I would use "desserts" in that case, since you are talking/writing in general.Sometimes I am just so confused when is the noun countable and when is it not. Like the word "dessert", the dictionary says both. So, in this sentence, Though she is afraid of being fat, she is fond of having ______ after dinner. Dessert or desserts?
The only one that works here (for me) is: She is fond of having dessert after dinner.Sorry, but your answers varied. Are both "dessert" and "desserts" OK?
I would still use dessert.According to your discussion, I tend to choose "dessert" in this case, but I think "desserts" is better if the question is changed into Though she is afraid of being fat, she is fond of having ______.What do you think?
I tend to think of dessert as part of dinner, so I might say 'she is fond of having dessert to round off dinner'.she is fond of having ______ after dinner
