Few ideas: This can be related to a few things. First, glucose has rapid absorption as do other simple sugars so there is a quick high and then a quick low, often that leads to sleepiness. Also there can be digestive issues as the something sweet could contain gluten or something else making you sleepy. Watch out, leads to increased calorie intake=weight gain!
