A Treat by Any Other Name: Defining Nonpareils

While many people think of nonpareils as the round, sprinkle-covered chocolate discs that plenty of us know and love, the term “nonpareil” can refer to a few different sugary treats. Round sprinkles (also known as jimmies, hundreds-and-thousands, and a handful of other colloquialisms) are sometimes called nonpareils, particularly within culinary circles. However, “nonpareil” can also refer to flat, round chocolates crowned with colorful sprinkles. The term, which is French in origin, is often understood to imply that these confections are without equal. If you have ever seen a delicate, perfect chocolate nonpareil studded with candy seeds, you likely understand why! Nonpareils’ refined, elegant appearance (paired with their rich chocolatey taste) makes them simply irresistible.

Nonpareils are Perfect for Snacking, Decorating, and More

Nonpareils possess a dainty, unparalleled beauty that makes them ideal for decoration. Their delicate appearance and simple, delicious flavor make these candies a versatile addition to any decorated dessert. Many bakers choose to use nonpareils to crown their frosted cupcakes, cakes, and other baked goods. However, nonpareils are just as common in candy dishes and snack bowls as they are in kitchens. These candies have a loyal following, and plenty of people enjoy snacking on nonpareils as they would with any other Wockenfuss Candies favorite.
