What is a sweet tooth? What does it mean to have a sweet tooth? Here is the definition to shed some light on both of these questions: 

A "sweet tooth" is a colloquial term that refers to a person's fondness or preference for sweet foods, particularly desserts. It can also refer to a person's tendency to crave sweet things or a taste for sweet flavors. The term is often used as a figure of speech and is not a medical term. 

Now that you have clarification on what a sweet tooth is, it will be much easier to identify those around you that fit that description. The odds are that you or your bestie are afflicted with a tooth that rules your taste buds and constantly whispers "sweet nothings" (see what we did there?) in your ear. AKA makes you want, crave, and need sugary morsels to satisfy your sweet cravings. 

If this describes you, you should be proud to shout, "I have a sweet tooth!" for all to hear. 

This is good news! Finding gifts for these particular friends is easy-peasy, fun, and guaranteed to delight and impress your bestie. So whether it is a Birthday, a housewarming party, Christmas, an idle Tuesday, or congratulating them on landing their dream job, giving the gift of sweet-scrumptious goodness will always be a magnificent idea. 

However, you don't have to stick to the "normal" candies found in your local grocery stores. There are so many other unique and wonderfully sugary delights available. 

Here are a few ideas to get you started on putting together the perfect gift for your sweet tooth bestie:  

Now, if you are one of "those people" who can whip up baked goods that cause mouths to water, this is the perfect opportunity to show off your skills. Homemade baked goods will show your friend that you care. It takes time, effort, and a healthy splash of love to put together a basket of homemade baked goods for a loved one. 


How about using your skills to put together an assortment of off-the-wall but delicious flavored cupcakes, such as bubble gum, raspberry cannoli, funfetti, coffee cake, orange creamsicle, margarita, S'mores, or watermelon? Just to name a few. 


There is no reason why you have to stick to a basic chocolate brownie recipe. Instead, have some fun, get fancy, and try your hand at some new and unknown brownie recipes. 

Here are some examples:

The possibilities are endless.

Freeze Dried Candy

Thanks to good ol' fashioned science, we have been blessed with the ability to freeze-dry our favorite candies. Freeze drying removes moisture from the candy while preserving its flavor. 

What Does FreezeDried Candy Taste Like? 

The taste of freeze dried candy is similar to the original candy. However, some people find that freeze dried candy has a different texture. It is more fluffy and melts in your mouth. And the best part is it intensifies the flavor and enhances the overall experience. 

Here are some lip-smackingly delish candies that you'll want to combine to create a gift that is sure to make all your "sweet tooth" bestie's dreams come true:
