A Little Nonpareil History
For those who don’t know, nonpareils are tiny pieces of colored sugar that are commonly used to decorate flat round chocolates. Nonpareil translates from French into “without equal.” A recipe from 1886 calls the candy “Chocolate Drops with Nonpareils”, which is a good description of the candy. Over the years, it became simplified to “Chocolate Nonpareils”. Most people remember the Sno Caps chocolate candy nonpareils, which consisted of very small dark chocolates covered with tiny balls of white sugar.
Today, the basic nonpareils have come a long way, baby! For one thing, they’re not just black and white anymore, you can get them in almost any color.
