List of Spices
Spices are stored in the Spice Box, which costs $280. Although you can store the box and still use it, you cannot store spices if you have not bought the box first.
The box has 12 slots, but only 3 of them are unlocked. Unlocking the other ones costs an increasing number of diamonds:
- Slot #4: 💎 9
- Slot #5: 💎 19
- Slot #6: 💎 49
- Slot #7: 💎 199
Each slot can hold 10 spices of the same type. VIP players can increase the amount of spices stored per slot.
If you get spices but cannot store them you will have to throw them out or switch them with other spices.
