Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Ordered two bottles in July, received them in July and sent them back in July, 2019 because I did not appreciate a best used by date of December 2019. I would not purchase vitamins in person at a box store with a best by date, five months from purchase and do not appreciate being shipped such items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Compared to Previous Purchases I have purchased this product for may years and was pleased with it. The last purchase however was different. The tablets were not polished but rather soft and powdery. This makes them difficult to swallow. I have found another company to purchase from now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expiration date I bought Vitamin C to take advantage of the sale price and to stock up on my supply. I was disappointed with the expiration date. The expiration date will expire before I use all of the Vitamin C I ordered. Swanson should take the expiration date into account before shipping their product to loyal long standing customers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I've been a long time user of Vitamin C with Rose Hips Timed-Release, but the decision to remove the outside coating makes these troublesome to take. It obviously was a cost reduction that failed to consider the customer's reaction to what used to be a high-quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Vitamin C & Rose Hips Timed-Release During a health crisis 12 years ago, my Naturopathic Doctor and I began a crusade to heal my immune system. Swanson supplements became a part of my life, and also my family. Time Release supplements like this Vitamin C with Rose Hips means my body receives a steady dose throughout my day. Love this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used to be good -- but not now. Have been using this for years. We used to be very happy with this, but several months ago it seemed to change. Now they start dissolving in the mouth and the throat clamps down refusing to swallow. I and my wife both experience this. Will be looking for a different Vitamin C next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to swallow I have had this product before but now it is very difficult to swallow. The tablet is big and the coating is not smooth. If you chew it, the taste is horribly bitter. I bought 250 tablets and have never had a problem before. Quality control has failed on this batch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Vitamin C and at a great price. Couldn't tell you the last time I had a cold or flu.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hard to swallow This Vitamin C product seeming like a good price and a quality product with added rosehips, BUT I couldn't swallow them. They have a rough outside that doesn't slip down the throat very easily. I have to return them. I have been taking various vitamins for many years and have never had one I couldn't swallow

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Harder to swallow I have always been satisfied with the value and dependability of Swanson's vitamins, and I have used this brand and potency in the past. This batch however, is more difficult to swallow. The tablets do not appear to have a coating, so although they disintegrate more quickly, they do not slide down the throat easily. For that reason, I am giving 4 stars instead of 5.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Large Way too large a pill to swallow, it's not coated making it that much more difficult to get down. Bought two, not able to use them.
Date published: 2019-03-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Going out of date. This is the second product from Swanson that I have had this problem with. And that is the product "best to use by date" is less than a year. So you buy the BOGO special and by the time you get to the end of your supply they have expired. Both times I called customer service and told them the problem. Both times they sent out to me more of the same product with the same expiration date. All that does for me is give me more product that I will have to throw away in 8 months. There are plenty of companies with good vitamins and supplements out there to choose from who will ship fresh product to you, and in this competitive environment why should one except less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well...tastes terrible. It is effective for supplying Vit.C, but tastes terrible. Bring back the capsules.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I have been using this for years and I think it's very good. It has worked well for me. I must say though the recent change of the texture/coating and shape is not likeable. It made it harder to swallow. It feels like it has edges, instead of rounded and smooth like the old pill. The coating also had a smooth silky texture when you put it in your mouth. Not anymore, it's like the coating instantly starts coming off when you put it in your mouth. It's not a nice flavor either. My daughter came home from college and she used it and she agreed. So please go back to the old coating and smooth rounded shape. Other than that it's a good product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AGREED - New form is TERRIBLE These have been my go-to and favorite Vitamin C for years... My new shipment that just arrived (12/5/18), has been reformulated, and the coating is no longer there. I wish that information would have been presented in ANY form when I way to know a change was made, until you open up the bottle! Based on the difference of ingredients on my new bottle, versus my old bottle, the hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is no longer listed in the ingredients - though it is still currently listed on the website. I am very disappointed with Swanson...and I've been a loyal customer for Years! I, too, will begin looking at other options for Vitamin C time release. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New form is a disaster As long-time Swanson customers, the easy-swallow, slick, no-taste coating on these 1000mg vitamin C tablets was a major reason our family valued your products. It's the most important of the supplements we take that keep us very nearly free of colds (as tested by us over the years). This new form is NOT an equivalent substitute and should not be marketed with the same label -- it's the same shape, but the coating (if there is any at all) is now chalky, permeable to taste, and sticks somewhat to tongue or throat. I also worry that a supplier who cuts corners so drastically on the coating may also cut corners on the actual supplement. Please insist that this new supplier deliver a harder coating like the old one! Even if such a coating is a bit more expensive, time-release vitamin C is still a great bargain for its very real health benefits. Meanwhile, I'll be trying other brands, which is unfortunately a slow and expensive process since one can't tell the difference without buying a bottle (which is what I did originally, to find the old, good version at Swanson).
