Dessert quirks: we all have them. Even if you don't have established quirks to point to, surely you've been guilty of strange dessert behavior in your life. In which case, even if you don't have a quirk, you've got a dessert confession
This post celebrates those quirky dessert moments and preferences.
I wrote most of these, but some of them were contributed by readers. So don't blame me if you disagree with the quirk, because I might not have written the one you're focused on.
Root beer floats gross me out. Not the taste, the texture.
The word "moist" grosses me out...
...but I can't think of another word that can accurately describe such a cake.
I once bought a grocery store birthday cake because I just wanted a cake to eat for breakfast all week. At the checkout, the cashier said "whose birthday is it?" and I responded "what are you talking about?". And then I realized...
After my wisdom teeth were taken out, I couldn't abide by cottage cheese and jell-o. On day 2, I mashed a cupcake in milk and ate it. And loved every morsel of the mush.
I could eat Pop-tarts every day. I'm not just saying that. I could eat them every single day.
I prefer vanilla to chocolate.
I find angel food cake a complete waste of my time.
Two words: quadruple stuf.
If I get on a kick, I will eat a dessert every day for weeks on end until I get tired of it.
I love eating ice cream for breakfast. I wish more ice cream shops opened at 9am.
I don't like chocolate covered fruit.
Dunking: not a fan.
White chocolate: love the stuff.
I once ate an entire sleeve of Thin Mints as a child and have never really cared for them since.
I know you're not supposed to lick batter that contains uncooked egg, but I do. I haven't died yet.
I don't like flan.
Salt: I put it on everything. Including brownies, cake, and ice cream.
Too many chocolate chips in my cookie and I'm totally turned off. I'd rather have too few than too many.
There is no such thing as "too much frosting". And yet...frosting shots gross me out.
