Why I am happy to live in Japan – Part 8: Smaller Sweets
I love sweets! Japan is a great country for sweets – even cheap dagashi sweets are so delicious here. Of course I also like chocolate and cakes from European countries, and some American sweets are quite good, too, but I think that Japanese sweets are the best overall, and certainly offer the best cost performance.
Perhaps the best thing about Japanese sweets is their size. Many people here eat sweets, but not so many people are fat or overweight. This is probably influenced by many factors, but I think one important thing is the small size of most portions here. I feel like most sweets are made to be very delicious and also not too big. One piece of cake in an American restaurant may be enough food for three people, and generally the quality will not be as good. I prefer to have a smaller amount of a better quality dessert, and that is another reason why I am happy to live here.
