Because fruits and vegetables aren't tailor made to stimulate your taste buds in exact ways. Candy, desserts, etc are made with chemicals that science has produced knowing that we will enjoy the taste and therefore want more, causing increased consumption, leading to increased profits.

Fruits and vegetables taste just fine once you get over the sugar addiction. I enjoy the flavor of so many fruits and veggies that I used to hate now that my diet is clean (most of the time), such as strawberries, broccoli, asparagus, canteloupe, and others. The artificial flavors are aggressive and therefore cause a huge "wow" factor to the taste buds.
