It is Halloween.
Here, at last, is a truly useful review for all of us:
Equate Antacid Tablets
|You can pick one of these bad boys up for less that 4 bucks at your local Wally World|
The texture is, in a word, chalky. They chew rather easily and it is very easy to imagine yourself as the rock-eater from Neverending Story. The flavor is strong without being overpowering. It definitely leaves a fresh minty feeling in the mouth. I quick inhale over teeth and tongue after swallowing will give you a great freeze-rush in the mouth.
These are not the full size tablets you may be accustomed to in a TUMS 1000 or similar. But I find that this smaller and thinner tablet makes it easier to dose when you don't need 2 or 3 of the big guys. They're also much larger than the pocket rolls of Rolaids. These are the nickels to those quarters and dimes.
But do they work? Absolutely! I find I am getting almost instantaneous relief as soon as I swallow. I will say that there is some chemical reactions at work here once it reaches your stomach. Gas is the first thing I usually notice (have you ever put baking soda and vinegar together?). Furthermore, don't chase these with a slurp of Coke. You may find that you lose esophageal integrity and get some backflow into your head.
