Basically, that we make everything overly sweet and ruin a good product.
In general, I would largely agree with that.
On the other hand, the German/Austrian sweet tooth for such things as marzipan and gloppy tortes (like sacher torte, etc.) would undercut that argument.
But the general cake mixes and cookie mixes and suh in Murka tend to have much ore sugar and filler than those in Europe, yes.
