Mergers suck. No matter how exciting it seems, I think they just suck.

Are Coke and Pepsi merging?

That name has been taken.  There can be no other 'Poke'.  I won't allow it.

Why is it that so many companies are touting their use of sea salt these days, as if it's healthier? Doesn't all salt come from the sea?

I use both sea and Kosher salts...but yes, you're right, they all came from a sea or ocean at some point before they reached the shaker.

I know of the salt mines but originally, that salt came from a ocean. All salt is sea salt.

I took a look at that link and the very first sentence needs some work.

"Salt is one of the few useful and abundant minerals on earth."

So there are only a few useful minerals on earth?     :o

Did you know that under the city of Detroit (and the great lakes) is one of the largest, if not THE largest, salt deposits in the world?

I saw that wasabi mix at Aldi's last week when my wife and I were there. I was wondering if it was any good. Thanks for the tip.    :thumbs:

That sounds good Mac!

I just checked and Amazon sells 'em.

They even have BBQ flavor.

Adobo is the best!!!


Used to get them at the little Korean grocer that sold me kimchi and 'cooking' wine (soju) for less than a buck a bag. Now I depend on Amazon for just about everything I can no longer find locally.
