This product is excellent! Bariatric surgery patients need chewable calcium citrate, as opposed to calcium carbonate, and the chewable versions are hard to find. The other chewable calcium citrate product I purchased tasted like chewing on a piece of chalk, and I had to chew 8 a day. The consistency and the flavor of the Cal-Snack wafer is very pleasant, and I only need 4 a day. It is a citrate/carbonate blend that my doctor approved. This is the product I plan to use.

It's hard to find chewable calcium w/magnesium, especially one that tastes good. As for the price - it's seems to be reasonable - would always like it to cost a bit less.

It taste natural but it dissolve very slowly. It is a convenient way to supply daily Ca need.
Unexpected side effects

I didn't realize soon enough that I would be adding a LOT of magnesium to my diet with these. My lower GI tract was not happy (I'll spare you the details). Taste was OK.
Hard and chalky

I bought these for my tween kids but these are so thick it was hard for them to bite through. I decided I'd use them up but had the same problem. Also they're so dry and chalky it took forever to eat them. Ended up tossing more than half the bottle.
