Recently we had this conversation about personal preferences, the way that, as we have
aged matured, our tastes have changed as well.
As kids, we used to be all about the sweetest treat. We ate the frosting first off our cupcakes, put extra chocolate syrup on our ice cream, and spent all our allowance money on Hubba Bubba and Laffy Taffy.
Now, as adults, we are trending away from the super-sticky, extra sweet treats. We still love sweets and treats, but our tastes these days run more toward more sophisticated, richer desserts. We actively seek out things with contrasting flavors: tart balsamics with sweet fruits, ground chile with chocolate. We can’t wait to try a new snack mix with sweet toffee and bacon or worcestershire. The new dessert recipes we want to make combine complex textures and tastes, that highlight and bring out the best in the diverse ingredients.
