Awful chalky taste, but this is a solution for those like me who have problems swallowing large prenatal pills.
I just can't take them anymore! The taste is just too horrible. I've tried to get used to them for two weeks and I've decided to buy some other "horse-pill" vitamins instead. ANYTHING will taste better than these!
I have a terrible time swallowing pills so I knew right from the start that I would ideally be using a chewable vitamin. These were the only ones I could find that would ship to Canada.
Some people are saying that the taste is awful, but to be honest I don't find it that bad at all. You won't be snacking on them, that's for sure, but you're supposed to take it with food anyway so the taste doesn't last long if you eat them in between bites.
They have a good amount of folic acid.
These chews are quite chalky and doesn't taste very good. It's actually quite pricey considering that the dosage is 2 pills per day, this bottle will only last you a month.
I have an awful time swallowing pills so I decided to give these a try. They do not have a pleasant taste, I wouldn't say they are down right nasty, but the taste was not what I would have expected. I would rather chew up a materna pill to be honest. Other than the taste, I have no complaints. But I probably wouldn't buy them again for that reason.
Finally a chewable prenatal vitamin! Bought enought for the next year when it was on sale.
I was very happy to find a prenatal vitamin that was chewable! I find it really hard to swallow the Materna pills as they are so big. The taste of Quest multivitamins are a little chaky, sort of like Tums, but they do they job! The only thing that I wish I knew was the content of each pill. Based on the website, I see the bottle came with 60 pills, and I thought each pill contained 1mg of folic acid. So I bought 2 bottles thinking I will have enough for 4 months. However, when I got the bottle, it said that each pill had only 500 mcg of folic acid, therefore I had to take 2 a day. Now these bottle are only going to last me 2 months! I feel that the description online should have indicated this, then I would have bought more bottles! Anyways, this product is excellent if you can't swallow and it doesn't have a terrible taste either!
