What is "the spice of life" to you?

I was listening to my favorite Earth Wind and Fire song "Let's Groove" and the first lyric is "let's groove tonight, share the spice of life" so I got to thinking, what IS the spice of life? What do you guys think? All interpretations of spice are acceptable.
  1. My first thought was cinnamon. Why? Big Red, Atomic Fireballs and Jolly Rancher Fire Stick of course!
  2. Variety, of course!

  3. Togarashi 🇯🇵💝 it's these seven ingredients: chili pepper, black sesame seed, orange peel, ground sansho (which, by itself whole is also incredible), white sesame seed, hemp seed, ginger, seaweed.

  4. Cloves
    Has the best smell next to vanilla

  5. Chili powder! (Though I'm a spice whore really😉) but my love of Mexican food wins!

  6. chicken bouillon , although we call it consumer (read con-soo-mer) in spanish.
    there's not a mexican dish we make that isn't flavored with consumer

  7. The spice is life
    The spice must flow
