“Sprinkles are for winners”

"Sprinkles are for winners” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “@EmilyAWalker - good point, sprinkles are for winners!” was posted on Twitter by E.MO.TION.AL on September 11, 2009. “@__BlackRanger__ sprinkles are for winners” was posted on Twitter by eryka on April 10, 2013.

“Sprinkles are for winners” was spoken by the character Flo in a television commercial for Progressive insurance. The commercial was introduced at a Content Marketing World breakout discussion on September 9, 2014, and was aired on television on January 1, 2015.

Progressive’s Jeff Charney promotes disruptive thinking at Content Marketing World 2014
Updated May 11, 2015 at 4:28 PM; Posted September 9, 2014 at 4:15 PM
By Janet H. Cho, The Plain Dealer
CLEVELAND, Ohio—“More has changed in the last five years than in the last 100 years combined,” said Jeff Charney, chief marketing officer for Progressive, speaking at a Content Marketing World breakout discussion on Tuesday morning.
(...)
As proof, Charney showed two versions of a commercial Progressive hasn’t yet released, of Flo consoling a colleague who lost a customer after showing him Progressive’s rate with a competitor’s. When she offers to take the coworker out for ice cream, he brightens and asks: “With sprinkles?” Flo sadly shakes her head and says: “Sprinkles are for winners.”
