There are a lot of things we feed our crabs that are perfectly safe for them that aren't found in their natural habitats. Then there's the fact that different crabs come from different regions of the world where different plants/animals thrive (which they eat).
I can't find anything that would suggest any of those ingredients are immediately harmful to them, so try it. One good thing to remember is that when something isn't safe for our crabs, they tend to not eat it.

My answer is essentially the same as emberfusion's. While a crab may not necessarily find a chip like that in the wild, they could find those plants growing there. Also, like she said, if it isn't crabilicious, they won't eat it. Plus, crabs are scavengers so if you were on the beach & dropped one of those chips, local crabs could very easily find it & eat it I bet crabs who live near public beaches find all sorts of oddball foods, he he.
