Why are antacids so disgusting?

Seriously, if your tummy is already upset, couldn't they make them taste a little better? =)

  • Maybe so kids won't eat them.

  • I agree! Speaking as a person who has had her thyroid gland removed...did you know that little gland helps regulate the calcium in your body?...I have to eat tums by the dozens several times a day for awhile until my body works things out...or I get pins and needles in my hands and feel sorry for me please! I have to eat those nasty things all day and I don't have stomach trouble.

  • Tums Smoothies aren't that bad. They kind of remind me of Smarties actually.
    There's just only so much they can do to improve the taste :)

  • I think also they dont want to make them taste TOO good or ppl would eat them when they didnt need to.
