I have previously blogged about Viactiv Calcium Chews. Well, despite having the tub in my desk at work, I wasn't very good at taking them. I know...shame on me. Not to say that I'm not taking vitamins. On the contrary!
I take a multi-vitamin every night, along with acidophilus and fish oil. Taking the fish oil at night prevents "fish burps". In the morning, I take 2000 mg of Vitamin D. I take a calcium supplement (Calcium Citrate is better, according to my Doc) in the morning as well, but only with food, because it upsets my tummy if I take on an empty stomach. And sometimes I don't remember to do that.
Which is where the Viactiv comes in. I think I wasn't very good at taking them before because the chocolate flavor was not that great, despite me trying to convince myself. So, I decided to try a different flavor, because really, chocolate isn't right unless it's the real thing.
So now I have Caramel sitting ON TOP of my desk. Let me tell you...MILES better than the chocolate flavor. It tastes more caramel-ly and has a nice soft texture. Slight aftertaste, but not bothersome. My tub is one of the newly produced ones with a label that says "New and improved taste!" with the pink lid. It really is hard to resist, because it's like candy.
