Mr. Sprinkles, why do you make me so sad?

Mr. Sprinkles

If you’re not familiar with this brand, these are the sprinkles I used for the pink cupcake pops when I was on the Martha Stewart Show. And as seen here…

Cupcake Pops

I love them. The colors are pretty and their petite size is perfect for my pops. Not to mention, they come in the super cutest container ever!

Just one problem. Right after the show, they changed the formula. Now, Mr. Sprinkles uses no-artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. BUMMER! Yeah, I said bummer. Because now they may be better, but they just aren’t as cute. Going all-natural caused the colors to go from lovely to shall I say a little drab. See…

Mr. Sprinkles

Okay, okay! I know, I’m the only one that will care about the color change. So, for everyone else, these are great. Anytime you can make a product better, it’s a good thing. Look for them in the ice cream condiment section of your grocery store or you can buy a whole bunch of Rainbow Mr. Sprinkles from Amazon. (These may be the original kind though. The picture doesn’t have the All-Natural Green label.)

And, If you care, I hear Mr. Sprinkles is looking in to ways to make the all-natural formula colors more fun. YAY! But, in the meantime I’m saving my last “regular” bottle of Mr. Sprinkles for a special occasion.

Keep scrolling to see what happens when sprinkles attack and how you can WIN your own set of All-Natural Mr. Sprinkles .

And the battle begins…

Mr. Sprinkles

It’s a fight to the finish.

And the green corner wins in a sprinkles smackdown!

Now for the good news…
It’s a super sprinkles giveaway!

Mr. Sprinkles sent me some samples for using their product on the Martha Stewart show and I can’t possibly make my way through them all, so I thought I would share them with you. I have three sets of All-Natural Rainbow and Chocolate Sprinkles to give away. Don’t worry I’m keeping some for myself.

I wonder how many of the good sprinkles you would have to eat for it to actually be bad for you? My guess is a lot!
I’m all for anything natural and good for you, but I’m not so picky that I won’t buy “bad” for you sprinkles!
Any sprinkle is a friend of mine!

I like them “good for me”, as long as the confection they’re decorating is GOOD!

I choose the good, sprinkles should be a treat anyway so if you only eat them once in awhile, what’s the harm in some artificial-ness??
They are good on ice cream, cupcakes, cookies and toast w/ honey…yes I am a little weird…

I actually prefer Good for you – not quite as popular, but it’s true…

I think sprinkles have to be good! They usually go on something that isn’t good for you so why cheap out on the good stuff at the very end!!!

Those look fun, I haven’t seen them. I think my kids would love the bottle and the treat! I like the colors of the “Good for you”, looks like a good color combo for fall! Plus then I will know if good for you is worth “purchasing” ;o)

It’s too bad I just learned about this site. I would like to get some of those for my cupcake inventions. I’m really young but my passion for baking is just as great as any adults. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing what wonderful creations you have made. It’s fun to see your work, as its better than many many peoples. You could probably become a proffesional pastry chef or something. Cupcakes rule!
