Why Do We Crave Sweets?

When I was young, my mom used to joke about our "dessert stomachs." It seemed like no matter how big our dinner was and how much we refused to eat our greens because we were so stuffed, there was always room for ice cream...or a few cookies...or a slice of cake. It's still a feeling that happens today, years after my mom stopped being sure I ate my dinner before dessert. And I'm sure many others have experienced that sensation. You know you're not hungry; your stomach feels plenty full, but you're still crazing something sweet. Why do sweets have such a hold over us?!
