Gratitude Post #12: Sweets That Taste Sweet

See this? It tastes as good as you’d imagine. A melding of tastes and textures, sweetly (thank you, pun) playing in your mouth. From the sweet and syrupy chocolate, to the dense, moist chocolately brownie (courtesy of my sister), with the rich whipped cream melting into the vanilla bean ice cream. All deliciously sweetened. Mmmmm…

In my experience, most Asians have an aversion to sweets. Dinner courses traditionally end with fruit, such as a nice plate of sliced oranges. It’s enough to make my sweet tooth cry.

Forget the obesity and diabetes factor as you consider enjoying a sweet that actually tastes sweet. In moderation, of course. But enjoy it, nonetheless. I certainly will.
