These flakes add a tasty crunch to your pastry items.

Nonpareils, jimmies, sugar crystals, pearls, these are all great toppings for your cupcakes and candies, but there is a topping that adds a slightly sweet crunch to your pastries and even candy. These are the Crispy Flakes. The French even have a name for this topping: feuilletine, and it’s used in many fine pastries.

They are slightly sweet and has a taste that will remind you of a sugar cone for ice cream. Their neutral color will complement almost any pastry or candy.

So give ’em a try and add a new level of taste and texture to your goodies.
