Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style Sea Salt (Fine Grain) - 5 lb Bag is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely salt I've purchased this salt several times. I find that I keep coming back to it because it offers everything I need - the 'saltiness' doesn't overwhelm, it can be used in baking or cooking or finishing, and I like to believe that the charcoal has subtle health benefits. Note that if you're putting it in a light colored dish or sauce, it will turn the whole thing slightly grey. I wouldn't use it for rimming a glass because I have no doubt that it would leave a black smudge on your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This salt is yummy! This is the first time that I've used the small grain Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style sea salt, and I am loving it. I have used the coarse grain before and love that, too! The comments around the table were "this is really good!" and "it somehow tastes saltier than salt, in a good way." I have been using this small grain in my every day cooking, mixed 3:1 with kosher salt. It's been working out deliciously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious & Delightful! I'm a salt FANATIC and love to cook. I made a dish for our potluck picnic, sprinkled it with some coarse Hiwa Kai salt and it was a huge hit! The flavor pops in your mouth and the color adds a gourmet touch. I also like that the activated charcoal has a detox effect on the body. It's delicious & delightful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich, black color Very dark black salt that doesn't lose it's color once mixed in to any dish. I top my gourmet toffee with this one & it's gorgeous! I don't taste any distinctive flavor to this one but black sea salts always look different than others so it's something fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous flavor Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style Sea This salt adds a unique flavor to my foods. I can change up the flavor and people wonder what I have done or if it is a different recipe. I have 3 different flavors of sea salt from Saltworks and I will keep them among my seasonings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Salt for Cooking and Bath This is THE salt to have for soups. The dark quality makes all the soup ingredients pop. Flavor is amazing. It is also great for bathing salt scrubs (finer grinds) with the addition of some coconut oil and a little fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Finishing Salt I brought this about two weeks ago and my customers love. It has a suttle unique taste that can go with anything. You’ll never see any black trace when you use this salt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love/like I love the activate charcoal, but it isn't salty enough for us. I'm about to buy another 5lb bag of the french salt and mix a small batch at 50/50 to get more salty salt.
