The building is mostly light brown and green, and on top of it there is a brown pepper mill. The building has a light tan sign that reads, in green letters, "Spice Shack." On the front, there are two doors underneath an blue-green striped awning. On the left side of the doors, there are three windows. On the right side of the building, there are three windows. Above the windows there is an image of a leaf and the top of a stick of cinnamon.
It first appears in the 2013Christmas (event) update. Santa Claus is stuck in Bikini Bottom and SpongeBob/the player has to help him with tasks he asks of them. One of the tasks is to add the Spice Shack. It is used for supplies for the Treat Shop. At the end of the season, Santa leaves an old elf. This means that the player has to keep the store in order to fill his food requests which is sometimes fulfilled by using this store. There is also a stock of items so the player can only get about four of the items a day.
