We all want to be healthy, but nobody’s perfect. There’s nothing wrong with eating something unhealthy from time to time, but how do we explain our eating habits in English? Sweet tooth is one of the most common ways, and here’s how we use it.

Sweet Tooth

A person who likes to eat sweet food! It doesn’t matter if you like ice cream, cake, candy, chocolate, etc. All of these unhealthy (and delicious) foods can mean you have a sweet tooth.

One of the most important things to remember is that “sweet tooth” is a noun, but, it’s something we have, not something we can be.

  • Example:
    I eat chocolate everyday, so I am a sweet tooth. (Wrong!)
    I eat chocolate everyday, so I have a sweet tooth. (Right!)
  • Example:
    I always care about what I eat, but I have a sweet tooth, so I do go for ice cream once in a while.
  • Example:
    I don’t really have a sweet tooth, so when I want to have a snack I prefer salty food.
