When you’re next in the kitchen, instead of reaching for the kosher salt (sorry Alton Brown), try adding a dash of Salt Made from Tears.

It’s exactly as it sounds. Hoxton Street Monster Supplies has a line of salts made from tears of anger, of laughter, of sorrow, from chopping onions and while sneezing (ew).

Who would want to season their omelette with someone else’s sorrow? Plenty. Hoxton has been sold out of its collection and there’s a backorder of three weeks.

We’re terribly sorry but the humans of Hoxton have been a little too full of joy and the tears have run dry. Regrettably it’s taking a little longer than usual to fulfil your orders.
