Best Tasting Tums EVERRRR

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

Let me just say these are just as effective as the regular tums but they have a better taste. I've been bloated for ever a week now and when I took 2 tums ... Within 10 minutes I started feeling relieved. I use other things for bloating but I think I will just stick with tums because of its effectiveness. It is more than easy to use. Just take 1-2 tablets and chew them up. That's as easy as it gets. It's better than pills to me.

Immediate Relief

By 

from USA

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

During my pregnancies, I had horrible heartburn. Tums Smoothies were a safe and effective way to control my heartburn symptoms. Tums were recommended by my doctor as I was losing weight due to issues related to the heartburn.

Immediacy
The immediate relief Tums Smoothies provides helps me deal with minor heartburn issues, particularly at night. If I am feeling symptoms, I simply chew one and I feel better immediately. I often reach for Tums rather than stronger medications because I do not have to wait to feel the effects.

Smooth dissolving & fast heartburn relief!

By 

from Boulder, CO

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

I had never experienced heartburn until recently, and man, is it painful and unbelievably uncomfortable! I hadn't taken TUMS since I was much younger (as a calcium supplement) and I remember really hating the taste and texture of them. I saw TUMS Smoothies at my local grocery store when I was desperately searching for something to give me some relief from my heartburn. The package said that they went down smoothly and worked quickly, so I figured I would give them a try. I can't believe how much better these are than the regular TUMS! They practically dissolve in your mouth and they actually taste good-and relieve heartburn pretty quickly!

Effectiveness
I don't think I have the most severe heartburn out there, but these were very very effective for me. The second I start to feel the uncomfortable burning pain after eating a trigger food I chew up two of these and I'm cured after about 20 minutes! I don't really have a chronic issue with heartburn, so I am not sure if someone with a more serious issue would find these to be effective enough but I would say they are worth a try!

Ease of Use
This is the EASIEST chewable supplement/medication I have ever tried! Calling them 'Smoothies' is the perfect description, because they aren't chalky or grainy-they dissolve quickly and just slide down your throat. I am very picky about the taste of medications and these are the easiest to stomach!

Immediacy
These definitely aren't an INSTANT fix...but not many things in this world are. I start to feel almost complete relief after about 15-20 minutes, which is pretty quick compared to many medications which can take up to an hour to kick in. I think the wait period is about as short as you're gonna get when it comes to most over the counter medications.

Tums Smoothies

By 

from Island Park, NY

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

Antacids aren't very exciting, but they're extremely useful when heartburn rolls around.  Unfortunately, I get heartburn all too often, thanks to acid reflux. Ouch.  I'm on prescriptions to treat the reflux, but it's not 100% effective.  These Tums Smoothies in Cocoa and Creme flavors are my go-to antacid when my reflux flares up.  I'm so glad I found them!  For one thing, they live up to their name.  Unlike most chewable antacids, these "Smoothies" aren't gritty and overly chalky. They break down well in the mouth and slide down the throat smoothly, indeed.  No gritty leftover bits are left behind.  I wouldn't want to eat one of these for fun, but the taste is pretty inoffensive.  The cocoa one has a chocolatey sort of taste, while the creme one is sweet and sort of vanilla-y.  Not bad.  And they work!  They really do ease the burn of all but the worst of heartburn attacks, making it much easier to get through the day.  If you've got heartburn, these are worth a try!

instant relief

By 

from Rockford, IL

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

I have a very sensitive stomach and/or digestive system and many different types of food can set me off. I have tried numerous over the counter digestive aid products and this one seems to work the best for me. I tend to shy away from the stronger medications because of possible side effects so Tums is perfect for me. I have tried many of the different flavors as well and I tend to favor this one because it actually tastes somewhat pleasant. It also works quickly. In fact, most of the time I only need to take one tablet to stop my heartburn pain. I have even cut the tablet in half and that has also worked in a pinch to ease my pain. They dissolve easily and although they are a bit gritty/chalky they aren't bad tasting. They tend to work better for me if I let them dissolve in my mouth rather than chewing them and swallowing them immediately. If you are wondering if they really do taste like cocoa and cream, the answer is pretty close.

