The Cutest Salt 'n Pepper Shakers Ever

This isn't Marilyn related but it was too much fun not to share.  If you live in Canada you may be familiar with the Knorr Sidekicks commercials featuring a sad salt shaker.  The character is advertising their new lower sodium products, so the joke is that the shaker is sad because he isn't being used as much anymore.

Here is the original ad that pulls at your heartstrings and makes you fall in love with poor Salty.

This was a follow up that I only saw online.  They should keep them coming - they are great!

Currently, if you live in Canada you can mail away for your own set of shakers.  Be patient, they took 8 weeks to come but it was worth the wait.  Here they are!!!  I smile every time I walk into the kitchen.  BTW, the card that comes around his neck says, "Please only use me sparingly."  Too cute.


  1. I love this little guy! if only we had him in the UK. I would be watching your 'Salty' every min of every day incase he decides to come to life :)

  2. They are so cute!! I was google searching for a recipe and came across these shakers.....would you know how I could get some?

  3. I'm not sure if you have to be a Canadian resident but here is the link

    I think they are also showing up on Ebay now.

  4. i would kill for a set of those shakers,they,re sooooooooo cute. i really want a set but don,t know how to go about getting, sometimes i feel like selling my 3,000 dollar mountain bike out in my garage and using some of the money to buy the ones on ebay. i,d do anything to get those shakers except sell my soul to the devil
