This, and look at German protectionism for example.

In Bavaria, the police drive BMWs. BMW is a Bavarian company. But that must be a coincidence seeing they do a fair and transparent tendering process.

In Baden Württember the Police drive Mercedes. Mercdes Benz is a BW company.

In Niedersachen they drive VW. can you guess where VW is based?

So many coincidences.

But when the Italian police drive Fiats, that's corruption.
Poor FIAT: most of the Polizia nowadays is using BMW 3-series tourings.

Anyway looking at the recent Zürich Gemeinde elections SVP are losing popularity at the rate of one seat out of every four.

Re: Why is SVP popular?

thankfully the FDP is the dominant party where i live. must be a bit stifling living around a bunch of spooky inbred SVP types.

Me too. I'm down to my last box. Luckily I can re-stock this summer.

We used to have a boat at Malden.
Most of the time in Malden it's mudflats and waiting for high tide so you can actually sail somewhere.

Sea salt? Now that's patriotism.

Seriously, how could that be noticeably different than the others...

(rushing to buy that Himalayan pink stuff now :-) )

Texture and format as much as taste. Try it. There is a reason so many top chefs worldwide swear by it.

Out of curiosity, is it expensive?
I was in Migros the other week and seriously considering to pay something like 30 chf for a small, cute, rare salt jar....and then I came to my senses.

Re: Why is SVP popular?

Nope. About 9 chf / kg. I’ve bought fancy expensive Himalayan salt before for way more but I prefer Maldons over those any day.
