Rainbow sprinkles, also called ‘jimmies’ in The Northeast, have created many Funfetti fanatics! Rainbow sprinkles are all over the internet. Pinterest and Instagram helped us to share our numerous photos of all things Funfetti. 


Funfetti History

Funfetti began in 1989 when Pillsbury introduced a Funfetti cake mix. The white  cake mix included rainbow sprinkles that baked into the cake mix. The sprinkles melted into streaks and dots of bright colors. Thank you, Pillsbury, for launching the rainbow sprinkle explosion!

Funfetti cakes were definitely the rage of birthday parties in the 1990’s. 

The Funfetti generation loves their rainbow sprinkles in and on top of nearly anything-cakes, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, ice cream, martinis and our personal favorite being cookies!

Funfetti cookies are just plain fun and make any celebration more festive!
