Wednesday Trivia: The Mystery of Your Sweet Tooth

vampire-cupcake_300Halloween is the holiday of abundant sweets and a problematic lack of willpower (at least, it’s a problem if you’ve got cavity-prone teeth like me). I came across this story in The New York Times that has some very interesting info: Your sugar cravings are predominantly genetic but your preferred sweet “seems to be primarily a learned behavior, a function of one’s upbringing”—so yes, you can definitely blame your family on this one.

You can read more fascinating facts on the sweet tooth here, or you can immediately start browsing these delicious bar cookie recipes. Either way.
