Stop! Gummi Time!

Those who have known me for a long time know that for most of the last twelve years or so, I used Flintstones chewable vitamins.  I wanted to take a daily multivitamin, but I cant stand the pill form vitamins I’ve tried, and the Chewables seemed like a nice compromise.

(And before you protest that Flintstone’s Chewables are for kids, I will inform you that they are often suggested by doctors for pregnant women who can’t stomach neonatal vitamins without nausea.  If they’re good enough for pregnant women, they’re good enough for me.)

When I got to Germany, I found that it was difficult to easily find the sorts of things that I used to just walk into Walgreen’s for back in the US.  The brands just aren’t always available.    When I ran out of my Flintstone’s, I had to decide what to do about my vitamin intake.  This is what I decided on:  Gummi Bear vitamins.  I eat a few of these every day.  It’s fun.  And tasty.  And it’s theoretically healthy, too.

  1. When I was pregnant I took chewable neo-natal vitamins. My son’s a fan of Flintstones. I don’t buy the Gummi ones because of the fish oil, but they’re cute!

  2. And how do they taste? Like normal Gummi Bears or a little bit ‘healthier’ so you don’t eat the whole tub at once?

    • Fiona, they taste better than regular gummis, in my opinion. I have trouble not eating too many. Heh.
