My taste buds fell into 3 categories when I was in chemo:
1. This tastes like it should.
2. This tastes like cardboard.
3. This tastes like a 4 letter word that will print out as XXXX here.
Most foods fell into category 3, so I just didn't eat them. After some experimentation, I found that for some reason tomatoes and cheese tasted like tomatoes and cheese, and bread, crackers, and pasta didn't have any taste, good or bad, at all. So I mostly ate tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, cheese and crackers, and when I really wanted to splurge, pasta marinara.
