Calcet Creamy Calcium Citrate Bites in Chocolate

Our USPS delivery woman just came.  I am sure she's afraid of my beast - because the box from Celebrate Vitamins was totally abandoned in the middle of the yard.  I am glad I found it when I did, so it wasn't shredded to bits or melted!

 Good for peanut butter.

BUT!  I have them!  I have been talking about this product for months.  And?  Months.  And they're finally HERE.

I immediately went outside to take pictures, because I'm a big dork, and Tristan asked for the bubble wrap.  Fail.  No bubbles.  Instead, she got paper and a box and went straight to town filling it.

And, guess what?  The 'blister packaging' is easier to open.  Celebrate talked to the manufacturer and made them change it because MM bitched about it.  (Or so I'd like to think.)  DSC_8903 

Oh, you again?  It's been so long since our last rendezvous. I didn't even have to do the requisite SNIFF, STARE, NIBBLE that I do with every product review.  I just sort of inhaled it.  Okay, well, I took half a bite, as delicately as I could to show you the insides, because the highly-photoshopped Calcet Calcium Chews freaked me out.

It's a little kinda-sorta brownie bite.  Not so much a vitamin and/or supplement so much as a piece of candy, kids.  

It's soft, with a chocolaty coating, and creamy, but airy chocolate center.  Very light and easy to eat, not at all chewy, gooey, caramel-y (as I saw it described on another site selling them) or heavy.  I cannot taste the calcium, it's quite sweet, there's no obvious grit either, which you might find in a calcium supplement.

Which, can be a problem, if you have a problem with keeping your paws outtatheboxofthecalciumchews.  It happens.  A suggestion?  If you really like a product like THIS, and it gets you to take calcium you otherwise might not, get the packets broken up and split up into daily allotments ASAP before you just leave the box chilling in the kitchen.  Y'know, if you're likely to go for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6... at a time.

It's funny though, WHY CAN'T WE HAVE A PROBLEM LIKE THAT WITH OTHER STUFF?  HUH?  :x
