A new survey says Brazilians are 69% more likely to have sweets instead of fruit (or nothing) for dessert. Nine percent declared they eat dessert because "it's part of our culture." My sweet tooth has been explained.
According to the survey, the champions of Brazilian desserts are:
#1 - Flan (Pudim)
#2 - Dulce de leche (Doce de leite)
(Winner in Minas Gerais)
#3 - Pie (Torta)
Despite its image of being a country of beach bodies, almost half of Brazilians are overweight and almost 15% are obese.
