Taste is subjective. Some people like Coke, some like Pepsi. Some will drink both while some wouldn't let either touch their lips. So one person's idea of delicious is not necessary another's.

To me, these are the tastiest vitamin I've ever taken. My gf buys those little mini chocalate bars for snacks and I honestly can't tell the difference between them and these Calcium supplements. I've seen others have a negative opinion of the taste and all I can say is to me they have a delicious dark choclate taste.

I needed a Calcium Citrate vitamin supplement due to a deficiency in my system. I also have Reflux disease and am on Nexium so if you take a stomach acid pill (like Nexium or Prevacid), your body doesn't absorb Calcium Carbonate (found in most Calcium pills and antacid tablets). You need CITRATE.

I have a gag reflex so I can't take horse pills. Most calcium citrate pills are big enough to choke a camel. I wanted a chewable but I didn't want a chewable that tasted horrible. I gave these a shot because, well, how bad can you mess up chocolate?

I'm very very pleased with the product. Good taste, good value, easy to take. I only wish the dosage were a little higher (333 mg per chewable, need to take 3 for a daily supply) but otherwise I highly recommend these.

I bought this product as a supplement for my children who cannot consume dairy products. It is easy to chew and swallow, instead of swallowing a large pill.

I was disappointed in the taste, as were my kids. It does not taste good at all. It has a very slight chocolate taste. Other than that, it is like eating a dry, crumbly piece of chalk. My kids do not like it at all, and neither do I.

    chalky chocolately calcium deliciousness

      Comments about Rainbow Light Calcium Citrate, Chocolate, 45 Chewable Wafers:

      I use this product to shake up my calcium routine, since I am required to take a calcium supplement multiple times every day. I find it difficult to swallow large pills, so the chewable tablet works well for me. I usually take 1.5 tablets at a time to get in 500mg since 1000mg at one time is a wasted dose for me. The taste can be a little chalky at first, but you quickly get used to it and I find that I like it. I agree with the reviewer who likened it to a hard disc of hot chocolate.

      As far as I know, vitamin D3 is what facilitates the absorption of calcium in the body, and this formulation does contain vitamin D3. Before you bypass this supplement because it doesn't contain vitamin K3, do a little research to satisfy yourself because it's a good supplement.

      Overall, I would recommend it to a friend and buy it again.

      Tastes like hot cocoa powder

      Comments about Rainbow Light Calcium Citrate, Chocolate, 45 Chewable Wafers:

      These actually are not "wafers" which makes me imagine a layered wafer cookie. These are more like a crunchy tablet. They taste exactly like a hardened tablet of hot cocoa. I like them with my cup of coffee.

            I use this product daily. It tastes like a nice piece of Chocolate candy. Some of the others are awful. I have to have the chewable kind as they digest better and don't sit there like a tablet. The chewables are better for someone with Kidney Stone problems, like I have had, according to my Dr.

            I like everything about this except that they use the wrong kind of Vitamin K. They should be using K3 which is the type that helps you absorb calcium. I emailed them to ask about it, and they told me that if I wanted K3 I should buy one of their other calcium products! What??? They need to fix their formulation before I will upgrade my review.

                On the downside, there isn't enough coton packing in the bottle so when it arrives (after being tossed around in a delivery truck) some of the wafers are broken and the there is lots of powder in the bottle. I guess it's this or pay a couple bucks more at a local store for undamaged ones.
