  • Being a native Bostonian I called them Jimmies. Now that I live in PA, I call them Sprinkles. My husband (from NJ) jokingly picks on me for the differences in what I called certain things--like "rotaries" (aka "circle"); "break down lane" (aka "shoulder"), "Frappe" (aka "ice cream shake" or a "Bulkie" (aka "deli roll")!!! LOL :o)

  • I said I heard some people think that it is a racial slur ... whether or not it's true, I wouldn't use the term just in case someone thought it was. I met several people when i went away to school that thought calling the sprinkles, "jimmies" was racist ... that's all I was saying ... sorry
