So this reminded me instantly of the Salt Road, back in a time when salt was so pricey that it was actually used as a currency.
However centuries down the line this seems ridiculous; 20 bucks for gourmet salt? Has everyone suddenly become rich? @tfitzsimons tweeted the picture of the wallet-cringing condiment, currently being sold at TSC Signature Store in Beirut Souks.
I don't know about you, but fancy-pansy salt isn't on my Christmas list. I'll take good ol' regular salt for five dollars please.
