Question Wednesday: casual theme today :P


**Okay I'm posting in Beijing Time again. It's Wednesday morning here.**
Call me lazy, but today's question is going to be quite simple and casual, nothing to wrack your brain for. Bum bum bum... today's question is: why do we crave sweets?

Personally I am have such a sweet tooth, and I've always wondered about why people like me have such cravings for this particular taste. The answer to the question is, not surprisingly, quite scientific, actually.
It's because we humans are primates - we evolved from animals who eat fruits from the trees.
And guess how the majority of fruits taste?
Sweet!
So that's why.
