Carlson Super 2 Daily Vitamins and Minerals -- 180 Softgels
High Quality Supplement - Terrible Capsules
I have been taking this multivitamin for the past couple years. I think it's a great product. The problem is, the last few bottles I have ordered have come with a capsule or two that has ruptured. As others have mentioned, just one ruptured capsule ruins the entire bottle. The reason is the liquid inside of them (which is more like a liquid paste) runs all over the rest of the capsules and the smell and taste is unbearable. It's worse than rancid fish! I'm going to try these one more time but if I get another bad bottle, I'll have to shop around. Carlson needs to fix this. I have no idea how a capsule ruptures. When is the last time you've taken a supplement where the capsule has ruptured??

Used to love it
I have been using this product for a couple of years now. I love the ingredients; it is a unique blend that is found in other brands.
Over the last year, I have had a terrible time with this product. Over that time period, I have ordered this five times (one was a replacement but it had the same problem). All but one of those had the same problem you can see from other reviewers: a gel cap ruptures and the bottle smells and all the other gel caps taste like rotten fish. Yuck! I have started saving a couple of bites of my breakfast just to wash down the taste. I will not be ordering this again.

I have used this product for several years. I first started buying it at a pharmacy. They told me that Carlson is Pharmacy quality. I have had several bottles delivered to me from VitaCost and had to return one as the capsules were leaking. Another came with the same trouble but not as bad. I wiped each capsule off with a paper towel and let it dry. I feel as though this product has a lot of important vitamins and a therapeutic amount of them.

One you can trust!
My 80 years old mom started taking this and she said she got so much energy that she just could not stop running around the house doing chores. My sister and I take these vitamins too and we both are very happy with them. I also give one to my 15 years old daughter. Carlson is a great brand.
