Hi. My name is Jack, and I’m an addict. (This is where you say, “Hi, Jack!” and I raise my hands in the air as if I’m being mugged… It’s a terrible joke, especially at airports. I blame the sugar. It made me do it.)
Having a sweet tooth isn’t necessarily bad unto itself. In fact, our palettes evolved so that we would crave the foods we need. Our differentiated taste buds helped us to survive during the eons without consistent and constant food sources.
