    It is more expensive than generic salt, but it is not that expensive. Dollar Tree sells it in a container similar in size to other spices for $1.

    • Christina Kaur says:

      It’s not dyed. The FDA requires all manufacturers of food, including salts, to list ALL the ingredients of their products. The only ingredient on the label is Himalayan salt, and it’s imported from Pakistan.

      90% of the stuff in dollar tree is the identical item that’s$3 – $5 elsewhere. “Tomato Ketchup” factory. Heinz buys a million bottles for $500,000, puts a Heinz sticker on it & sells it for $3 each. Hunt’s buys a million bottles for $500,000, puts a Hunts sticker on it & sells it for $2. Dollar tree buys a million bottles for $500,000, puts a “dollar tree” (I forgot the name of their brand) sticker on it & sells it for $1.

    • FyreBeatz says:

      wow thank you

    • Abdul Basit Dalvi says:

      Sorry incorrect. Basically what they said in the whole video is it’s sought after more. Which clearly means demand is more. Hence cost is more in turn. Simple supply demand logic.
