Curious about "non-pareils"

We were given a gift basket with many kinds of chocolates, and one of the boxes was for "non-pareils." I've seen these before, but have never understood the name. I looked up "pareils" which means "similar" in the candy is "not similar" to regular candy? Is that the origin? Does anyone know? I guess it's the little white candy balls all over the chocolate that makes it "not similar"??
