In 1919 the director of licorice factory, Venco, invented white sprinkles with aniseed flavor as a bread topping. According to the archive of the municipality of Amsterdam, a rough day in autumn brought him the idea: it was hailing. The original recipe of hagelslag can still be found in this archive.
Chocolate factory Venz was the first to produce chocolate sprinkles (chocolade hagelslag) as a bread topping. Hagelslag is pretty common in Holland, Belgium and former Dutch colonies (Indonesia and Suriname)
Hagelslag is only allowed to be called “chocolade hagelslag” if it contains 32% or more cocoa. If it contains less cocoa, it is called ‘cocoa phantasy’. Venz en De Ruijter Hagelslag are the most famous brands of chocolate sprinkles. Nowadays hagelslag is available in many different flavors: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and extra dark chocolate are common.
