American food gone sweet?

fara | Jul 23, 2006 07:20 PM

I was reading another post about ordering dessert first. I think that would be great if "savory" hadn't turned into sweet and savory in so many dishes. I never eat dessert out because by that point in the meal I'm already sick of the sweeteners they put in food. I've also noticed a trend among home cooks to put sweet raspberry flavors, honey, or even lots of ketchup in things. (I'm not talking about using a flavor like unsweetened cocoa). Every product seems to have high fructose corn syrup, which worse for you or not, desensitizes you to sugar.
Do you all ever get grossed out by an accumulation of sweet flavors in restaurants or in people's homes for dinner?
