Dessert is the usually sweet course that concludes a meal. The food that composes the dessert course includes but is not limited to sweet foods. There is a wide variety of desserts in western cultures now including cakes, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, pudding, and candies. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its natural sweetness. Many different cultures have their own variations of similar desserts around the world, such as in Russia, where many breakfast foods such as blint, oladi, and syrniki can be served with honey and jam to make them popular as desserts. The loosely defined course called dessert can apply to many foods.
The word dessert is most commonly used for this course in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and Ireland, while "sweets" or "afters" or, informally, "pudding" are alternative terms that may also be used in the United Kingdom and some other Commonwealth countries, including New Zealand, Hong Kong, and India.
