    I inquired with the manufacture the other day .
    Got a call back this afternoon from a gentleman named john Parker
    I guess there is no dealer in WI
    we talked about the costs etc of becoming dealer ..?.. Bit steep I'm afraid for me right now :-/
    But he gave me contact info to a guy in Cicero (west chitown)
    That I /we might b able to get bagged magic from ???.
    I will call him tomorrow and find out wut up with it and such .
    Perhaps if u r interested also, we could work a better deal mayb ??.
    Message me if you'd like to discuss

    There are several "off brands" of magic salt across the nation. If you are looking for the original Magic Salt, PM me and I can put you in touch with the manufacturer. From the fact you have costs to get set up as a dealer, it sounds as if it is not Magic Salt but something else.

    12ramhd, if you were looking for the original formula formally found in Magic Salt you can only get it thru John Parker's network. Magic Salt no longer is the same product it was two years ago. It now contains molasses. Not DCS. It is now found in IBG Magic. The important ingredient is 50% dcs, it is not 20% molasses as found in the new Magic Salt. Good Luck.

    While we're at it, does anyone vend here in MA? I wouldn't mind 55 gallon drums and mixing with raw salt on my own either. I had a supplier from last year, but do not know if Ill be working with that company again this year.
