Craving sweet tasting sweets

Most of us have experienced food cravings at one time or another. I dare guessing that for the majority of us these cravings were for sugary food or drink or to sweet tasting food or drink (those that are artificially or naturally sweetened).

Cravings are really common, especially among women, and our innate desire for sweet tastes means we are most likely to crave foods high in sugar or sweetened such as cakes, biscuits and, of course, chocolate.
