Whether you’re stocking up on your favorite flavor or making sure you have a selection of chewable flavors on hand, the Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate Chewable 500mg, 3-Pack Value Bundle provides convenience and savings.
At first the texture puts you off but these are great if you give them a chance! The cinnamon is my favorite because if you bite into it, which you're not supposed to do, it gives a bite back forcing me to let it dissolve as intended. They remind me of red hearts. The chocolates taste just like dutched cocoa, and when you can't have your choco fix this is a wonderful thing! The Wild Cherry which I thought would be my favorite are actually a bit sweet for my new palate. I haven't tried the mint. All in all I'm getting my calcium in a tasty treat AND they are 0 calories so it's a no brainer. The Citrical chews taste good, but they have 35 calories per chew... that's 105 calories you're wasting on your calcium supplement when you could be enjoying Bariatric Advantage lozenges instead!
This calcium supplement is very palatable. I especially like the cinnamon flavor. The vitamin D included with the calcium is D3 which I have recently learned is the best D supplement to take. Using this supplement 2 to 3 times a day is sufficient to maintain healthy calcium levels – my lab work has always come back with good levels.
Cinnamon Calcium Citrate
by Lisa on 5/15/2011
The Cinnamon is GREAT!!! I needed a change and thought I would try it. So glad I did. I usually use the chocolate chews and they are great too, but just wanted something different. The Peppermint is good, little like a tums. But, the Cinnamon is great if you like Cinnamon you will like this.
LOVE the Cinnamon flavor
by Jacks on 7/18/2011
I am the last person who remembers to take their vitamins. The cinnamon flavor is so good I actually look forward AND remember to taking them now. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to take a chewable calcium.
by DenseW on 7/20/2011
Love the taste and it's an easy way to take my twice a day calcium. so much better than cutting huge tablets into pieces. Tastes like a chocolate treat.
C is for calcium...sadly not cookie

So you have to take chewable vitamins.....less than exciting, yes? Your only hope is that you can find something you can choke down with out too much regurgitation, yes? Ok good, then this is the one for you. I have only ordered the chocolate one so far, but it really isn't bad.
Now lets not get our hopes up too much here people...this isn't a Hershey bar, its still a vitamin, but for a vitamin the flavor isn't bad.
Imagine if you will, someone busted open a packet of hot coco mix (sans mini marshmallows), threw in some calcium citrate/vit D and compressed it into a tablet as big around as a quarter and as thick as 3 quarters stacked on top of each other. Well then, you have successfully determined the size and flavor of the chocolate version of this supplement.
I totally would recommend it, the flavor isn't amazing, but can you really expect a vitamin based supplement to be out of this world? Probably not. Its not too chalky, and its a manageable flavor with a decent price. You should buy it.
Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate

