Sweet tooth is fading as I age?

I've always had a sweet tooth. I love good cookies, square, cakes, and pies. Dessert's always been the best part of the meal for me. But now, at 45, I find that goodies often taste too sweet for me. I'll eat one of my beloved squares and find it WAY too sweet. One or two pieces of chocolate and I've hit the wall. Used to be that I could eat the whole bar! Furthermore, I just don't seem to crave desserts as I used to.

So, for me, this is bittersweet (no pun intended). It's healthier to eat fewer desserts, yet I miss savouring a really great lemon square/hello dolly/brownie.

Just wondering if others have experienced anything similar. Is this a common side effect of aging, or is it just me?
