I almost always find ice cream too sweet, but still want it?

I almost always find ice cream too sweet, like the recipe is off or something. I have to add liberal amounts of cinnamon to vanilla ice cream to mute the sweetness, and often tahini to chocolate ice cream. These are good additions, but I really wish I didn't have to do it. It's not that I don't enjoy sweets- I just wish they were less sweet. I love ending my meals with 85 dark chocolate and dried fruit, but sometimes I want some think creamy like ice cream. I have the same issue with other desserts as well. I mostly have to bake my own desserts to enjoy them. Does anyone else have this issue, and do you have a solution? Why do desserts have to be quite so sweet?
