I have been so pleased with drugstore.com. However, they still show the old pix of this product and it has changed. Not for the better in my opinion. The new chewables break easily and the bottle is also more apt to be broken. My adage is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I go through a bottle of pills in 10 days. These are the most economical for the money and I am kind of getting more used to them. Still prefer the old ones much more. They tried to change the formula about a year ago and had lots of complaints then. Hope that happens this time. Again, I am very satisfied with drugstore.com. Just not this product, even though I will order it again for the convenience.

Best that I've found

Comments about Twinlab Calcium Citrate, Chewable Wafers, 60 ea:

As someone who can only use chewables, I have tried many many brands of calcium citrate. This one is definitely the best tasting for the price. Although a little chalky, you quickly adjust. It is easy to chew, with a bright citrusy flavor. Yes, there are one or two out there that taste better, but their cost for daily use is prohibitive. Also, don't be fooled as I was by ones that use Citra in their name. Their chewables are NOT calcium citrate and won't absorb in the same way. Overall, this one tastes best and is a good value.

        Comments about Twinlab Calcium Citrate, Chewable Wafers, 60 ea:

        This is my second order of Calcium Citrate. Since so many are broken when they arrive, I'm not going to get it any more. It was the only chewable Calcium Citrate available. I guess I'll go back to regular Calcium. I also thought they were very expensive considering that I have to take twice as much of the Citrate as I do of the regular Calcium.

            Not all change is for the good! Twin Labs reformulation of their Calcium Citrate Chewable wafers is a failure! Taste like chalk! The texture is reminiscent of ground oyster shells!

                    Calcium citrate is much easier on the intestinal tract...as opposed to calcium carbonate. Most non-chewable calcium tablets are huge and the chewables are easy to use, plus they have a great taste.

                      My husband now reaches for instead of something unhealthy. The sweet tart taste reminds me of childhood. I love because it is hard to swallow the huge calcium pills DR.s want you to take when in menopause.Wish all my vitamins or meds were so easy to take.

                        I prefer chewables because I have problems swallowing most of the large calcium supplements. The taste isn't bad; sort of like a chalky fruity candy. I take them to prevent osteoporosis. I give them 3 stars because the packaging is less than satisfactory. I've had 2 broken bottles and one defective bottle in the year that I've been ordering them. This makes me wonder about the product itself. I hope the wafers don't reflect the poor quality of the bottles!
