I took Vitamin C pills for a while, and have used several different brands, including Sunkist. These chewables taste more like candy than anything, and I've never experienced any negative side effects from taking them. I would liken the taste to a Lifesaver or Jolly Rancher. I usually took two tablets a day, sometimes one. I didn't notice any changes in how I felt, but I didn't feel any worse after taking the pills for the extended amount of time that I did. These vitamins are pretty cheap, and worth the price. I do think that like any vitamin, Sunkist chewables should be taken with water and a full meal. Otherwise, you are likely to have some stomach upset. Overall, the vitamins taste great, are not such a chore to take every day, and are definitely affordable. I would recommend them to anyone who was medically advised to take Vitamin C or who simply wants to supplement their diet.
