Great taste and super value. An easy way to get the supplemental Calcium required after bariatric surgery
Caramel, yum ~ Orange, ick!

The raspberry flavor of the BA CalCitr Chewy Bites is by far my favorite. This taste preference is one of the few things that has been a constant for me since surgery. The drawback? The raspberry flavor is available only in the 250mg dosage, meaning that I must take 4 daily. When Diet Direct began selling the 500mg dosage chews, I knew I had to try them. Of the available flavors, I would rate caramel as the best tasting, as would my hubby. He says the peanut butter chocolate is "ok". I won't even try that one as the flavor combination normally in a candy didn't ever taste good to me. This time I decided to sample the orange flavor. Omgosh, it is horrid. Hubby doesn't care for itm but his taste buds don't rebel against it as vehemently as mine do.
Anyone who has had a Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass knows that there is a possibility your tastes in foods and flavors will change following surgery. What has been surprising to me are the continued changes I feel 1.5 years post surgery. I'm learning to roll with it. :) For now, I simply cannot bear the flavor of the orange ones and will go back to the lower dosage raspberry ones. The cost difference is unfortunate, but I must have vitamins I know I'll be willing to take and not avoid.
