Vitacost Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D3 & Magnesium -- 1000 mg - 120 Chewable Tablets
This product contains a good ratio of vitamin D, calcium citrate and magnesium. My only disappointment is that it contains magnesium stearate.

This Supplement is essential!
Started taking this supplement for 2 days ago in conjunction with chewable multivitamins from vitcost. After all the research Ive put into figuring out the best supplements. Vitamin D and magnesium are so, so important. The taste is somewhat off-putting but I drink a herbal tea with no sweetner and it knocks out the taste. This supplement for me is a 9/10 for me simply because it actually works. My advice would be to combine this supplement with a potent multivitamin and you will feel amazing and very level headed.

I see several reviews complaining about the flavor. Here's my version. I have lots of difficulty swallowing pills, so if I can get my hands on chewable, liquid, or powder forms, I take them. So, I've tasted LOTS of flavored chewable products. This one is near the top for good.
It's not a bad flavor, unless you really hate orange. It's more of an orange cream flavor, but more orange than cream. Not strong on flavor, but enough that it's almost like a candy.
The texture isn't the greatest, but also certainly not the worst. A little gritty and a little chalky, but not severely so.
I feel like this is an excellent form of calcium. Never irritates my stomach, and I tend to take it in the mornings with or near breakfast. I can be sensitive to acidic things, and I can drink a cup of coffee and take one of these calcium close together and suffer no effects.
I take one when I know I'm not going to get enough calcium for the day. I'm lactose intolerant, so I rely on other foods for calcium and don't always get what I need in a day.
The value of this product is also excellent, and a larger quantity means I'm not running out so fast. I do recommend this product.

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.....
