Is ‘fine’ seasalt out of fashion?

aurora seasalt 'fine' Today, we bicycled to 4 different supermarkets, in search of “fine” seasalt. Aurora is the brand we prefer and until now, we have never had a problem getting it.

Suddenly, it appears that the only seasalt available is “coarse”. There were boxes and boxes of coarse seasalt on various shelves!

Why is this? Is there something dangerous or wrong with “fine” seasalt? Or is it just our neighbourhood?

Perhaps somebody did a demographic study and decided that we don’t want fine seasalt.

Why oh why do they make these decisions for us?! :stomp:

Actually, there is one brand of “fine” seasalt at our closest supermarket. We tried it and we don’t like it. It’s too fine.


edit 18 April 2010: When we were looking for rennet, we finally found Aurora fine seasalt (iodized AND non-iodized) at a supermarket in Italytown. The non-iodized salt is just seasalt – nothing else. Our local supermarket STILL doesn’t have Aurora fine seasalt on the shelves.
