Chocolate sprinkles on your toast may not sound like a typical American breakfast choice, but it's a staple for the Dutch—and it's obvious they know something we don't. There, it's called hagelslag, and it's been a national tradition since the 17th century, but an entrepreneurial duo hopes to bring it to the rest of the world asap.
Enter Hagelswag, a beautiful glass bottle filled with fair trade-certified 55% dark chocolate fragments, meant to sprinkle on dark bread (or on anything fluffy, flaky or carby) along with a smear of butter. People like to eat it untoasted to appreciate the crunch, but we wouldn't blame anyone who wants to heat it up and let the chocolate and butter melt together. Because, heaven.
If you donate at least $34 to Hagelswag's current Kickstarter compaign to bring the product into mass production, you'll receive a first-edition bottle if the project is funded. Keep in mind that while other versions of hagelslag are sold in sprinkle form, Hagelswag is chunkier and thicker, to cover more surface area on the bread. Not to mention that it's made with premium chocolate, sourced responsibly.
Hagelswag, hagelslag: Either way, we're desperate to try the stuff. Because a world filled with more chocolate-for-breakfast options is a world we want to live in.
