what's wrong with mexico's desserts? / mazatlan

Hi Hounds. I am new here, but wanted to see if anyone here has any idea why the desserts of Mexico are pretty universally nasty?

We've only been a few times, but find this to be perplexing. Is it a problem with accessible dairy? butter? I only think of that because we've also noticed that there doesn't seem to be any milk or cream around for coffee, just the canned stuff.

Are we missing the gourmand boat here? I've made a list of potential restaurants from what I've found on these boards, and I can't say that our last trip there, made with 10 others in tow, hit the high spots of Mazatlan eateries, so I'm hoping for better this trip.

But the desserts . . . ugh. We passed a marvelous looking bakery in old town. I went back to snag something for the fresh shrimp binge we were planning for supper. I sampled a few of these lovely looking treats only to find that they were as tasteless as what we'd been finding in the restaurants: dry, tasting of fake ingredients.

Anyone have any ideas as to what/s wrong? Are there any good sweets in Mexico?

Thanks for your input . . . BAB
