KGT 85:  The closest equivalent to sweet is probably {na'ran rur} ("resembles a *naran*," a fruit whose juice is sometimes added to sauces as a contrast to the other flavors) ... Despite the general absence of sweet foods from their diet, Klingons tend to be quite enthusiastic about {yuch} (chocolate), at least in its purest forms.

When Seven of Nine was "possessed" by the personality of K'Vok when a Borg vinculum - the device which connects and processes the thousands of disparate minds on a Borg cube - was infected with a virus and malfunctioned, she initiates a Klingon mating ritual with B'Ellana saying, "Your blood is sweet." (VOY "Infinite Regress")
