What's Your Preference: Sweet or Savory?

What's Your Preference: Sweet or Savory?

Yesterday evening over dinner, my cousin and I got into a discussion about sweet foods versus savory ones. He said he would take a dessert any day over something savory. I love them both but would definitely reach for salty things — among them chips and salsa, olives, and pickles — first. What about you? Which do you prefer?

i'm kind of on the fence. there are times that i really want something sweet - yet i don't really eat sweets all that much. typically for me it's a savory/salty type thing. i have low blood pressure so i'm always being told to eat more salt anyway.

That's a hell of a healthy weakness, mondaymoos! :D A lot more so than my weekly prosciutto binges...

Definitely sweets - especially if chocolate-filled or chocolate-covered!

I prefer hot salsa or black olives etc. But I do have a weakness for dark chocolate.

I usually am a complete chocolate consumer but a sweet/savory snack like salted caramel or chocolate-covered pretzels is the best of both worlds...although some barley nugget cereal with cream, a bit of sugar and some crisply fried bacon is good too (it sounds horrid but it is sooo yummy!)...drat it, now I'm thinking I'm hungry!;)

Nothing beats freshly popped and buttered popcorn for me..so I had to say savoury, though I really like chocolate-covered peanuts. I am not a big sweet person at all anymore, except for chocolate/nutty things, and the occasional piece of cheesecake. But popcorn? I go mad for it. :D

Savory! I constantly battle my urge for all things salty.

I have to fight the chocolate cravings when I see it, but I don't usually want lollies unless I actually see them. Savoury carbs on the other hand... :) Cheese and bread are my big weaknesses. Especially if they're combined into a toasted sandwich. And cheese scones. And pizza. Now I'm hungry.

sweets any day! Don't really care for salty stuff. Last year when I went to the doctor she did some bloodwork and my sodium was low.

It depends what day it is. Sometimes, I have a giant sugar tooth; other times, I'm going for the salty snacks.
