I bought these to top up my calcium intake to make sure I'm not deficient (and also to take in combination with D3). I'm not good with swallowing tablets, so these were perfect. The taste is really sweet, but it doesn't take long to eat, so that's okay. I believe they are of good quality as my blood tests have shown my calcium and vit d levels have improved. The packaging is great, I like that its a dark glass, to keep the ingredients in good condition. Highly recommend for anyone of any age - kids should be okay with them as they're pretty much just sugar!
