Though I know that salt is a mineral, and that when concentrated through evaporation of a brine, and heated to destroy whatever lurking organizms are roaming around that aren't already destroyed by the crystalline salt, it's still just weird enough to make me say, no thanks.

I know that from a chemical, or geological standpoint, salt is salt, is salt. But I'll still pass on salt derived from human tears. It's a bit too much like meat from a human thigh for me.

Unfortunately, they are out of stock according to the website:

We’re terribly sorry but the humans of Hoxton have been a little too full of joy and the tears have run dry. Regrettably it's taking a little longer than usual to fulfil your orders.

Check out the link--those are supplies for gourmet MONSTERS! Talk to the ones who live under your bed--they are probably already ordering from this site.

(Also, LOL at Andy!!)

my god, this is disgusting! salt is so plentiful around the earth, why would someone want to get it from a glandular reaction of other people? i mean, it can't taste any better than more pure forms right from the earth or sea. in fact, it probably requires more processing to make it safe and edible. with the exception of wiccans and cannibals, who'd buy this stuff?

just gross.


btw, we were going to have leg of youper tonight for dinner, but i hear it's already too "hammy" and stringy...

I prefer vintage tear salt. Like SPICY TEAR GAS FLAVOR - HOUSTON - 1968. I understand there are some good Paris versions, too.

In prehistoric times, such things had not been invented, and they had to induce tears by applying crude methods, like dropping rocks on feet.



And I suppose that if you have a problem with salt intake, you can use substitutes.
