Vitacost Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D3 & Magnesium -- 1000 mg - 120 Chewable Tablets
Calcium Citrate Chewables
The ingredients and price are great, and they don't taste awful ... but I find myself avoiding them and not taking a full days-worth. I am sure chewables are better absorbed, but if they don't taste great, and these don't, I'd rather swallow capsules. I recommend them with the disclaimer to only get them if you're not a wuss like me about how they taste.

The flavor is not good
I got the chewable ones after getting sick of downing 4 large size capsules. I should have just stayed with the capsules. These taste so sickly sweet it is disgusting and for the record I love sugar. These, in my opinion, do not taste good at all. Now I'm breaking them in half and trying to swallow them so I don't have to taste them. Although, they are a good deal and have a good balance of nutrients in them. I only have like 300 more to go.....

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.

Pretty good and excellent for the bariatric patient. Look forward to have. Price is below everywhere else and it really is a great product.
