I don't like foods that are too salty. Most packaged food overwhelms me with salt. But suddenly, I can't taste salt at all. When a potato chip doesn't taste salty you know something's wrong.
This is a minor detail in the scheme of things, although it does make much of what I eat taste like nothing. I'm sure the phenomenon is explained by temporary chemo damage to my taste buds, or possibly some drug I'm taking.
Worse than the missing salt chord, however, is that my beloved coffee doesn't taste right. I drink it black with no sugar, because I really love the pure taste of coffee. Now, it tastes like a weak version of the brew no matter how strong I make it. Again, I'll live; it's just disappointing.
Chocolate has not changed, and for this I'm very happy.
