In another thread I already gave an extensive (though not complete) list of all the different types of sprinkles we have in The Netherlands. Sprinkles are an everyday bread? (is there an English word for something you put on your bread, but is not a spread?*)
They are found in almost every household, and they can be eaten on any type of bread.
This vacation I spend a weekend with an Irish group. They were talking about 100's & 1000's, I had never heard of them before, but figured out the meaning by context.
