Got an insatiable sweet tooth? You are in good company.
Today, more people enjoy dessert at all times of the day. According to a recent study, while dessert was once a special treat after dinner now it's an ever-present craving, reinforced by the ubiquity of sweets that appear in breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
