So many names for such a simple item,
they haave been called jimmies, sprinkies, vermicelle...

The ones easily available are so poor - so much wax

Ones I used while working in France were great..!!

Any clues ? Who has them in small quantities...

Actually, last time I was in the US we bought some in Whole Foods Market in San Fransisco (www.wholefoodsmarket.com) - not sure if there is one near you. They were a little grainy and rough, but better than the waxy kind - we have those in the UK as well and they are not good!

I've checked and the distributors I know of don't carry any, but I'll keep looking out for you.

Mmm, we are hearing rumours from our friends at http://www.organicfood.co.uk that Kallo have stopped producing their entire chocolate line. This is rather tragic if it's true - their bubble white and milk chocolate bars are gorgeous and we were hoping to sell them on this site in the future.

I shall be contacting Kallo to find out the what's going on and get back to you ...

Hi KingMonkee,

Sorry to hear your monkey minions are so troubled by their lack of bubbly white!

Anyway, it turns out that your Kallo white was in fact made by a German company called Vivani (www.vivani.de), so fear not - it's still being made!

We don't think they sell it in the UK under their own brand yet, but we shall be contacting them shortly to ask if they might be anytime soon.

They also make a great range of other organic chocolate products, a few of which we've tried, including the addictive 'Winter Schokolade' - which is rather like Lebkuchen in milk chocolate - too naughty for words!
