    I'd highly recommend this product as a calcium supplement. As a nurse practitioner, I often recommend patients take a calcium supplement (i.e. Tums, calcium tablets). This is an excellent alternative. The flavor I tried is chocolate (two others are available). Another REAL PLUS -- they are soft and chewable! And for those of us with a craving for chocolate, they certainly hit the spot! They are convenient (individually wrapped for freshness), so just pop them in your purse! Or better yet, keep a supply in your desk! Also, they're ONLY 20 calories each!! They are mid-range in price in comparison to calcium supplement tablets. I highly recommend them.

    This one is alright. As one reviewer says, it tastes a little like a tootsi roll, though to me it tastes a little chalky too. My favorite chocolate Ca+ supplement is Adora. I'm a HUGE chocoholic, and the Adora brand [...] is about as good as it gets.

        Comments about Viactiv Calcium Plus D, Soft Chews, Milk Chocolate, 72 ea:

        I can't comment on the effectiveness because there is some ingredient in these chews that absolutely does not agree with my stomach. I'm sure they work well for others but not for me.

            Hydrogenated Coconut Oil. Trans Fats are very
            bad news for your body.

                SHOCKED that these contain TRANS FATS!

                  Comments about Viactiv Calcium Plus D, Soft Chews, Milk Chocolate, 72 ea:

                  I've been using this product for years, as I find them much easier to digest than the large chalky pills. I was recently shocked to learn that these supplements contain a trace amount of trans fats! If a product contains less than 0.5g, they don't have to list it on the nutrition label. Yes, it may be a trace amount, but I don't want to eat trans fats when I'm trying to do something healthy for myself.

                  On another note, the new pink lid is incredibly misleading. One would think that by the pink lid this company somehow contributes to breast cancer research. Not true, instead the pink lid means "Vitamin D is being investigated for breast health benefits." I find this incredibly misleading in my opinion.

                  For these reasons above, after at least 10 years of use, I will be switching to another supplement.

                      I have been using Viactiv for 6 months or so. The chocolate really tastes good and that is the only flavor I have tried. But having said that, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth for a couple of hours or so.

                        Be sure to read the list of ingredients before you buy. If lactose intolerance has led you to a calcium supplement, be aware that these candies contain milk. Viactiv tastes a little like Tootsie Rolls but with maybe a softer texture.
