As long as I'm being an internet complaint generator

It's pretty pointless for me to pretend, at this late date when my goal is to die in air-conditioned comfort in a house big enough to hold all my books, that I'm some kind of anti-consumerist firebrand. I won't even act like I'm immune to the allure of convenience packaging -- I am self-employed and single, after all. There's not even anything inherently wrong with a company trying to sell you as little of its product as possible for as much money as possible; that's the name of the capitalist game, and it takes something pretty outrageous to even be worth responding to.

Having said all that, you've got to be shitting me.

What this is, is a cardboard package containing enough herbs and spices -- in portions of less than one teaspoon -- to make a single meal that uses those herbs and spices. And it retails for two dollars, or roughly the same amount of money you would spend on a container of the same spices that has twenty times as much.

I predict it will be a huge seller.
