I’d like to thank you for the service your TUMS Extra Strength antacid/calcium supplements provide me. I can safely go to sleep with minty fresh breath, chalky residue on my tongue, and positively fortified with calcium – all in an effort to treat my “sour stomach caused by excess stomach acidity.” Please make no mention that the acidity is caused by the litre of coffee I drink each day.
I have a couple small complaints though. First off, why is there a maximum of 5 tablets a day? Really? Because we both know that I devour these things like candy, and other than the aforementioned minty breath and chalky residue, is it actually all that bad for me?
And going back to the mint thing… Why is it that I can get “Freshmint” TUMS that contain all white tablets, or “Assorted Mint” TUMS that contain a mixture of white and green tablets – but not all green tablets? We know that those are the tastiest ones. Are you hording them? Is there a shortage of spearmint that I’m not aware of? If not, then please be giving up the all green bottle of TUMS shortly. Because we both know that I’m financing Glaxo, Smith, and Kline’s childrens’ college educations considering the amount of TUMS I ingest yearly.
Thank you for your consideration, and my filmy tongue.
