This was clearly a souvenir from the Blue Hole, but for the life of me, I don’t get the connection between deep, blue water and seasonings adorned with roosters that can sit on a park bench together. But then again, that’s what makes this piece so cool! It’s a perfect example of how, back in the day, roadside attractions would throw their logo on just about anything and sell them as souvenirs.
So how about you? Ever been to the Blue Hole? Better yet, ever seasoned your food with official Blue Hole Salt & Pepper Shakers? If you have, let me know about it in the comments section below!

I have home movies from when our parents took us to the Blue Hole. I was probably only two at the time and was in a stroller, but I remember the stories. Couldn’t tell you where it’s located though, nor if it’s still open.
thanks for sharing your memories with me! As for the Blue Hole, the original one was located in Castalia, Ohio, and has since closed. There is, however, a second Blue Hole located on the property, that is currently used as a fish hatchery. The hatchery is open during the week and they will let you peek at the second Blue Hole.
