Sprinkles vs 100s & 100s

Yesterday grade 5H participated in the Great Fairy Bread debate – Are Sprinkles or 100’s & 1000’s the real way to make Fairy Bread.

Students researched, came up with 4 supporting arguments and then presented to the class before completing the all important taste test. The verdict was Fairy Bread is made with 100’s & 1000’s, Sprinkles belong on ice cream.
