In English you would probably say "These desserts are not overly sweet". Thoughts?

Is this a nice way to say, "These desserts are very bland" or is it a compliment?

It's just a way to say "they are not too sweet". Maybe they are sweetened just right, you know, not too much. As you know, Duo is usually not too subtle.

When I was in France years ago, dessert was not generally served. The last course would be cheese and/or fruit. And always coffee after that. Has this changed?
