Dont like the flavor that it has. Otherwise, it is a fine product.

I love these and have reordered many times. With the acerola they give you a fuller spectrum then simply ascorbic acid. I expect them to be very sour but think they are delicious. To get vit c NOT to be sour I am sure they'd have to pump in alot more sugar or artifical sweeteners and I dont' want more of those. I do not think they are more sour than sour candy like Sour patch...I think that woman's teens are complaining because it's a pill and they were surprised...I did a taste test, the most shocking sour candy is much more sour. I've ordered 6 or 7 times and it never broke in transit but perhaps have been lucky. Broken glass doesn't work so I hope they fix that by packaging better but since that's not an issue for me I prefer glass. I bet most people who it did't break for dont write a review it may be less common than it seems from the reviews here...as people who have a problem are more likely to post. I do wish the tablets could be a bit smaller...the tablets are the size of many 1g ones so they are harder to take with you. They are tasty. I have trouble not wanting to eat them as candy to be honest, lol.

Glass shows ultimate health concern
Country Life's brand is top quality. Delighted. I am glad they are using glass, to avoid loss of freshness and potency that plastics can't avoid, and also to avoid the plastic interaction with supplements. Acidic ingredients especially cause plastic chemicals to leach.

I received it broken, because the product have glass bottle, not plastic.
And when i taste it.... bruaaaa. It is the worst sour flavour, i ever taste. I dont' like very sweet things, but i can't to eat this product. Throwed all to the bin.

Overall Good Product
I don't mind the flavor at all. So many things are over-sweetened; I'm glad this is not. The wafers come in a glass bottle. I believe food stays fresher longer in glass bottles--and one doesn't have to worry about toxins from a plastic container leeching into the wafers. I just wish the wafers, which measure nearly 1 and 1/8 inches, were smaller--then it would be easier to carry several in one's purse or pocket (using a pill box or other such small container).

Way too sour too eat!
My kids love sour candy but find these too sour to eat and they are teens not small children. The product may be excellent but if you don't want to have to chew a big sour disc, you unfortunately end up not taking them as a supplement very often!

I love chewable vitamin C! These are nice and sour. Good product and much cheaper than some of the others.

You can only absorb 500 mg of vitamin C at one time, so it's nice to have a chewable handy to take at different times of the day.
