I don't know how to construct a poll and maybe it's not practical just to find out what desserts people have NOT liked.

I went to a Chinese restaurant somewhere in a Caribbean resort and the dessert menu was woefully limited. I ordered leechee (sp?) nuts which tasted sort of like melon balls in a thick, syrupy sauce, but felt and almost LOOKED like eyeballs. Ick!

LOL, just goes to show you that vive la difference is alive and well. I had lychee nuts for dessert in Manhattan once and thought it one of the most refreshing desserts I had ever had.

But I will always be an ice cream wino.

It was so good that I could have eaten the whole dessert by myself. There is something about cream puffs that I cannot resist. There is not much to them, but if I see one in a bakery I just cannot resist getting at least one.

I too love fruit and cheese, or just fresh fruit. But then again, a proper cheesecake, or a great pie... Favorite fruit for desert? Mellon, especially cantaloupe.
