Comment of Cinnamon Archer:
I spoke with a person from Acklins at the age of 66 years old. He is quite familiar with the term sweet-mouth as he uses this to Describe his daughter. He would always use this term on his daugher because she tends to like any food that is sweet or delicious for example: cakes, candy, icecream, juices and so forth. A sweet mouth person is the easiest one to please he said.
