"After weight loss surgery, many people are asked to take a daily iron supplement. At Bariatric Advantage, we recognize that iron may not be your favorite part of the day, but we try hard to make it better.
We have now taken chewable iron to the next level with our delicious chocolate-raspberry truffle flavored iron Chewy Bite. Each decadent soft chew gives you 30mg of elemental iron and 60mg of vitamin C to support absorption.
These chews are sugar-free as well, so you don’t have to worry about getting extra carbs while you get the iron you need. Each chew is individually wrapped so you can take them with you wherever you go."
Skeptical, I was. Iron, chewy? Then again I have had chewy calcium and have been blown away by the taste from Bariatric Advantage, so it's not like I should be scared to try this, you know.
The chewy iron bites from are the same size as the calcium chews, small squares, wrapped singly in foil for on-the-go.
Each bite contains 30 mg. of iron and 60 mg. of Vitamin C to aid in iron absorption.
I got this email just after I posted, also : "FYI, I just chatted with a rep and the iron in these is Ferronyl and the sweetener is Sucralose, woot. So (at least for me) this means no tummy trouble/good absorption."
Directions are to chew ONE daily, or as directed. depending on your iron needs.
The chewy bite smells slightly chocolaty with just a touch of raspberry, but only the tiniest hint.
Okay, biting it now, taking half. It's a chewy --- smooth -- candy-like texture. It's chocolate with a raspberry finish. It's a lot like soft creamy Tootsie Roll with a touch of berry flavor.
There is ZERO grit and no aftertaste.
I am chewing the other half now, just to be sure.
Waiting. Nope. Totally good. That's the way to make a chewy bite.
No photos? 'Cause I only had ONE.
