Great Tasting, but Rough & Slow to Dissolve.
 September 17, 2014
"Sublingual is absolutely the way to go when supplementing B12. Also, you really need to take methylcobalamin versus cyanocobalamin. That's why I chose this product. However, I have not purchased another bottle.
First off, they taste good as cherry, no complaints there. However, they take ages to dissolve under the tongue. Plus, as they dissolve, they're rough and can irritate the delicate tissue under your tongue, especially if you agitate it to try to dissolve it faster.
After it's finally dissolved, or you give up and chew the rest, it leaves breath not so good. The flavor lingers and turns into a not-so-tasty cherry after-taste that isn't pleasant in my opinion.
So, this product does have positives. It has the best absorbed form of B-12, Methylcobalamin in a tasty sublingual flavor. But, I don't care for the other aspects. I've thus changed to a liquid B-Complex (also Vitacost brand) and am thrilled with it."

Does not dissolve easily.

"I was looking for a cheaper alternative, and it was cheaper, but will go back to my previous brand, just because it dissolves quickly."

This Methyl B-12 is one of my favorites.

"The sublingual tablets melt so easily and they are tasty too.
I always prefer a Methylcobalamin when I buy B-12 and this is one of the best.

Good for the price

"I gave it 4 stars because it takes a while for the quickdrop to melt in your mouth and I am not the most patient kind. Other than that it's fine - pleasant taste. Too early to see results I guess, but I have more energy overall (I am also taking D3, calcium, magnesium and zinc)."

Not what I was hoping for.
 December 30, 2013
"I thought these would be the kind of tablet that dissolved under the tongue quickly and got into your system quickly.
The taste is fine (due to mannitol and sorbitol), but the texture is closer to a baby aspirin than anything else. It rarely dissolves under my tongue before its presence becomes very annoying, and I find myself chewing it just to move it along!
I hope that chewing it does not diminish the effectiveness as much. But if you want a true sublingual delivery, these are not the ones to get."

Very effective!
 December 9, 2013
"I started taking these as I had a B12 deficiency. I took one tablet everyday for 2 months and my blood work showed a huge improvement which proves that this really works. It tastes pretty good and is easy to use. however, I'm not giving it 5 stars only because it is not really a quick dissolve tablet. It does take a while to dissolve."

hard to dissolve but taste good
 December 5, 2013
"Works good for energy but too hard like so many on the market. Takes so long to dissolve I end up chewing it. I now throw it in my breakfast smoothie. Taste and price are good but I want my Methylcobalamin B-12 to really be sublingual not in name only. I'll keep searching for a soft one."

Good for vegans

"I use this because of being a vegan and having a potential need for the extra vitamin B 12 that could be lacking in my diet.
They are tiny and tasty.
