First ingredient is salt, and only a 3.5 ounce container. If you made these at home yourself, they would be around 80 cents, not 258 cents. Just saying...
Really? Let's check out the ingredients of the Mango Habanera:

Sea salt, cane sugar, dehydrated orange peel, spices (habanera pepper), dehydrated onion, dehydrated garlic, citric acid, natural mango flavor, paprika, turmeric powder, natural smoke flavor, silicon dioxide (added as a flow agent)

Hmm, would need an orange, a mango, habanera (habanero) pepper, smoke flavoring, among other ingredients. Doesn't look like 80 cents to me. Add in the time & effort it would take to achieve some reasonable balance and the 258 cents is looking like a slick deal.
