Just in case there are some who avoid herbs and spices, can we broaden the theme a bit?

Used as a noun, the most direct use of “spice” is in reference to an aromatic or pungent vegetable derived substance that is used to flavor food. The word can also be used indirectly in reference to something that adds interest or excitement. When used as a verb, spice refers to the act of adding interest or excitement.

That made me laugh. I was a Brut person myself, but it stunk just as much. :)

As an SF fan, I couldn't let the mention of Spice go by without a reference to Frank Herbert's Dune :D
