    I’d rather have another glass of wine than a dessert, for the most part, but I like sweets well enough. 😀

    No – I don’t like to eat sweets after my meal. I like sweets, though.

    For the most part, I don’t eat dessert after meals.. i maybe only have a dessert once a week. Last night we made/had cookie-brownies which were AMAZING.

    Fi normally eats a couple of scoops of icecream every night after dinner, or a big glass of really chocolately milk [im talking like 2x chocolateier than the average person would drink!].

    I’m not so much a dessert person as in it is something pre-made that follows a meal. I’m more a chocolate at any time kind of person. I eat chocolate throughout the entire day. It’s delicious.

    I’m not a fan of desserts.  Im not a big sweets person.  I’ll usually crave chips and salty snacks over sweets.

    We don’t normally have dessert, but when I do I want it to be fabulous. I am so often disappointed when we are dining out and the dessert is just “meh”.

    I am of the opinion that if I am going to splurge on the calories, fat, carbs and $$, every bite of that dessert needs to be fabulous. Many otherwise great restaurants fall short in this area.

    I loooooooove dessert.  Major sweet tooth.  However, I also try and have some willpower…I won’t always have dessert after a meal.

    If I’ve eaten a proper sit-down meal then I appreciate a dessert course, but I don’t like it to be overly sweet or rich.  I’m perfectly happy to take a glass of Sauternes and the cheese course as dessert.  I also like fruit as a dessert course as well.

    @julies1949: Absolutely true–and it seems like desserts that are “obvious” (cakes, chocolate things, etc.) tend to be most likely to disappoint.  That’s why I like to see a few unexpected things on the dessert menu; it gives me some indication that this course is taken seriously.

    I love sweet things, but usually I only want a few bites and that’s all I need. I agree with some other ladies though, the sweets have to be really good or I’m not interested. I have extremely high standards for anything that has cake, and if that cake is dry I’m not above spitting it back out.. 

    I’m weird though and after I eat something sweet I like to eat a plain carb (like bread) to get the taste out of my mouth.

    It depends, I prefer my desserts chocolatey and can’t stand mostpastries etc, but I do like having something sweet at the end of the meal.

    For me, the dessert has to be fruit themed and light to be anything that will tempt me. I’m not into cheesecakes, or anything creamy with heavy flavouring. 

    My favourite dessert is a small, decadent, and home-made dark chocolate truffle. It’s not too sweet, can have a savoury element (random flavour example: jalepeno and lime flavour) and it’s just enough to give me satisfaction without making me feel full. It’s the perfect end to a great meal.

    I love sweets! Sadly, I would give up an entire meal just for a piece of cake…haha
