    As long as they say sodium chloride or halite, there shouldn't be any real difference except possibly the size of the granules.

    If you get windsor , make sure the bag is all yellow , better quality than yellow bags with white ends .

    Around here Morton is the best. Clean and consistent granulars. American Rock Salt sucks donkey balls. A lot if dirt and crushed powder. So yes there is a difference.
