Yes we do. As an example, a popular breakfast food: Boterham met hagelslag

That would be brown bread, butter, and sprinkles. They vary in flavor from chocolate, anise, to fruit flavors.
Here in Jersey those are called Jimmies, the rainbow ones are sprinkles.

In the Netherlands, they are all called "hagelslag". To be called that, the chocolate ones (chocoladehagelslag) must contain 32% cocoa. They honestly taste more like solidified Nutella than the donut/cake sprinkles here, which mostly just taste like sugar bits.

Dutch people know how to have fun.



They also know how to split a check.

Looking forward! Coincidentally, my daughter's major is historic preservation/archaeology. She just did a big paper about what clay pipes can tell you about the area you found them in.

Broken clay pipes are one of the most common items uncovered when archeologists excavate outhouses.

This isn't a comment on the smokeability of clay pipes so much as on how people used to discard broken things. All sorts of broken crockery is found at the bottom of outhouses, too, among other things.

And then Nording saw a business opportunity, saved said clay and crushed it into little bits for people to put in the bottom of their pipes instead of the bottoms of their outhouses.

Plan ahead. We've only got a couple of months to go until the 1st of Claypril!

No Corona virus lockdown can shut down the Claypril festivities.
