        Una cosa embafosa o embafadora no és necessàriament dolça. Mireu la definició d'embafar:

        embafar
        v tr 1 Una menja o una beguda llevar l'apetit (d'algú), carregar-li l'estómac, per l'excés de dolçor, de greix o d'espessor.
        2 fig Enutjar, una cosa, per l'excés d'artifici o la insistència.

        Sorry, still working on old issues. Perhaps 'rich' and 'stodgy' might be good choices here.

        Segons l'OALD:

        rich
        containing a lot of fat, butter, eggs, etc. and making you feel full quickly: a rich creamy sauce, a rich chocolate cake

        stodgy
        heavy and making you feel very full: stodgy puddings

        They both seem to correspond pretty well to the definition of 'embafós' Jaume provides.

        embafós
        adj.
        rich / stodgy
        syn. - embafador

        And cloying? That came out of trying to find a translation for the verb embafar - to cloy? It is pretty obscure but I can't offhand think of a synonym.
