Spices are unlocked at Level 5 and used to make special recipes for customers and fill orders. There are a total of 11 different spices in the game, ranging from common to extremely rare. Collected spices are stored in the player's Spice Box and can be accessed by clicking directly on the box in their café or by clicking on the Spice icon (shown left).

List of spices[]

Listed in order of rarity from the most common to the rarest.

Storing spices[]

Spices are stored in the Spice Box, which players can purchase for 280 coins. You must first purchase the Spice Box to unlock the ability to store spices; however, you can put the box in the Storehouse afterward to save counter space.

The box has 12 slots that can hold 10 spices of the same type in each slot, but only 3 slots are initially unlocked. Unlocking the remaining slots will cost diamonds, except in the second spice box available to VIP 7 players which costs rubies. Some VIP players will also get a discount when purchasing new slots and the ability to store an increased number of spices per slot (see VIP for more details).

Excess spices and donating[]

Any extra spices that cannot fit in the spice box will have to be deleted. However, once you have unlocked all 12 slots in the first spice box, you will have the opportunity to donate any excess spices directly from the spice box to your township's Treasury, assuming you are in one. The number of diamonds that will be donated to the Treasury for spices is less than their price in the Spice Store.
