It has to be said that, in my experience, the assumptions  I've read on this List about the proper meaning of a 'Berliner' are completely spurious. 

Kennedy without doubt proclaimed, much to the bemusement of the natives 'I am a jam doughnut'. Any casual glance around one of Berlin's many bakery shops will reveal neat little piles of Berliners lovingly assembled for sale to said natives.
