  • It just doesn’t work or taste all that pleasant served this way

      While I am a fan of mixed vegetable drinks, my mother and sister beat me with their zeal for this particular beverage. I am more a lover of fruit drinks myself. Maybe it is the fact that I have a sweet tooth, or maybe I just don’t enjoy the flavour as much, but if I have the choice between a vegetable drink or a fruit box, I’ll go with the latter every time. This said, I do enjoy the occasional vegetable drink, and usually this is health wise due to the fact that I have discovered that a veggie drink offers more nutrients and less sugar in the long run. My mom and sis have usually tried out every brand of vegetable drink that has ever been created, and most of them that were

      on sale, and I have sampled these drinks at the same time, for my own pleasure and also out of curiosity.

      That was why we all were a little curious about V8’s line of V8 V-Fusion drinks. If you haven’t seen the ads for these or passed them in your local grocery store, V8 V-Fusion drinks are a strange mixture of both a vegetable and fruit drink. Yeah. It sounds odd to begin with, I know. Mixing both the veggies and fruits together, V8 has come up with a pretty original idea, probably due to the altogether strangeness of the concept. When you stop and think about it, maybe it isn’t so odd. Tomatoes are technically a fruit and they serve as the basis of most vegetable drinks and a whole lot of other beverages,


      • soups and sauces. Still, with this knowledge, the initial reaction, at least to my family and I, is perplexing and one of mild disgust.

        In spite of this disgust we still had to try it. Seeing that the bottles are quite large, akin to V8’s own large size, we decided to buy one when it went on sale, which was fairly soon. Bringing home the large bottle, on the consent of our mother, it sat on the kitchen table for a while, none of us initially finding the courage to be the first to try it. Our mother eventually decided to be the bravest and go first. She wasn’t won over and her comments to us showed just what she thought of the beverage. When my sister and I tried it next, simultaneously, we had

        the same reaction.

        I don’t know if fruit and vegetables were supposed to mix in liquid form. It’s not the same success as having pineapple on a pizza, and the whole reaction was not completely negative but not positive in any way. For the V8 V-Fusion that we tried that first time, I read the ingredients and discovered that Yams were used in its creation. Now Yams are sweet potatoes and frankly, I’ve never even heard of these being used in a vegetable drink. It just doesn’t work or taste all that pleasant served this way.

        The unfinished jug of V8 V-Fusion drink sat for weeks in my fridge not being touched, until it was finally thrown out. We have never purchased any more of it knowing that it would, in all likely hood, suffer a similar fate.
