When the supermarket hopes that the winter weather and snow fall not just freezes the roads but also your brain…..

Five kilos of road salt sold at E5,99 or 1,20 per kilo as ‘special offer’. Special indeed, as immediately opposite in the same aisle kitchen salt goes for 0,36 per kilo. Even though the kitchen salt is refined and cleaned, it is still two thirds cheaper than the untreated ‘road salt’. Not surprising then that the staff who tried to remove the ice from sidewalk in front of the supermarket were using the kitchen salt, not the salt from their own ‘special offer’.

road salt, 1,20 per kilo

kitchen salt, 0,36 per kilo

no wonder staff used kitchen salt, and not the high-end priced road salt
