The American sequins contained a food coloring additive which is not approved for most uses in the UK. It’s only approved for use in UK cocktail cherries and candied cherries.
Rich Myers, the owner of the bakery, said: “At first I thought it was a joke. I thought it was someone playing a prank. It really is a pretty intimidating process to be interviewed by Trading Standards. It’s not something you would expect when running a small bakery.
Myers said the ban had a negative impact on his business as the glitter was used to decorate his most popular bakery products. He bought the glitter from a UK wholesaler when he started his business, totally unaware that it was banned.
Myers said, “British glitter just isn’t good enough, it’s just not worth using. Until I can find a legal sprinkler that’s worth using, we’ll keep using something else.
The British bakery has since won the sympathy of those online who also think a ban on sprinkling is ridiculous.
