Sprinkles exist in groups of singular sprinkle, which is a tiny, colored cylinder of sugar. They are generally placed upon sweet things in order to decorate them and make them wild. They're often made in many colors.
Sprinkles don't offer too much flavor, and occasionally ruin the texture of respectable foods. They remain in use primarily for their visual contribution.
Sprinkles became an official snack on March 24th 2015.
