Thread has just reminded me about the other week when I was in B&M, in the dog section (Pets) they had 500ml Salmon oil in a pump action dispenser. Reading the label, it was pure Salmon oil with no additives etc.

But its price was £4.99 and I think that compares with bait product retailers, but, it does make it handy to grab there and then in passing for a quick trip etc rather than waiting for post man if your local tackle shop does not stock it.

I have never heard of black chickpeas before. Just got this from google
"Black chickpeas are slightly higher in protein and fibre than white chickpeas, and they also contain more iron, folate, and antioxidants. On the other hand, white chickpeas are slightly lower in calories and carbohydrates than black chickpeas"
Very interesting. I'll have to find some now

I paid £1.49 for salt 800g bag from a shop by my missus place itís an Asian supermarket so I by the beans from there like lentils,chickpeas & ungbeans(look like hemp)to caulk out my spomb mixes or to prebait a canal.
The Asian shops normally do catering tins of chickpeas as well I also found a shop that done black & white chickpeas which I think maybe different.

salted caramel is something I am wanting to try soon.

Surely that could be a winner?!

I buy Himalayan Rock Salt from TK Maxx, you get a massive bag for the same price as the Nash branded stuff

Love the stuff (particularly in Thai) not so much in the sleeping bag after using it
I'll never forget a trip to Sapphire Lakes where in my infinite wisdom I decided to use Belachan and Rod Hutchinson Monster Mussel let down with fish sauce, height of summer ...
Some years later I discovered washing my hands in alcohol got rid of it, Secret Agent made that discovery a necessity.

belachan shrimp paste is one of the items that I buy from the Asian supermarkets here in Toronto, its like $3 for a block and as you know a block can go a long way as its so potent.

Squid Fish Sauce, you can't beat it

Second or even third the comments about your local Asian supermarket - all the spices you could ever want, whole range of fish sauces, soy sauces and dried piscatorial ingredients.

Trouble is I get half of it home and eat it myself before it goes near a bait recipe let alone a lake

Also places like B&M or pound stretcher sell bags of soldier fly lavea so I blend mine and add it to stick mixes so pieces float up in water columns,ideal for start of spring

You can also get bags of tiny dried shrimp at the Asian supermarkets, I crush some up into powder and keep some whole and add it to my particles the night before I want to use them, you want them to draw in some water otherwise it all just floats up immediately upon introduction.

That last sentence sums it up really.

Re Marmite in winter, let it down a bit 1st, as per Tyto, with anything you want otherwise it gets messy when rebating and you'll get funny looks for your hand towel
Using dry powders to dip your marmite covered boilies in works well, ground dry shrimp rises nicely off the bait

The world is your Oyster.....Oyster sauce...another good one
