Difference between allspice and mixed spice

Although they are near enough in flavor to stand in for each other sometimes, allspice is in fact one single spice, the berry of an evergreen tree growing wild in South America and the West Indies. It got its name because it resembles a mixture of four spices: cinnamon, cloves, mace and pepper. The term 'mixed' spice is a vague one which usually means a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and sometimes cumin.
