I used to use and old shaker that has very large holes, don't remember the spice that came in it, but like you say it has a screw on lid.
Screw on lids are essential for kids when getting out and putting away. LOL (or even the flip top ones, but they have a tendency to break off with constant use)
and yeah, I can see you might want to keep it tight in the humidity of Florida.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
