I think that Nature Made actually makes one that has a "non-fishy" taste to it. But for me, I take the regular ones since I don't really taste much since it blends in with whatever food I'm eating.

I found I did better if I took the capsules before bed. Less burping and no fishy taste or upset stomach like taking with breakfast.

it seems like the better brand of Omega 3 doesn't leave the fish oil taste. I have no problem, but hubby is allergic to fish so he can't take them at all.

Yep find a better brand. You shouldn't get fish burps. Also make sure they are ecentric coated.

or you could go liquid. Carlson's is a good brand. Don't worry there are flavoured liquid brands.

I was thinking about when my kids were little in the 60's and we used to give them oleum pecamorphum which was highly concentrated fish oil. We would give them 5 drops in a dropper directly out of the bottle. The little ones would smack their lips as they loved it! It was a gagging smell. Much worse that the fish oil burp, and even earlier times than that, in the 40's everyone of us kids in the family were lined up at bedtime for a large tablespoon of codliver oil. MMMM. So I say, it AIN'T so bad to have an occasional fish burp.

I was once told that if the pills are cold they are easier to take... not sure if it's true or not.. but you could try.
