My Yiddish teacher told us that the preference for sweet vs. savory corresponds to distinct Yiddish dialects.  He said that it's called the "Geflite Fish Line."

BTW, there is a great scene in Amos Oz's A Tale of Love and Darkness where one of his grandmothers complains about how sweet the other grandmother's cooking is.
