Rules:
I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings.
Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...)
You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

  • First Hint:

    My first teapot is sticky sweet
    My second's not all the time

  • Second Hint:

    My first teapot likes it hot,
    My second doesn't care about climate

  • Third Hint:

    My third teapot is hopefully sweet too,
    But you'll never know before you try

Good Luck and have fun!
And of course I'd like to thank @Jannis for starting the teapot riddles!
Please forgive me if I break tradition by not linking to previous teapot riddles here. Their number is growing and you'll find them if you want. :)

  • $\begingroup$ no problem, but where is the final hint :P $\endgroup$ – user52327 Sep 19 '18 at 8:55
  • $\begingroup$ @Jannis the riddle was easy enough to not need an easier final hint ^^ $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Sep 19 '18 at 8:56

Is this a

DATE?

My first teapot is sticky sweet

Date, the sticky sweet fruit.

My second's not all the time

Only certain dates of the year are sticky or sweet as well. Could this refer to the fact that only certain dates were on Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet tour? One date occurs every 365 days or so, it doesn’t occur all the time?

My first teapot likes it hot,

Dates grow in tropical conditions.

My second doesn't care about climate

Dates on the calendar occur no matter the climate.

My third teapot is hopefully sweet too,
But you'll never know before you try

This references going on a date - hopefully your date is sweet, but you won’t know before you go on it!

    $\begingroup$ indeed it was. Well played! You see through my puzzles too well. But I guess that has nothing to do with the puzzles being mine :) $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Sep 18 '18 at 15:02

    $\begingroup$ Also, I realized that 20 minutes before my post, someone posted the riddle "The perfect date". What a bad timing $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Sep 18 '18 at 15:03
