What is a Mini Salt Pack? What is a Mini Pepper Pack? What is a Mini Chilli Pack?

I still get confused, so to make things easier for us all, I have created this page to help summarise the different Mini Packs available! The packs below refer to the 2nd generation R55 & R56 Mini’s, but they have mainly stayed the same throughout the model years (which are also explained below!).
