It's amazing how so many desserts these days taste like NOTHING BUT SUGAR. I mean, seriously, pie, cake, cookies, take your pick, they all taste the same, like a bag of white sugar.
I've even had Key Lime Pie, an expensive one, made at a fancy restaurant, that had no taste other than sweetness. Same with cheesecake. Seriously?
Friends look at me oddly when I compliment a dessert by saying, "I can actually taste it!"
