How much is Splenda in the U.S.?

I bought a 9.7 oz bag of granular Splenda today at a health food store here. It cost me the equivalent of US$ 15.45. I wonder just how much of this is import duties and extra mark-up.

So how much does it cost in the U.S.?

I've only bought it once so far, so am not positive on the price, but it seemed like it was 6 bucks and change for the same size package you bought. Prices are usually pretty high at health food stores. Possibly someone who uses it more often than I do can give you a better idea on price.

6 dollars seems about right.
