    Default Sweet Tooth

    Would you say that you have a sweet tooth? Have you found that your sweet tooth has faded as you've gotten older?

    I usually never get cravings for sweets...I'm more for the salty foods like fries and what not. I'd take a fry over chocolate any day. I used to have a horrible sweet tooth. Changing my overall diet seemed to completely get rid of the cravings.

    I have always had a major sweet tooth, but it seems to have faded a bit over the last couple of years [hard to believe if you've seen the amount of candy/cakes/cookies/sweet junk I've been known to consume, but trust me it's less than it once was!]. I wonder if it will fade into oblivion, eventually... can't say I'd mind if it did. Self-control gets pretty difficult to maintain around all the dilectable treats of the world; I'd much rather just not want them at all

    "A fry"? As in, just one? Wow, that's impressive. I'd be more inclined to eat the whole box's worth!

    Yes I have a sweet tooth. I've always preferred sweet to salty overall, but if I eat too much sweet stuff, I truly start to not feel so good. so knowing that's going to happen keeps it in check. I do probably have at least one "treat" per day. For example, a cup of hot chocolate or a handful of chocolate chips.

    I've always had a 'salt tooth'.

    I've never been that into sweets, even as a kid; in fact I probably liked them even less as a kid. I hated cakes and donuts, I would even refuse to eat cake on my own birthday. I was picky when it came to ice cream or milkshakes, and I'd only eat the chocolate or mint flavored stuff. I liked candy, on Halloween or easter, but other than that I got to have it rarely. I liked sweet drinks such as soda and kool-aid, but my parents didn't allow me to drink that stuff.

    I didn't like a lot of bready things as a kid, even in things like pizza, which I refused to eat. The only bread I'd eat was French bread or white bread in sandwiches. As a kid I loved vegetables (I'd eat every single kind), rice, home made macaroni and cheese, Mexican food (especially enchiladas), cheese-anything, mashed potato's, Asian food, chips, chicken, steak, salad, fruit (especially mango, and watermelon) ect. I loved anything pickled, such as olives, pickles, beats, peppers, kimchi, ect. any of those things were always a big treat to me.

    My taste hasn't really changed, except I'll eat pretty much anything now, and I've developed a big liking for cheap candy, such as jawbreakers, and twizzlers. On rare occasion I'll eat chocolate, but sometimes it makes me feel ill. I'll eat cake now, but only so much... I love cheese cake and backlava though. Still picky with ice cream flavors. I think I'll always keep a salt tooth.

    SILK chocolate soymilk
    Some chocolate chip cookies
    Chocolate milk shakes
    Chocolate icecream
    Current sweet teeth. I have to make sure I limit my intake of SILK, it's heavenly.
    And also, lately, 100% juices.

    And ripe tomatoes (which are out of season now pretty much)


    I think my sweet teeth have just gotten more healthy. I just had a total POS cookie that came in a two-pack. It was so manufactured and doctored. I wanted a cookie, so I found this package in the vending machine (even though it's not the kind I usually get), and at first it tasted ok, but then it just started tasting so...... fake. Like I was eating plastic or some sort of mutated synthesized substance. I couldn't bear to eat the second cookie in the two-pack, so I decided to toss it out. Before I did I looked at the back of the package and saw how morphed and processed and cybernetically engineered it was. My body was revolting against me, and I obeyed.

    I can't eat oreos much anymore, only sometimes with milk. And chips ahoy are no good either. It has to be home made or something with decent quality ingredients. My sweet tooth is still there, though.

    YES! To your whole list. I adore chocolate Silk soymilk. and I only really like the ripe tomatoes that are either from someone's garden or this certain kind they sell at the store called Naturesweet. all others don't taste quite right to me.

    okay, number one: no, too rich
    number two: too cold
    number three: too heavy
    number four: we have a winner, as long as it's liquid like a shake and not more solid like a mousse.

    Huh, that's funny, that's pretty much how I feel as well.
    I don't mind shakes though.


    PS: although I don't think the icecream/thing is too cold, just not my kind.

    I'd love it in the summer but I'm in Chicago and it's freezing cold right now, so I don't feel like eating something icy. the shake is different somehow because it's creamy.

    He's ESFj, I am one of his elves. He likes ISTp's, we work hard and are very precise with details. I'll take care of your letter and make sure you get everything you want if Santa decides that you deserve it. INTj kids are his weakness though so you might even get some extra gifts as a surprise.

    It's no good without the egg though, plus it mostly cooks itself when you mix everything up in the pot with the steamed rice and chili pepper sauce. It's such a complex array of savory flavors.

    Seriously though... you should all check out a Korean restaurant if you ever get the chance. My friends got me hooked.

    I have a pretty strong sweettooth, and I'm not sure if it's weakened through the years. As a child my Mom tried to keep us kids away from sugar - no sodas, very little candy, lots of organic produce and tofu, etc. But I went to school with my home-baked whole-wheat bread and thermos of purified water and very strongly envied all the other kids with their store-bought white bread and sodas (well, a lot of them drank milk, but I've always had a sensitivity to dairy).
    My Dad would work long hours during the week, and often be on business trips, so many were the weekends when he would take my brother and I on a leisurely drive around the twisty, turny, hilly, narrow backcountry roads in East Tennessee in his project cars, a set of 3 International Travelalls that by switching out parts he could usually keep 1 or 2 of which running. Zak and I lived for these few hours Dad would devote to us ... plus, we learned that we could beg for him to stop at a convenience store, and he would buy us a candy bar and a soda, and I am frankly embarrassed to admit how much esteem he gained by this base transaction. (My Mom found out about it, too, and harangued us with a useless rant about how hard she worked keeping us healthy, and yet here Dad was "buying" our favor with something destructive!)
    Long story short, it really set up sweets as something to be bargained for and closely hoarded when gained. Instead of being an occasional treat, it was something I felt "denied," and I overcompensated by taking more than a reasonable amount whenever I thought I could get away with it.
    During the rest of my childhood, I spent embarrassing sums of my allowance - and once I got a job, my paychecks - on candy. I even started walking to school so that I could stop at the convenience store on the way. I even remember a band trip where me and my friends each drank a six pack of Coke and ate handfuls of pixie stix - it was like our blood was boiling, and we got off the bus, drove to the marina, and jumped in the water even though it was January at 11pm at night! It's astounding that I didn't give myself diabetes.
    Over the past several years, I have focused on re-framing candy's role in my life. But every time I try to cut back past a certain point, I suffer a sort of regression, and "pig out." I'm not sure if I'm just playing into some psychological hangup, or if my sweet tooth is just naturally strong enough that even with all the fruit I eat, I still crave more sugar.

    yes, liquorice is disgusting to me as well as coconut. the texture of things tends to gross me out, not always the taste. i dont like nuts for that reason.
