  • wester  on  4/10/2014 at 1:55 AM

    Well, I've already quit sugar, but I sometimes have some creme fraiche with sweeteners for breakfast or dessert. So that's the thing I would quit if I had to really take out all things sweet.

  • Elnara  on  4/10/2014 at 2:48 AM

    mmmm caramel, which i guess is basically 100% sugar. LOL Mmmm fudge.

  • Suirauqa  on  4/10/2014 at 3:36 AM

    Any kind of cookie!

  • Titch  on  4/10/2014 at 6:30 AM

    I would really struggle cutting any sugar out of my diet, but the worst one would be Chocolate. I really do have a problem with sugar & would love to win this book to give me the strength to do it

  • decklededges  on  4/10/2014 at 8:05 AM

    What am I going to do with all my homemade jam? For those worried about chocolate, try the Francois Pralus 100% bar. It's sugar free, delicious and intense.

  • RickPearson54  on  4/10/2014 at 11:08 AM

    Dark chocolate truffles.

  • Kdmccul  on  4/10/2014 at 11:26 AM

  • ae.bell  on  4/10/2014 at 4:14 PM

    Probably chocolate chip cookies

  • Juliebs2  on  4/10/2014 at 4:19 PM

    Chocolate, especially when combined with coffee. Mmmm...

    Ice cream!

  • hollyglen  on  4/10/2014 at 4:52 PM

    So hard to pick one thing. Cookies, I guess. Or chocolate.

  • Taxlady  on  4/10/2014 at 6:10 PM

    Gummi bears. sigh.......

  • littleums  on  4/10/2014 at 6:17 PM

    I would say fruit would be the toughest sweet for me to eliminate completely. I am pretty sure that Sarah says it's okay to eat the low fructose fruits, but I'm not sure what she thinks regarding the higher fructose ones.

  • boardingace  on  4/10/2014 at 6:27 PM

    Ice cream or chocolate

    dark chocolate

  • kayanelson  on  4/10/2014 at 9:38 PM

    I have a big sweet tooth and enjoy my desserts. So all desserts, cookies the most though.

  • rahiscock  on  4/10/2014 at 9:47 PM

    Chocolate and oat cookies. And brownies. And chocolate cake. And chocolate mousse. And chocolate ice cream. And chocolate muffins. And chocolate dipped strawberries. I think there is a theme here.

  • mjrr  on  4/10/2014 at 11:12 PM

    Bendicks Bittermints. And fresh fruit. But the Bittermints.... now that would be really tough...

  • WandaFrederick  on  4/10/2014 at 11:46 PM

    Merengues. Sweet, crunchy, melt in your mouth delicious.

  • sailor  on  4/10/2014 at 11:46 PM

    eton mess

  • bevie19  on  4/11/2014 at 12:06 AM

    Chocolate, cookies, ice cream, pie, cake... You get the idea.

  • Kathymelb  on  4/11/2014 at 12:11 AM

    Lindt Macarons - finished cancer treatment today. I would treat myself a chocolate macaron after each Chemo session, it helped!

  • paulabucharles  on  4/11/2014 at 12:34 AM

    whatever sweet-sour pastry it's very hard for me to give up! :(

  • GillB  on  4/11/2014 at 3:50 AM

    Any kind of chocolate

  • ballen  on  4/11/2014 at 6:58 AM

    Definitely ice cream but dark chocolate is a very close second.

  • sgump  on  4/11/2014 at 7:07 PM

    Yes, ice cream. . . .

  • pgarcia  on  4/11/2014 at 8:54 PM

    Peeps!

  • slimmer  on  4/12/2014 at 6:56 AM

    Fortunately, I don't have much of a sweet tooth as far as desserts are concerned. But fruit ... some nutritionists consider them "sugar bombs," but I agree with the author that the other nutrients and fiber compensate for the sugar. I can't believe a healthy diet would eliminate fruit!

  • vickster  on  4/12/2014 at 7:59 AM

    Jam!

  • Annegreen  on  4/12/2014 at 7:02 PM

    Chocolate, because after it's not just a sweet, not even just a dessert and it's even more than an indulgence - it's stress relief medication. Otherwise I might have to turn to drugs!

  • Rosesrpink50  on  4/12/2014 at 11:49 PM

    Chocolate!

  • ldsalyer  on  4/13/2014 at 10:51 AM

    Brown Sugar is really hard for me, because I generally use natural sweeteners for most things, but it's hard to replace brown sugar in recipes!

  • madamepince  on  4/13/2014 at 11:41 AM

    Hmmm...Baked sweets -- cake, cookies, pie. They're complex in flavor & texture, so there's more to miss!

  • Kirstin_the_Kiwi  on  4/13/2014 at 10:19 PM

    Cookies

  • centraljersey  on  4/14/2014 at 6:24 PM

    I've tried, and I always miss baking. And chocolate. So chocolate chip cookies (and dough), a French chocolate yogurt cake, and that's just the start. But I do try to avoid sweets that really aren't worth the calories and sugar.

  • pokarekare  on  4/14/2014 at 7:03 PM

    Anything with chewy caramel in it!!! But I'm a good girl and try only to eat them when offered - I'm an OP [Other People's] caramel eater!

    I am a baker so this would be really hard since I love desserts. Probably homemade chocolate chip cookies.

  • Sarabclever  on  4/21/2014 at 3:25 PM

    dessert made with fruit....

  • ltsuk  on  4/21/2014 at 10:31 PM

    Lemon Meringue Pie

  • JanScholl  on  4/30/2014 at 1:02 AM

    I use very little sugar. I don't have a sweet tooth. My husband makes up for it. He eats my share. I tend to substitute other natural sweeteners instead but if a recipe MUST have sugar, it is always free trade organic. I pay more but I won't use grocery store sugar. There are sugar beet farms near me and they are disgusting.

  • susanb  on  4/30/2014 at 1:51 AM

  • Sausagetarian  on  4/30/2014 at 12:41 PM

    I love sweet-savory sauces like Mae Ploy, ketchup, and chutneys. I also love jams paired with cheese or nut butters. So it's not actually the straight-up desserts I would miss the most.

  • Flowerbelle  on  4/30/2014 at 3:15 PM

    chocolate mousse

  • nyc888nyc  on  4/30/2014 at 3:37 PM

    Growing up I am actually not a -sweet tooth- person. But unfortunately in my late fifty stage I just love sweets - oatsmeal breakfast, cookies, pastries and cakes which are NOT ALLOWED in my healthy diet. This is very difficult!

  • MelKettle  on  4/30/2014 at 11:08 PM

    While I'm grateful I don't have a sweet tooth, I do love chutney, fig paste and other sweet-savoury delights that go oh-so-well with cheese. Not sure if I could give that up...

  • Alstewed  on  4/30/2014 at 11:31 PM

    Brown sugar I think would be the hardest, as I use it a lot in cooking. And I do love maple syrup-based sauces and creams!
