    I didn't like the taste at first, but it grew on me. I like that it doesn't taste TOO good. If it did, I might be tempted to take more than I should. It chews like candy - like a tootsie roll.

    I definitely like this better than taking a pill. I keep a bowl in my office by my desk and take one here or there through out the day. Since I'm terrible about taking pills, I know that I comply with taking this stuff better than I would with pills. Also, in addition to pills, I have tried two different brands of liquid versions of this stuff (one that starts as powder and one that comes as a liquid). These chews are my first choice of everything I have tried.

    Did it help? I had some terrible joint problems in my knee. Over time, the knee has gotten a lot better. Did this stuff contribute to my getting better? I have no idea one way or another since my recover took a long time and during that time I did other things too such as babying my knee, modifying my activity, etc. However, I'm convinced enough in the science behind glucosamine to renew my order. I purchased several containers several months ago and am now ordering more.

    Why 4 stars instead of 5 if I'm going to keep buying it? Because it is expensive considering it is more than $17 for a 20 day supply. Also, the "other ingredients" are all horrible for you. I don't expect a chewable to be health food, but this is really terrible. I'm trying to eat more healthy and with this stuff, I'm taking the equivalent of probably 4 small tootsie rolls - not just in sugar content, but in other really bad for you foods such as corn syrup, hydrogenated chemicals, puss-filled (non-organic) milk, etc. Ick.

    Post gastric bypass, need chewable forms and not gel caps or other capsules re: disolve issues. so I seek out chewable forms of nutrient = this one is 'doable' but there is a defined strangeness in the taste. Not bad, but there. I would continue to use, probably.

        [...] I would return for refund.The taste isn't too bad, but the calorie count is very high for some-thing one is supposed to take 3 x"s per day! I'd rather spend 75 calories on a piece of fruit, etc.. Also noticed that the taste stays with me for hours afterward. :(

                    I have been a runner for almost 20 years, and I started feeling it in my knees about 10 years ago. I would take the glucosamine chondroitin pills, but they are difficult for me to swallow, so then I seem to avoid taking them. Now that I have found these chews, I take them more regularly like I should. This stuff works. I also think the chews might release into the system faster than having to digest a pill.

                      This is the only chewable form of glucosamine/chondroitin I've been able to find and it sure beats swallowing yet another supplement. It's tought to get the contents to taste decent, but they really have improved the taste a whole lot -- reasonably pleasant to chew. I notice if I skip these, I'm just a little achier -- the joys of middle age.

                            Have seen a slight improvement in joint pain so hopeful this is the reason. Doesn't taste great or like chocolate. However, if you break it into smaller bites its not bad at all.
