My sister has lived in Scotland for near 30 years and every trip back to the USA she bought spices and various other items not readily available there. Tabasco, cornmeal, red peppers, buttermilk powder, and more. After I made her take me to at least 3 fish n chips shops, she told me she couldn't understand why Scots didn't fry shrimp or other seafood which was abundant where she lived. Her neighbors had never had a fried butterflied shrimp before.

Sugar counts as a spice, doesn't it?

I'm not an expert, but I don't think it does. I also don't think salt counts as a spice. Both are flavor enhancers, but they don't add flavor or aroma. Also, sugar and salt both change the chemistry or texture of baked goods, whereas spices do not.
