Andw told me something wonderful yesterday.
In the UK, as well as in Australia and New Zealand...
SPRINKLES ARE CALLED
"HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS."
aaaah I can't contain my giggles!
Wiki of course has a whole article devoted to sprinkle-nomenclature. It goes on to say that "hundreds and thousands" typically refer to the spherical type of sprinkles, while "sugar strands" are... just that.
That's adorable. I'm going to have to find some way to get my Aussie or NZ friends to talk about sprinkles.
Question: do you think they think it's funny we call them sprinkles?
