Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the sugar content in desserts has increased dramatically lately? I used to could pop in a coffee shop and have a small muffin or cookie and enjoy it, but now I normally take one bite and have to spit it in a napkin. For example, carrot cake, which is supposed to be not very sweet at all, is now so sweet I can't stand it. My mom always explained to me that the recipe gets it's sugar from the natural sweetness of the carrots. Who are they catering this disgustingly sweet crap to? Five year olds? I don't eat this stuff very often now so maybe my taste buds are more sensitive to sweets (which is probably a good thing), but I can't believe that's the sole reason.
