Sad seasoning: Tears of laughter in a jar

Sad seasoning: Tears of laughter in a jar

When was the last time you had a good cryIn the middle of a film Or after a fight with your other half

And while you were mid sob, did you find yourself licking your lips in enjoyment of the salty taste

In the rare case that yes you did, there is good news!

A quirky London emporium has come up with a range of salt which they claim is made from human tears.

They say the Salt Made From Tears range contains ‘the freshest human tears which are gently boiled’.

You can even choose what kind of tears you like, picking from salt made from Tears of Anger, Sorrow, Laughter, Chopping onions or Sneezing.

It’s all a clever gimmick — the real origins of this sad seasoning is Anglesey — but, at 30 a set, the price might be enough to drive you to tears . . .
