an appreciation for sweetness

Royal Air Maroc, Casablanca to New York
Breakfast service- coffee with milk and sugar, sweetened yogurt, pain au lait with a slice of cheese, pain au lait with pat of butter, mini Mars bar

Spicy food, fried food, boiled food, cold food, salty food, mashed food, can all be very divisive. Opinions run deep and the contentions can get political. Sweet food, however, seems to be a common denominator across all the world's cuisines, be it processed and refined and presented as a chocolate bar, or stirred into a beverage, or incorporated as a subtle note in baking bread. 
So, to sugar, and the magic it creates: thanks.