This has been a life saver! I struggle with getting enough calcium in and this makes it easy for me to take while on the go. I am required to take a large amount of calcium and I can take these along as a snack and take them throughout the day until I have my amount in. The taste isn't bad either!
by pam on 9/13/2012
I disagree with several of the others. I have tried chocolate and cinnamon and both are great. I look forward to my little treat. Yes they are I guess chalky but I also "used to" happen to like smarties which really have that same consistency.
I like these!
A Good Product!
by Connie on 4/6/2013
I love milk, but I don't drink it when I'm trying to diet. Taking calcium supplements relieves my worry about protecting my bones. These chewables are easy to use and taste good. I bought them on sale and got a great deal on the large jar.
by Linda on 5/23/2013
they are tasty, and it is so much easier to chew 3 of these then to swallow 8 capsules
Cinnamon Calcium Citrate
by Sandi on 5/24/2013
Love the flavor and every check up my calcium levels are good. Would highly recommend them.
by brenda on 8/26/2013
The wild cherry is the best! I let two tablets melt in my mouth every day, doctors orders, ever since surgery in 2005. Good taste. Good price. Easy ordering. Free shipping, and free stuff with every order.
by Sue on 10/14/2014
I have read some of the reviews about this product stating it's chalky and tastes bad.......... I happen to think it's GREAT !!! I have been using this product for over 5 years and love it. Haven't even tried another product because I have been so pleased with this.
by Cheryl on 12/14/2014
The chocolate flavor is really good. Enjoy flavor very much. Best way to get your Calcium after you have had a gastric bypass. The 3 pack value is very economical in pricing.
by jec on 3/5/2011
Pretty Good. They are a little chalky, but have a good taste with a zap to it - not quite sour but it makes it much more pleasant. The tablets are huge and a serving of 3 a day is a lot to get down sometimes. (Updated on 3/6/2011.)
by unc2004 on 6/1/2011
very tasty & not too chalky!
Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate, 500mg
by lorigwen on 1/3/2012
I ordered the Cinnamon as I saw good reviews on it. If you like Cinnamon HOT candies, you will like. I thought they were really hot and found out I need to take smaller bites. It is not like the candy of course but they are still good. Would like to try other flavors.
by QTalley on 6/18/2012
I recently refilled my supply of the calcium citrate with the Cinnamon flavor tabs. This flavor is much tastier than the almost inedible chocolate ones. To be fair, the chocolate tabs seemed okay the first two weeks or so, but after that I found them to be intolerable. The Cinnamon flavor tabs on the other hand are tasty and much easier to tolerate for long periods of time. I actually look forward to taking these tabs in a way I never looked forward to taking the chocolate tabs.
Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate, 500mg
by Jenni on 8/30/2012
I ordered the Cinnamon flavor tabs even after reading reviews of how strong some thought they were and I really like them. You can expect a calcium supplement to have a chalky taste, but this is much better and I don't feel like I am eating calcium. Definitely recommend.
Calcium - chocolate
by ladielake on 6/13/2012
Definately would not take these for pleasure, but not bad as a necessary supplement. Like getting easy to digest chewables!
these tablets are very chalky tasting
by cathy on 4/19/2013
too chalky almost chokes me while chewing
Good for a chewable
by Sue on 5/23/2013
I've tried cherry, chocolate and cinnamon. I had sampled all before my gastric by-pass surgery and really liked the cinnamon and after the surgery my tastes seemed to change. I bought the 270 bottle and found the cinnamon way too strong. It made me cry almost every time and so happy the bottle is almost empty. The chocolate didn't seem to have the chocolate taste I wanted. The cherry is pretty good. The only one I haven't tried is the mint and wish there was a review for it. Time to order more and not sure which one to order.
These tablets could be more fruity!!
by Tracy Ann on 8/30/2013
I was originally taking the Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate Caramel chews, and wanted to change them, so I tried these. I like them, but I feel the cherry flavor is very blah! I think it could taste better. Overall, I give it a 3 star rating. Hope you can improve it!
chocolate chalk- horrible
by indywitch on 6/29/2012
I got the chocolate calcium and have never tasted something so gross-- think chalk mixed with unsweetened hershey baking cocoa. Given how big these are and trying to swallow them I feel (and look) like a cat about to [get rid of] a fur ball. I am ordering a different flavor and getting rid of these...and try a different flavor.
Calcium Citrate Wild Cherry
by RMB on 4/11/2013
Since my weight loss surgery, I have tried many different Calcium
Citrates. The retail grocery stores gummies seem to be the best tasting, but they also have the sugar to go with it. The Bariatric Advantage Calcium Citrate Wild Cherry flavor didn't have the best cherry flavor I've tried and I was a bit disappointed. I think the cinnamon flavor is superior.
SOUR piece of chalk....
by Ashley on 5/26/2013
I like the brand of vitamin, but I wont be purchasing the Wild Cherry flavor again. The pill itself is like chewing a piece of chalk. The Wild Cherry is EXTREMELY sour! I have to break it into peices in order to tolerate the tartness. If you like sour flavors this would be perfect for you! Good Luck :)
Like Eating Pure Chalk
by Pat_G on 4/22/2010
These sounded so promising, and I had been missing the taste of chocolate, but eating these lozenges was no more pleasant than eating a large stick of chalk from the blackboard. I tried to get used to them, but they were truly awful, and I threw the whole container out. On the other hand, the chewables are great in chocolate and lemon, just not as much calcium citrate as the chalk!
by jojo on 2/14/2011
This product is barely edible. Even being a lozenge, it is overpowering in its taste AND aftertaste. If you place it in the pill dispenser, the flavor permeates the other pills and medicines. I can't wait to finish the bottle so I will not have to taste this product again.
Regretfully - Joanne
Bad Calcium Citrate
by on 8/30/2012
I ordered Chewable Calcium Citrate Lozenges wild cherry. What I received was chalky horrible tablets. I thought I had ordered wrong so I tried again and definitely clicked on lozenges, chocolate due to the revues. Again, I received chalky gross huge tablets. I called and spoke to a very nice person who indicated this is what they are selling now. Not lozenges. I am returning these two bottles right away.
This product is awful!!
by twilkerson on 8/30/2012
I would not recommend these to my worst enemy!! I got the chocolate flavored ones thinking it would be sorta a snack for me...but boy was I wrong. They taste like you have a mouth full of unsweetened cocoa!! The powder in the chewable pill is so strong that it nearly chokes me!! I am trying to choke them down so I don't waste my money, but not sure if it's gonna happen!!
Bariatric Adv Calcium Citrate - Mint
by Marla on 3/24/2013
Do not like the mint flavor at all. :(
So very bad
by Cindy on 5/13/2013
Chalky doesn't begin to describe this sensation...this is bad enough to trigger a gag reflex.

As a Registered Dietitian with extensive experience in weight management as well as the author of several books including The Complete Idiot’s Guide To The Mediterranean Diet (Alpha, Dec. 2010) and The Everything Nutrition Book (Adams Media, 2003), I consider the WonderSlim® Diet Plan to be a useful tool in the fight against obesity.
The WonderSlim® Diet Plan incorporates pre-portioned, nutritionally designed WonderSlim diet products along with real foods to help create a program that is easy to follow, nutritionally balanced and highly effective for both men and women. The Program is specifically designed to keep a person eating higher protein foods, every 2 to 3 hours, which can aid in hunger and satiety issues. The WonderSlim® Diet Plan is designed to teach people how to maintain weight once they have reached their healthy weight loss goal. As with any weight management program, physical activity should be part of a healthier lifestyle. Always check with your physician before starting any weight loss and/or exercise program.
