Flintstones Vitamins with iron are cool.
If you’re like me, then you forget to take your vitamins on a daily basis. Your mom might call you while you’re away at college and ask, “Did you take your fish oil today?” To which you’ll reply, “Um I don’t remember. Maybe? Love you byeeee.” First of all, why my mom still calls me to ask about my vitamin-taking habit might tell you that she is possibly a “helicopter parent,” but let’s get past that. Second of all, taking a vitamin full of fish oil is the last thing I want to do in the morning. Sure, I love being healthy as much as the next girl, but what if the capsule leaks into my mouth and I taste actual fish oil right after I finish eating my (delicious and gluten-free) Honey Nut Chex? Ew. Just, ew.
So what do you do when taking gross-sounding vitamins makes you want to gag? Take Flinstones Vitamins, of course! My doctor actually told me to start taking these because she apparently sensed I was mature and stuff like that. At first when she suggested them, I was like, “What? Lady, are you a real doctor? I haven’t taken those since I was like seven-years-old. They’re for children. Also, the grape flavor was nasty.” But when she explained that this delightful multivitamin (plus iron) would help give me some extra energy and prevent me from getting sick (or thinking I’m sick. I have some bad hypochondria), I decided to try it. It was actually pretty good. My first pick was the red one. That used to be my favorite so I thought I’d ease myself back into the habit. It as actually pretty good! Fruity, maybe cherry-flavored? They even added a new flavor: peach! It’s probably my new favorite. Grape is still kind of weird-tasting, but whatever, I can dig it.
Now, I am a firm supporter of Flintstones Vitamins. I’m sure all the varieties are great, but I like the one with iron because it helps when you’re low on energy (or so I’m told). So, next time you’re at your local grocery store, pick up a pack and get to being healthy!
