Save 801¢ With Seasoning Packet Sale At Winn-Dixie

Alyson snapped this picture quickly at Winn-Dixie to evade detection, which is why it’s blurry. I’m not sure that things would be better if it were in focus. It wouldn’t make any more sense than it does now.


The regular price of packets is $1.99, and the apparent sale price is $10. If you have your store card, the sign brags, you can save 801 cents.

The sale is probably 10 packets for $10, or a dollar each, which is a reasonable price for premixed spice packets and not a bad sale. Whoever made the sign probably scrambled the numbers, but at least one customer was confused enough to avoid this product entirely.

“Needless to say, I bought another brand of seasoning,” Alyson writes. “I know, making my own is so much better but I’m in the middle of a move and lack half of what’s needed to make it myself.”

Don’t worry, Consumerist doesn’t judge you. Unless you pay ten bucks for a McCormick spice packet, but it doesn’t look like anyone is doing that.
