To be honest, Tums QuikPak actually made me very nervous at first. I was worried that they would sacrifice the functionality of the product for taste, or even vice verse. However, when I first tried one of the packs, I was surprised to find that they taste very good. They have this berry taste that's a little fruity but not necessarily in a bad way. The texture, as always with Tums, is a little iffy, but not difficult to stomach. What made me most excited was that they worked as well as regular Tums as far as I could tell. Although it's not particularly a bad feeling, I always feel weird with the powder on my tongue, waiting for the powder to dissolve. The QuikPak isn't any more convenient or effective than original Tums, so I don't really see the point. However, if the QuikPak was cheaper the the regular Tums, I would have no reserve in purchasing the QuikPak, but at equal price, I would always choose the regular Tums.
