Haflin as a race do tend to take their pleasures very seriously, and the fat Haflin stereotype has taken hold because rural farmers, while dedicated and fastidious in their work, have all the food they could ever want and not a lot of reason to engage in moderation. Those used to that stereotype are very surprised the first time they meet a chiselled, battlescarred warrior Haflin.
