A Note of Caution
Depending on their texture, different types of spices will make different sounds when shaken in the cup. For example, paprika and cinnamon will make different sounds than salt, pepper or basil.
To remedy this, you can place varying amounts of each spice in their respective cups. Sometimes this will balance out the discrepancies in the sounds made.
Salt/pepper/basil tend to need more amounts relative to thicker spices such as paprika & cinnamon in order to make similar sounds when shaken.
