About This Quiz

The culinary world is filled with all kinds of unique flavors and textures that can be categorized as sweet or savory. For the purpose of this sugary quiz, we're going to explore some of the sweet flavors that you may (or may not be) familiar with!
But here's a question for you to ponder: Is there a correlation between dessert preferences and career paths? We'd like to think so, and we'll give you an example to prove it. Let's say that you work as a nurse for a living. This type of job role requires long hours, so you may crave foods and desserts that will give you an energy boost throughout the day. But you may also be more aware of your health since you work in the medical field, which means that you may want desserts that aren't too heavy in sugar. Thus, your dessert preferences may include lemon yogurt pound cake, banana bread, mini ice cream sandwiches, and citrus-flavored icebox bars. But this is just one example, as there are many different jobs and desserts in this world! So whether you love dark chocolate, extravagant desserts or just a simple snickerdoodle cookie, we're going to guess what type of job you have right now!
