Are Metallic Sprinkles Edible?

Our Metallic Sprinkle Mixes contain silver and/or gold dragees which are coated in non toxic, but non-FDA approved for consumption silver & gold food coloring. While it is approved for consumption in many other countries, it is not in the United States. For this reason, in the USA, they must be labeled as "For Decoration Only." However, the core of these dragees are made of sugar and cake decorators all over the world have been using and eating dragees for decades. Please use this information to make your own determination on the edibility of metallic dragees. 

What are "Kid Friendly" Sprinkle Mixes?

Some of our sprinkle mixes contain hard sugar pearls and macaroni dragees (dragee rods) that could be considered a choking hazard to small children. Kid friendly sprinkle mixes contain no metallics or hard sugar pearls. 

What is the Shelf Life?

Sprinkle mixes are guaranteed for 18 months after purchase. However, in reality there is no reason why they wouldn't last for several years provided they are stored in a cool, and dry environment. Exposure to sunlight may cause color fading. 

How long will it take for my sprinkles to get here? 

Orders are typically shipped within 2-3 days of ordering and take anywhere from 1 to 7 days to arrive at their destination. Orders are shipped via USPS and occasionally can take longer due to post office inefficiencies. If you need the sprinkles in 2 weeks or less, it's recommended that you purchase expedited shipping. 

How much do I need?

As a point of reference the 4 oz jar is enough sprinkles for 24-36 cupcakes depending on how heavy handed you are. Please note that the 2oz package is considered to be a sample size.
