Hello, all!

Ramble of the Day

I did not expect to ask myself yesterday what the difference between American and British sprinkles were, but an ordeal at a bakery in Leeds meant begged the question.

This set of screenshots is genuinely amusing, despite the fact that I feel very bad for Get Baked. There are just a lot of small, innocently funny moments in this journey, though. Some of the things I laughed or chuckled at as I read:

  • Having the context of what Get Baked sells makes all the difference when the writer(s) mention Bruce. It’s easy to assume Bruce is a dessert, but seeing it without the context is hilarious.
  • I completely understand the concept of having illegal sprinkles, but it is funny to classify sprinkles as unlawful.
  • This is less so a commentary on the funny aspects of this series of posts, but I am genuine when I say I am interested in the discourse of British v. American sprinkles. I never thought about possible differences in sprinkles, and now I’m curious. (I did a quick Google search and have found little on the topic so far.)
  • Again, maybe less funny, but it feels wild to me to report someone for illegal sprinkles. It seems a little bit mean-spirited.

It made me curious about the Get Baked products that featured sprinkles once upon a time, and I found a picture of the Birthday Bruce. It looks delightful, honestly.

I left myself a note during yesterday’s Hoddle to consider not rambling about Popeyes so I wouldn’t get hungry. I may need to extend this warning to cakes, because I wish I could have a bite of that cake.

tl;dr: There’s a bakery in Leeds that was using illegal sprinkles.
