Saudis definitely have a sweet tooth. In Jeddah, there are chocolate shops galore, along with many other confectioneries, ice cream shops, and bakeries. Baklava is a very popular treat in the Middle East. In the back of this photo you can see a tree made of bite size pieces of baklava. In the front is a colorful fondant cake. These were on display at one of my husband's favorite places for sweets in Jeddah called Samadi.
