    My wife’s from Connecticut and apparently in her corner of New England they call them “shots”

    I am from New York so they are simply sprinkles to me.

    I was always under the impression that “jimmies” were chocolate and “sprinkles” are the multicolor toppings. I’m still working on remembering that a “milkshake” in RI doesn’t have any ice cream in it- that’s a Cabinet

    • Well yes, they are the chocolate sprinkles – hence why I kept the entire drawing entirely black and white. Isn’t a RI milkshake funny? I went to boarding school in Newport and always thought that was odd.

    er, just FYI, “jimmies” is an incredibly racist term. chocolate sprinkles were called jimmies, as in black people.
