Winter is Coming!.. Rock Salt 12.5kg @ tesco in store only 97p

87
Found 19th Sep 2012
Picked some up (with one arm) for the old dear today, as soon as the ice hits it will be alot more than this! In store only!

Perfect for clearing paths and driveways, presume its last years stock or the summer price! 3 left in the store I found them (pengam green).

Haven't tried on chips yet but that could be another use for it.

I found last winter that (if the rock salt has all gone) dishwasher salt is a good alternative ... clears the ice quickly and cheaply!

You know nothing Jon Snow
Christmas is coming,
The geese are getting fat,
Please put a penny
In the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny,
A ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny,
Then God bless you.
Steal from the council grit bins?

Last time there was crazy snow the council dropped a load of grit in a pile outside a local church so they could grit the paths for the old grannies on a Sunday, people stole it all within an hour.

Global warming didn't pan out, it's climate change now.

All of the earth's destructive events are worsened by humans ( they haven't found a way to blame earthquakes and volcanoes on us yet though).
Good price, but still got some left from last winter's damp squib.

Yep, Global Warming....the biggest con of modern times. I put it second only to the bible as the biggest fraud of all time.

you have a perfectly valid point there.

Is this safe for human consumption?

Global Warming / Climate Change is true, however it is bar far not the fault of humans which is what the media is trying to tell everyone. It is a natural occurrence that happens in cycles on the planet. The Ice Age wasn't exactly our fault, and nor will the warmer climate we are *slowly* reaching.

The salt will be fine, but you won't enjoy all the other impurities that come with it (earth, sand, lumps of limestone etc etc).

Stick to sea salt in the grinder, your teeth and stomach will thank you.

Dammit, seen the 'Winter is Coming' headline and thought this would be something Game of Thrones related

On another note, is this stuff not supposed to be really bad for your driveway?

Heat added OP, good find..
Keeps the snails off the path too!
I'll pay the iron price
not dragon's glass so voted cold
put this on your drive and watch your drive dissolve infront of you !!!!
Will laminate flooring be damaged by this if it gets walked into the house?

We've trashed the planet and sped up the rate of not only climate change, but all patterns in nature.
It's the chance that 7 billion people won't be able to respond quick enough to survive or live comfortably in the relative near future, that is the worry. Not a 22,000 year old ice age reoccurring.
Tasmania was cut off from Australia 10,000 years ago by warming, but it was europeans who wiped out the Tasmanian Aborigines less than 200 years ago.
I'll take my chances and see if I can find an ice skates and snowboard multipack for 96p

Put some on my Gran's path a couple of winters ago. Come the thaw and her path crumbled. Put it down to the unusually low temperatures we had that winter and the ice, but suspect it was the rock salt that was mostly responsible.
