My oldesr daughter who's now, 18 did this when she was younger & I took it away from her.
Now, my 12 yr old son - is doing the same thing.
My mom gave him some money to walk to a gas station with a friend to buy a soda and candy. Not a big deal.
But he bought a little bottle of limon lime salt, chili lime salt & lime salt.
When i got to my mom's house he was accross the street with the neighbor kid, who's the same age.
And i saw they were eating something. I called for him to get his things & that we were going home.
He left the salt in the car, so i took and hide them.
He did realize and ask for them a few hours later.
Also, reading text on my kids phones I found out he also bought an engery drink - Monster.
How do I stress even more that these things are not healthy?
Have you had these issue with your kids?

You need to make a Dr. appt to have this checked. I heard of a child who wanted to over salt everything & it turned out he had some kind of deficiency. It was serious b/c it went untreated. It may be nothing, but it's better safe than sorry. GL
