The Netherlands - Hagelslag

According to Stuff Dutch People Like, Dutch people eat more than 14 million kilos of hagelslag every year. Dutch sprinkle bread or hagelslag (literally: hailstorm) is one of the sweetest surprises that tourists happen upon when visiting this country. Essentially, it's bread slathered with butter (or another spread, such as Nutella), and chocolate sprinkles. It's kind of like a chocolate sprinkle donut but with less sugar and fewer calories. And don't be fooled by its "childlike" appeal—Dutch adults enjoy this sweet treat just as much as kids do.
