I'm a savoury gal. I find that I'm really picky when it comes to sweets and can usually go without.

I prefer a little sweet with my savory. Fried Chicken would never have a more suitable partner than Waffles. A slice of American Apple Pie with the quintessential melted slice of cheese; ect.
Generally speaking though, I tend to favor savory. However, I do sometimes have a knarly sweet tooth about once a month.

Savory for sure. I do not have a sweet tooth, and I prefer desserts with an edge of citrus or dark chocolate flavor.

I really like both. Usually after something savory, I crave a dessert...and then something savory again like chips. It never ends. One of my favorites is to mix salty peanuts with melted chocolate and add a pinch of salt on top. It is the best of both worlds.

I love savoury food, particularly really spicy food. In my case generally the more chilli the better. Although, I do really love ice cream and chocolate, which are definitely my comfort food.

I prefer savory to satisfy my hunger, but I do have a sweet tooth at times!

I love savory but sometimes I get a sweet tooth and I eat too many sweet foods which lead to a sugar rash and makes me quit sugar for another month.

Definitely savory. My little tummy can’t handle all that sweetness, same with my tastebuds 😛😛.

This definitely depends on the mood I'm in. However, I'd say I crave savory much more often than sweets. Especially since I started eating healthier overall. I love cooking savory food too!

Sweets. Definitely sweets. I love any kind of chocolate. Sometimes I will eat something really sweet, then something salty, then sweet, then salty. It's not a good circle to be in. Haha. I don't really eat ice cream that often. If I do it is normally with cake or brownies. My favorite is red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.

It really depends? Sometimes I prefer sweets and could drown in chocolate, but often I like salty stuff much more, like chips. Mostly depends on my mood though, so it can be quite fun if only one of this is at home

Sweet! I have a huge sweet tooth. If it's sweet, I eat it. Sometimes I'll be in the mood for savory, but then after that I'll want something sweet to go with it.
