I realized that fruit cocktail (in pear juice, not syrup) for dessert is actually really, really sweet! It has been about a week since I've had anything sugarry. We have been "treating" ourselves to sugar-free Jell-O for dessert, which is also really good. But boy that fruit was SWEET!
It made me think - I have always been a big fan of chocolate. ANY kind of chocolate. And I know others have tasted a chocolate dessert and said something like, "Whoa, that's really rich", and I didn't get that at all. Is that because I was so used to eating chocolate daily that its sweetness/richness didn't really register with me?
