Vitacost Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D3 & Magnesium -- 1000 mg - 120 Chewable Tablets
Bits and Pieces
The overall quality of the product is good, the flavor and texture good as well. It's calcium, so there is a bit of chalkiness that is expected, but it is flavored well and the individual tablets are of an easily manageable size...when they are in whole pieces.
The problem with this product is in the packaging and subsequent handling. Were it packaged properly, the handling would not be such an issue. You see, it arrives with virtually all the tablets broken into tiny pieces. There is not enough material inside the bottle to keep the fragile tablets from rattling/smashing around and breaking apart. So, if you are willing to make an educated guestimate of how many "bits and pieces" make up a whole tablet, then this aspect will not deter you from buying it. Other than this, it is a good product.

Good in general.
There are some tablets broken. However, it's good in tasting and general.

vita-cost products puts the "name brands" to shame
Vita cost is the first so called store brand ever that has impressed me this much!
this product is great, does the job, and i noticed the improvement immediately. the only thing i could say that would make it better is if it came in non-chewable tablets with this formula. The flavor is great but the tabs are a bit chalky to me and i have very few teeth making them take longer to chew so the chalky taste is in my mouth longer.Also the 1st bottle i ordered was the only thing in my order and with the free shipping it came in an envelope so a lot of the tabs were broken. [easily handled] i would reccomend it
