Garlic Fest 2014: Four Strange Sweet Treats Infused With Garlic

Known for its sweet and spicy pungent taste, garlic is used as a flavorful ingredient in cuisines around the world.

It also benefits the body in numerous ways, helping with high blood pressure and high cholesterol and serving as an immune system boost, an antioxidant, acne prevention, and vampire repellent.

While we like to ensure we're getting our daily dose by adding it to all sorts of dishes, there are some garlicky infusions even we think are quite odd -- namely, desserts.

Here are the four strangest sweet garlic-infused dishes at this weekend's Delray Beach Garlic Fest at Old School Square.
