Welcome to another edition of Squid Ink Special, in which we highlight a great deal or specialty ingredient found on a grocery store shelf near you. Today's special is a container of Ritz brand Chocolade Hagelslag found in Chinatown's Ai Hoa Market. Hagelslag, or "sprinkles" as they are more commonly known to us, are a popular Dutch confection. These hagelslag come to us by way of Indonesia, a country with a huge Dutch influence, thanks, of course, to some hefty colonialism. For just $4.59 you can purchase your very own package of Indonesian-Dutch sprinkles from a Chinese market, right in the heart of Chinatown. To enjoy them as they are most commonly consumed, simply sprinkle your hagelslag atop a slice of buttered bread or toast and enjoy.

Ai Hoa Market: 860 N Hill St., Chinatown, 213) 629-8121.
