All Chocolate Jimmies?

sivyaleah Jul 21, 2006 06:19 PM

I had found a brand of all chocolate jimmies, you know, sprinkles for ice cream. Unfortunately, I through away the bottle and now I can't find the brand again.

Does anyone know of a supplier for these? All the other brands are full of partially hydrogenated oils, and other garbage. I try and stay away from those things for health reasons.

    I had just mentioned these to my husband, came to do a google search and this site came up with this thread. They have always been my favorite, but when I was a kid in the 60's, they were real chocolate back then!

          When you go to the bakers catalog page..just enter 'chocolate sprinkles" and you will get to the correct page!

            My son brought back boxes of that stuff from Holland. They eat it there on bread with butter for breakfast!! (At least that is what he tried to tell me ;) )

            "Jimmies" now there's a term I haven't heard since college in Boston!!!
            I was recently discussing Brighams Irish Coffee ice cream with the conical scoop...does Brighams still exist I wonder??!!

            Here's a link for you with real chocolate..........''SPRINKLES"!

              I'm happy to report that both jimmies and Brighams are alive and well in the Boston area. Chocolate jimmies are found readily on all supermarket shelves here and are not at all considered exotic! As for Brighams, their mocha almond is pure heaven, complete with whole almonds and a rich coffee essence.....can you tell we just finished a quart?

                That makes me soooo happy!
                With memories and places of my youth disappearing so fast, when consistency seems like a lost art..it is great to hear that Brighams exists...and the ice cream still pleases...thank you for responding!

              I think you can find these at Restaurant Supply or Cake Supply stores. I know I see them all the time at Surfas here in L.A. :)
