The Spicy Hug Of Yin And Yang

There is nothing more comforting than a warm hug from your mother. It’s the most natural form of reassurance, and metaphorically speaking, an embrace can help us conquer our fears and achieve aspirations. My point is that a hug says a lot about human emotions, be it a bear hug or side-shoulder embrace. Depicting this raw gesture is the Hug Salt & Pepper Shakers delightful with a zing. Because when viewed from above, they also resembles Yin & Yang!

    Cute – Yes.
    Good design – No.

    Because of the salt shaker’s small holes it will be difficult to use it with any of the quality salts available. As for a pepper dispenser it needs a grinding mechanism.

    The best thing I’ve found for salt is a marble mortar and pestle which allows me to pulverise the salt which allows this salt to be more evenly distributed. It works especially well on popcorn after popping it in an extra-virgin olive oil and a bit of butter.

    I completely agree with that. I have them too, and they are really cute 🙂 But not the best useful design… the wholes are far too big… so you always end up with too much salt/pepper in your food… Anyway, I love them!
