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.

Items like chocolate-covered fruit or sweet granola-filled breakfast parfaits make it seem like sweets go with every meal. Many Americans are not only indulging in sweets several times a day, but also sometimes eating them in the place of real meals.

Check out the slideshow above to find out why Americans are eating more sweets throughout the day.
