This turned out to be a fairly disgusting and clumpy blend of salt and flavorings, rather than a true smoked salt. Forget this and get one such as the Hickory Smoked Sea Salt or Applewood Smoked Sea Salt, which are much much better.
I had bought some hickory smoked salt in a local store previously and was hoping that this was a good replacement. It's close but not what I had bought before. Smell and taste is a different. Not enough charred flavoring.
I was very disappointed with the product recieved. Okay that it arrived in 16 1 oz packages instead of one large one, I was told ahead of time *although seems strange that you would be out of 16 0x. bags but when I recieved package it was 16 packages of rock salt. Solidified salt.
When I received my salt, it was soooooooooooooooo hard and dried out, I could not use it or even break it up to a "salt" consistency.
I called and said I needed to return, could not use and everyone was so nice there - no need to salt mail the salt back, I would get a full refund very soon. Can't remember who I talked to, but said that sometimes happens with the natural salt products. It was only a matter of a couple of days, I got an email confirming refund and all is good. I was VERY impressed with the customer service and will definitely order from My Spice Sage again. FYI - can not find hickory smoked salt in the stores. Thought I would give you guys a try.
We love it's taste and how it add so much flavor to our foods. However, the chore is keeping the salt from sticking together. Then we are unable to use it at all. You need to address this problem so that the Smoked salt can be enjoyed to it's highest level. Do something about it clinging together!!!
This was my first time buying a smoked salt. It is amazing. It helps mimic the flavor you'd get from a smoker, which is great for winter mints when it's harder to use one. I would definitely buy other variations in the future
I'm a little disappointed by this product, I have loved everything I've purchased from My Spice Sage. However, for some reason this hickory salt completely clumped up. I've tried to break it up but there's no way to. The bits I have been able to break apart shows this would add amazing flavor to meat dishes.
