait.
Might it be a good idea to reexamine the rules, what they do and who they are for?
It’s like the old saying goes:
Fart in the dark to catch a fox.
