Harvestable-Spice Rack The Spice Rack is a new harvestable, received as a reward for unlocking all 6 dishes before the end of the event. It can be harvested once every 24 hours for a random spice.

Goal SeriesEdit

A new goal started at the beginning of this event called Tis the Seasonings. In this goal, players must buy and place the Holiday Spice Oven, cook 1 dish on it, and unlock all 6 dishes on it.

Unlocking the 6 dishes required the player to complete 6 timed goals. Unlike previous goal series, the goals could be completed in any order as long as they had been unlocked. The first goal, Unlock Holiday Spiced Chicken, was available on 21 December, with each of the other 5 goals becoming available two days later. The 6 "Unlock" goals are:
