The discounter shared the image on Facebook of its new Himalayan Rock Salt for horses costing £1.99. Whilst many people praised the product particularly those that worked or owned horses, some customers were left very confused.
The post read: “Himalayan Rock Salt by Saltean is coming soon to stores for £1.99!
“Increased hydration response, contains 100% Natural Himalayan Mineral Salt.”
In response one Facebook user wrote: “I could regret asking this but what is this for??”
Another shopper called the product a “bit random”.
A third joked: “People who have no idea what this is are going to be buying it for their chips.”
Another commented: “What do you use it for.”
However, the majority of shoppers praised the product and tagged their friends and family in the post.
One Facebook user commented: “We better stock up.”
Another replied: “Any excuse to pop to home bargains.”
