I don't mind sprinkles... or jimmies.  They add to the festive aspect of indulging in donuts sometimes for me.  Since they don't contribute much to the flavor (maybe a bit to the texture) I think they're all about "eating with your eyes" before you eat with your mouth.  They kind of scream "you're about to eat something fun!!!"

That's what I think of as a Boston cream, though maybe without the hundreds and thousands. The cream inside a Boston cream should be more like vanilla pudding or custard than whippped cream, IMO.

Around here "Boston cream" usually has a sort of yellowish tint to it. The "Manager's Special" filling is more white, but it's definitely not whipped cream or the cream they usually put in "cream-filled doughnuts. By itself the "Manager's Special" filling is not particularly appetizing looking, but it has a pronounced vanilla flavor.

we might possibly call it "New-Variant Boston Cream with Jimmies"

I personally can't stand those tiny little candy spheres that make up non-pareils.  They're not exactly edible, and they make my teeth hurt, they're so sweet.

I like those on sugar cookies.

I like them too, but they are messy. They are always falling off and then rolling around on the floor. But they sure are good!

The solution to that is to embed them in frosting.

Tell you what. Aren't non-pareils spherical and jimmies usually oblong?  ???

You are correct.  Nonpareils look like this.







and these are "sprinkles" or "jimmies".
