What better way to start the day than with a slice of bread with chocolate sprinkles? It is a typical breakfast in the Netherlands and Belgium. Did you know that in Belgium they are also called ‘muizenstrontjes’, which literally means mice droppings? Spreading chocolate sprinkles on bread is unheard of in other countries and may be surprising to many people. The word ‘hagelslag’ comes from ‘hagel’, which is Dutch for hail, owing to the resemblance between chocolate sprinkles, typically made from cocoa powder, sugar and cocoa butter, and hailstones. There are several ways of eating chocolate sprinkles. In the Netherlands, people spread them on slices of bread, toasts or crackers on top of a layer of margarine or butter. You may also put chocolate sprinkles together with peanut butter on your bread or use them as a topping for cakes and pastries.

Sprinkles to suit every taste
In the past only milk chocolate sprinkles could be found, but nowadays all sorts of sprinkles are available. As well as the usual milk, dark, extra dark and white chocolate sprinkles, many more flavours have been developed, including fruit, forest fruit, vanilla, anise and even white and milk chocolate combined. Sprinkles for children have also been around for a while. These contain figures of animals or beloved children’s characters from TV hidden within the package. Supermarkets offer a great variety of sprinkles: from their own brand to the most popular brands, such as De Ruijter and Venz. Do you have a favourite kind of sprinkles?

A little bit of history
B. E. Dieperink, head of liquorice factory Venco, came up around 1919 with an idea for white anise-flavoured sprinkles which could be used to put on bread. According to Amsterdam’s city archives, he was struck by the idea on a bleak autumn day while hail poured down from the sky. Chocolate ‘hail’ was produced for the first time in 1936 by chocolate company Venz. However, the name ‘hagelslag’ had already been patented by Venco, so other brands, as well as old Venz packages, marketed chocolate sprinkles under the name ‘chocoladehagel’ instead.