My Go-To Heartburn Medicine!

By 

from Sussex, WI

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

Tums Smoothies offer great heartburn relief.  The texture is nice and smooth, as the name suggests.  There is a very minimal chalkiness, unlike other heartburn medicines that I've tried/used.  I prefer the assorted fruit flavor and the mixed berry flavor over the mint flavor.  I have not tried the cocoa and creme or any other flavors. 

These were an absolute godsend during my pregnancy and I don't know how I would've gotten through with out them!   I had horrible heartburn every single day, no matter what I ate--it could've been a saltine cracker, and I'd get heartburn... even just drinking water was rough!  Tums smoothies really helped me get through that uncomfortable time, and I'm so glad!

I would definitely recommend these-  I still have times when I need them, so I always keep them handy.  It's so nice to have them around when heartburn flairs up again.  It's really so much better than staying up all night because you ate something that didn't agree with you!

best, BEST tasting product on the market

By 

from Rio Rancho, NM

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

Tums Smoothies are the best tasting antacid on the market and believe me I have tried quite a few.  When I was pregnant with my second child, heartburn was a daily, hourly, minutely challenge.  The secretary at my school  offered Tums Smoothies up when I ran out one day adn came to her looking miserable.  I was hooked!  Not only do they taste great, they do not leave a gritty or chalky  after taste like so many others.  They aren't overly sweet and have a nice mild fruit flavor.  The texture is smooth and both assorted fruit and mixed berry are delicious.  So good, I sometimes take an extra!  Tums Smoothies works fast and effective also.  Granted, I have gone back for a 3rd sometimes when something has bothered me too much.  Overall this is a great product.  The Smoothies taste great, don't leave a funky after taste or even worse gritty, chalky residue.  They are available easily at big box stores.  I would buy them again and again.

Helps Hurtburn; Good Flavor

By 

from Plano, TX

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

My husband and I live on these Tum's.  It seems like the older we get, the less we can eat without getting hurtburn.  Whenever I cook spaghetti or anything with red sauce, we just go ahead and have two Tum's as dessert because it is a proven fact that we will wake up in the middle of the night with killer heartburn if we don't.  Tum's are the best too.  It prevents us from getting heartburn if we take it in advance but it also ends heartburn immediately if we don't take it in time.  We love this flavor too.  It is so good.  We eat them like candy and why not?  It's like taking a calcium supplement.  I even ate these while I was pregnant and didn't need to worry about any harmful affects.  We love these Tum's and you can guarantee that we always have some in our medicine cabinet and if we are traveling, we always take the a travel size with us.  This is instant relief.  I would recommend these Tum's to anybody that has heartburn problems.

Boy, have Tums come a long way...Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable

By 

from Tarpon Springs, FL

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

**I have been using Tums for about 11 years now, since I found out I was pregnant.  i Was fortunate enought, I guess, I didnt have morning sickness. What I did have was heartburn.  Correct that, extreme heartburn.  Tums was the only thing my doctor recommended.  They werent my favorite, but they helped.**

**I use them even now, but boy how they have changed.  The new Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets are delicious.  They are a little like gummy bears and the flavors are good.  They even have a cocoa and cream flavor.**

**It is still my go to medince for heartburn.  **

Tums Smoothies are the BEST for my heartburn and taste great!

By 

from Provo, UT

Comments about Tums Smoothies Antacid Chewable Tablets:

Whenever I get heartburn, which is at least a couple times a week, Tums Smoothies are the first I turn to at night.  These Smoothies are wonderful!  THey have a very smooth texture that is not chalky or gross.  They seem to melt in my mouth.  I love the fruity flavor the best (there is a chocolate creme one that seriously taste gross though, like those NECCOS candy----yuk). My wife likes this kind as well.  I don't have to chomp on it forever---it really just melts and comes apart in your mouth and 2 for me do the trick usually.  They are portable, smell good, and quite honestly I would eat them even if I didn't have to (I think these have calium in them right?) and so are healthy as well to get my daily calcium.  I so much prefer these to the previous TUms versions and anything else that is out there to choose for my heartburn.  Thank goodness for TUMS Smoothies---taste great and work to make my heartburn go away quickly.
