    for my father-in-law when a few days before he died, a friend brought him a piece of Chocolate Decadence cake from his favorite local bakery (he was an unrepentant chocoholic, but he was so skinny he could indulge without guilt), and he took one bite and made a face like it was the worst thing he'd ever tasted. The doctor told us that one of the first things to go when a person is dying is their sense of taste, which is one of the reasons people stop eating.
