Fairy Bread


An old housemate from New Zealand came to visit last weekend, so we bought some squishy white bread and served up a typical Dutch breakfast. When he saw the hagelslag his eyes popped: “Dutch people eat Fairy Bread for breakfast ?

“Fairy Bread” is a treat served at children’s birthday parties in New Zealand to keep the guests well-sugared. Like the Dutch mealtime standard, it consists of buttered white bread topped with coloured sugar balls called “hundreds and thousands”.

As for me, I’m going to stick to eating Chocolade Cruesli with yogurt bij mijn ontbijt.
