DeadThanks to our teachers...there just HAD to be one more thing I needed to learn.
Really, 'Kevin'? Chalk WITHOUT hot sauce?!
Dead...maybe a little 'flavor enhancement' would help?

So where is the alka & where is the seltzer in a fruit chew?

That's like Pepto Bismal potato chips or something.

Don't let a suitcase filled with cheese be your big fork & spoon.

Nice point. The obvious never hit me - no plop, no fizz, just relief.

Are Tums that horrible?  Is Kevin such a 7 y/o that he needs fruity chewy antacid?  Maybe so.  I see there's another commercial that advertises the equivalent of chewy Flintstone vitamins for adults---I guess because taking actual adult-style vitamins is too much to expect from doofuses like Kevin.

WinkIt's o.k. Thor - the market is now pandering to our children and those young enough to be our grandchildren, the 'new adults' - 'Generation Haribo'.

Yeah, back in the day the remedy for heartburn was to whack your thumb with a hammer. That took your mind off your indigestion pretty quick.

Sam's Club chalk antacids all day long. Taste better'n Tumms, and about 1/6 the cost.
Hmm... a world without children. Future generations will thank us.

Come up with an antacid pizza or cheeseburger & you've got my attention.

Or maybe antacid chocolate ice cream.

Come up with those & I'm all in.

The latest thing I've hear about treating heartburn & acid reflux is to put some of that nasal saline solution in your nostrils & let it drain back into your throat.

Saw Dr. Oz talking about it & my mom who's suffered from it said it really works.

So I tried it & damned if it didn't!!!

^^^That's interesting but makes me wonder if drinking a little salt water would achieve the same thing.

The best I've had were these lemon-creme ones that came in a roll---either Mylanta or Maalox.  I dunno if they still make 'em, though.  This was like 20 years ago.

(slowly raising hand...) Cry I use the gummy vitamins. Or the liquid ones. I can't swallow those huge horse pills. Choked on 3 separate occassions and brother, that is NOT something to laugh at. Scared the ever loving snot out of me.

Who the heck would chalk to relieve heartburn?
