BioPure DHA Fish Oil Chewable Softgels
Chewable??? don't think so
Ok.. if you THINK these are going to be like the gummies that you find in Walmart vitamin section... FORGET THAT. Yes these have far more dha/epa.. but they don't chew worth a darn.
Little fish shaped capsules...that are almost rubber like.. and don't chew well at all.. and taste lousy. I'm sure you get health benefits.. but I ain't eating any more of them..

Chew yourself brain power!
I bought this because I couldn't find a large enough dose of the EFA without going to a couple of huge pills. I certainly remember from my childhood science class that these fatty acids with the amino acids make up "the building blocks of life" ... so I decided I needed a pretty big dose to try to build up my brain muscles. I found that I actually like the flavor and have already re-ordered. Also, by chewing it, while I chew, I can focus on the positive steps I am taking to improve my brain health.

NOT gummi bears!
Pop one into your mouth and you think "This could be OK!" only to bite into it and have the oil squirt out. Awful! And then the belching begins...

I don't know if they actually help but at least I feel like I am getting something recommended without gagging on the taste.

Taste horrible and gives fish burbs. Bought for grandson and he immediately spit it out. So I am now finishing them

I was so excited when I saw these were buy 1 get 1 free - when they came I immediately opened them. I was thrilled & loved the little fish shape - I popped one in my mouth and that's when my disappointment set in - they were described as chewable yet the pill literally popped open in my mouth and the oil came out - they are in a plastic type shell. I spat the plastic out - too tough and it seemed like I was chewing plastic.
Very disappointed with these chewables.
I'm going back to Target where they sell Omega 3's in a jelly candy type chewable for $10

Kids love it
My boys like taking this supplement. It has the shape of a fish. It does not have an after taste. It's small enough to swallow. They can also chew it.

I give these to my kids, and they love them. Easy to take, and a really good price for chewable. Nice extra does of omegas.

One way to get hubby to take fish oil!
My husband hates pills and this product he says is tolerable. He is not wild about the casing, but takes it, so I am satisfied with that. It is hard to test effectiveness, but know it is good for you.

Great fish oil!
This is a great fish oil with an emphasis on DHA. No fishy flavor so they really are chewable!

Great way for my kids to get essential oils. They love the taste. The price is also good.

Only ones I can take
I cannot swallow pills/capsules/tablets that are too large without getting them stuck in my throat! This was my only choice if I wanted to get the benefits of fish oil! Don't know why they don't make smaller ones. I would be willing to take two instead of one.

No after taste..
...and my hands are not so dry either.

My kids love these!
Both kids love these. I tried them and they do have a fishy taste. I'd prefer to take a pill to swallow but chewable is required for the kids. My son doesn't like the texture of the outer capsule but he'll chew it to get the oil out then spit out the capsule.
We've purchased these for years. They are exactly like their name brand counterpart but for much less. Great value!

Misleading label, low DHA
I saw that these caps contained 550 mg of Bio Pure DHA and ordered these, only to find that Bio Pure DHA only contains 100mg of DHA in 550 mg. This means to get a gram of DHA, I would need to take 10 of the fish-shaped capsules.
And don't expect a chewable gummy. If you bite into them you get fish oil.

great product, great price
My son takes these for mood and general health. He likes the taste and I like the amount of DHA they contain.

I bought these for my picky eating grandsons. We had tried the gummy fish, but they were so nasty I returned them. My grandsons like these little fish and take them everyday. We are on our 4th bottle.

My husband likes to use gummy vitamins. These were very dissapointing. They are like chewing on plastic with a liquid fish oil inside. We threw the bottles away. I am sure the oil was good quality, but the delivery method was awful!

Not the Best Chewable
I was looking forward to an adult dose omega chewable, but these little fish are wierd in the mouth and don't taste very good. They are like a chewy softgel and when you bite thru, the oily liquid center isn't very pleasant. I would rather swallow a pill.

best kids' fish oil
My 3 daughters (ages 2, 5, and 6) absolutely LOVE this fish oil. We could not find it for a while, so we had to try other brands (softgels and gummies) and none of them were nearly as good. By comparison, one of these softgels equals 2 or 3 softgels of most other brands. The fish shape is cute (as compared to the fish "egg" look of other brands).
As for the reviews that said these were hard to chew, I and my girls find them much softer and easier to chew than the other brands of softgels, and the taste is better than that of all the alternatives we tried. Yes, it is chewy, but that chewy outer part is what protects the nutrients inside. Yes, there is a very slight fish oil aftertaste - THIS IS FISH OIL - what do you think it's going to taste like? My girls all like the taste, and the middle one is a VERY picky eater (if it looks like fish, smells like fish, or tastes like fish, she won't touch it). She's usually the one who reminds me that I need to give them their fish oil!

My Daughter Loves it!
My daughter is now a little over 2 and has been taking this "fishy" (as she calls it) since she was a year old. When we first gave it to her we did not know what she would do, I was afraid that she would choke, she really liked it and has been excited about it ever since. She ask everyday, "Mommy can I have my fishy," sometimes more than once a day! I have a 6 month old and I plan on starting him on it too!

Even though I didn't see a big change in my son's focus and alertness, the sgel is easy to chew for him. I couldn't find the product again, so I'm trying another one with more DHA on it.

tough to chew
My two kids, 12 & 15, tried these. I tried one also. We just about gagged. The outside is tough to chew. My little cousin, 5, loves them. Go figure. One could always just swallow these instead of chewing.

Love these softgels!
I give these to my 4 year old. At first she didn't want to swallow the outer part after she chewed it up and ate the fish oil inside. That was fine with me as she was still getting the fish oil inside. Now that she is used to it, she eats the whole thing with zero issues. It is her favorite vitamin to take and she never complains. Just stick with it, and your kids will get used to them. I have not found a better chewable fish oil anywhere!
