Our word salary comes from the Latin salarium which was a Roman Legionary's allowance to buy salt. In fact the word soldier comes from sal dare which means "give salt." And that gives us the expression "being worth one's salt." Our salt is $60 per pound. Larger packages mean a little less effort to pack and I will pass that on. But good salt is expensive. It should be. Just like it's possible to buy a hamburger for $1, but the $8 hamburger is generally a better experience and probably easier to digest! I think once you try Marblehead Salt you will not only enjoy it more, you'll enjoy consuming less salt but of a much higher quality. In essence you'll say, Marblehead Salt is worth its salt.
