The best of both worlds... Life doesn't get any better.

Amongst generation Y,  funfetti is the most popular- the other term used for plain old sprinkles!

A dutch company - Gerard de Vries for Venz was the first to create these sprinkles, they were called hagelslag which translates to chocolate sprinkles. It was used on bread where they would spread butter on top so as to ensure the sprinkles would stick properly and they wouldn't lose too many along the way.

The Dutch way, smart and efficient and still used today.

The name derived from a resemblance to a weather occurrence in the netherlands during Autumn- hail storm. After much research Venz invented a machine that would produce these perfect cylinder shaped sprinkles.

Brilliant!

It's been said that a candy shop decided to create sprinkles as well, chocolate ones, although they may not have carried any elements of real chocolate!!!

While the dates are fuzzy for both, we know that Venz continued to innovate with these sprinkles creating more flavors for all of us to try.

Popularity grew in the 90's where funfetti cakes and cupcakes exploded. Today, if you were to search for funfetti on pinterest, there are more recipes then you can make in a lifetime!
