not bad tastewise
it's not chalky to me. it has a nice mild vanilla flavor and compared to the chewables you get at the local stores it goes down very easily and it's a lot less in price.

I am very happy to have found this Calcium from Swanson! I was looking to find a better product to suit me than what I was purchasing from my local store. I had previously tried the large, dry caplets that I became tired of, and then switched to the chewable, caramel flavored cubes that seemed too sugary. These Swanson chewables are just right - not too sugary, and with a slight vanilla mint flavor.

Not bad taste
Better than most chewable calcium tabs

bought by accident
Not good at tasting pills, even chewable, so when I bought the wrong ones, I still swallow with water!

Love that it's chewable, have always had a problem swallowing such large calcium supplements in the past.

I used to take calcium chews but I don't like some of the ingredients in them so decided to give these a try. They don't have much of a taste so are easy to chew on and swallow. I wanted something that wasn't a pill so it could be absorbed into my system and these work well.

It is great because it absorbs not like tablets. It taste good too

I wish I had gone with the reviews about the bad taste. I will not be re-ordering and would send this back but it's too much bother. I had to eat a mint after I ate the chewable.

Calcium that tastes good
I don't like to swallow pills so I got this Calcium where I could chew not swallow. These tablets taste good too. Highly recommend.

Bad Unpleasant Tasting Product
I took these pills for 2 weeks and could not take them anymore. Taste was bad and chalky despite the flavoring that was added.
April 12, 2013
Excellent product. Will purchase again.

Convenient and taste good
It tastes good and very easy to chew and swallow. Just follow up with a full cup of water, that's all. Will buy for more supplies soon.

Chalky sour taste
While you need to get your calcium, the taste of these is not very good. Adding a different flavor would be helpful. In addition, the tables are large. More like a necessary evil........

Tastes like chalk
I read the reviews and decided to purchase this product. I've loved most of the purchases I've made on this site. I was surprised when I opened the bottle that it was so chalky. There was no smell. I picked one up and it left powder on my fingers. When I chewed it, I actually spit it out. And I'm not picky. I can stomach most things but this was like eating chalk and the medicines you were stuck having as a kid because they didn't flavor anything back then outside of an orange flavor. There was NO flavor but chalk. I'm not thrilled that I'm stuck with a full bottle of vitamins that will not be used.

I usually don't get chewable vitamins---only for the grandchildren----but I really was impressed with the flavor and will order them again---and you can't beat the price! Cheaper than any other calcium pills I have bought!

Feel safe using
I feel safer digesting chewed and dissolved calcium rather than swallowing a whole tablet.

Love the Chewable Calcium
Has a chalk like consistency but its great, I love chewable vitamins, minerals and supplements. Will keep taking this one for a long time

Much better than the little stones others sell
So easy to get the recommended dose for seniors. Just pop them like a candy. The fact that they are chewable is important to my wife. I brought a supply into the hospital for her because she could not take what the nurses offered.

excellent product but the tab is really large

These are the chalkiest, worst tasting, chewables I have every had. I am not able to choke them down. I will never be ordering these again.

Although this product is exactly what I was seeking for my kids, we all agree that it tastes terrible. Not minty enough or fruity enough - but both in a terrible combination. YUK. Will not buy again.

Not liking the taste
Good value but the taste is not good.
May 27, 2010

Great Taste No AfterTaste!!!
this stuff taste way better than I thought it would. once I chewed the pills I tated vanilla & something else I can't call..but it did it's thing. I will only buy these chewables now..no more local pharmacy store 4 me...
February 20, 2010
all the chewable/liquid calcium supplements I have tried, these are the
best tasting: not too sweet, no chemical aftertaste. They break up
easily in the mouth. Since calcium carbonate should be taken with food,
I use one as an after dinner mint! Can't really tell if they are
