Watching The Great British Bake Off, and it's cracking me up in this challenge - which is their idea of an 'American Pie' - as they're talking about how sweet American desserts are (One of the judges being quite nose up in the air on the subject.). I must protest! Some of the sweetest desserts I ever had were on visits to the UK. We definitely do not have the market cornered on sweet!

Well, we did invent Candy Corn White Chocolate M&Ms...and I'm so glad we did...

Plus, I know the Doctor talks about the Scots and their frying but didn't we invent...the Krispy Kreme burger?

That first thing? UHG!! LOL

Yes, they fry Mars bars in Scotland. I avoided those. But I did eat the Sticky Toffee Pudding, and the Treacle Sponge. Oh my! SWEET!

They should talk. The English eat more sugar (especially hard candy) per capita than any other country in the world.

I think it was his dismissing American pies as too sweet after saying "I had a piece of an American pie once, didn't want another." He has ONE PIECE? and writes off an entire baked good? Geesh.

pagh, stupid man - but then reality compos thrive on people saying or doing stupid things, so I shouldn't be surprised!

Lol, I wonder what they'd say about Bosnian desserts, which are also very very sweet!

No, indeed. That would be Canada. :-D
