That is interesting Charlie, as I am usually not a sweets fan. I much prefer savory. The sweetness, for me, in challah is sweet, but not sugary sweet or sickeningly sweet.

This is how I would describe it, too. It's certainly not "too" sweet. And not even as sweet as my grandmother's homemade yeast rolls. In fact, I love it best smothered in homemade honey butter (local honey and freshly churned butter). Yum!!

Taste is a very personal thing. I buy razin chlah in our local store and have insead of cake with a cup of tea. Regular Chalah is not as sweet, but still I much rather have good old french or italian bread from that same bakery.

"My" traditional Challah is not too sweet for dinner, or dinner rolls, and I think it is a fantastic bread for sandwiches.

Now you're making me hungry for it. I think I shall put some to rise tonight.

Not just that, but each bread recipe is unique as well, so it is very possible that the challah Charlie has had was much sweeter than the challah someone else has had. I have had some that were not sweet at all and others that were quite sweet and everything in between. When I think of the challah I would want though, there is a sweetness to it.
