I'm partially posting this as an endorsement, and partially to see if anyone else has had expreience with this product. A few months ago I purchased a 90-day supply of fish oil from a company called i-herb.com. Rather than pills, someone came up with an ingenious (??) idea of synthesizing a day's dosage into a sugar-free, orange-creme-flavored paste that comes in packets. About the size of a ketchup packet. Just rip off the top, squeeze, gulp down, and done! I'm not sure about the potency/dosage issues, but it sure tastes good and it's a whole lot more convenient than swallowing pill after pill each day!

Could no longer find the product on iherb.com, but the brand is Coromega OMEGA-3. I found a 90-packet supply for about $20 on vitacost.com, which is about how much I paid for my original supply. Not a bad deal, I'm thinkin.

Don't know about this one, but there is a free offer from the parent company.

Lets get some volunteers to objectively evaluate this one and post back.

Same price, different site. I ordered the free sample, should take about 3 weeks to arrive. This is $20 for 90 packets.

I've used these (briefly) . . . my local health food store sells 'em.

I like them, very tasty, but the cost makes them prohibitive . . . pills are cheaper, and the straight liquid is more convenient if you're taking large doses.
