I Coulda Had a V-8!



When I was at the Campbell's headquarters a couple months ago, they served us a delicious breakfast. Along with the yummy food, they had a variety of drinks out for us to try. I looked at the V-8 V-Fusion and thought, "Ewww! There's just something so wrong about drinking vegetables!" Another blogger overheard me and insisted it didn't taste like veggies, so I gave it a try. I LOVED it! I mean, really LOVED it! I tried the pomegranate blueberry flavor and it was so good! It doesn't taste even a little bit like vegetables! I was so surprised. I mean, I don't like tomato soup. I don't like tomato juice (not even with vodka). Yuck! But this stuff is GOOD!

Later in the day, we were able to taste test all the flavors of V-Fusion and they were really de-lish! The coolest part is that each 8 ounce glass has a full serving of fruits and a full serving of vegetables! So, if you have kids like mine, this is great news! Brooklyn ate a tablespoon of peanut butter and a jelly bean she found in the couch, for lunch yesterday (don't ask). Needless to say, although her diet is high in sugar, ketchup, and chocolate, it's somewhat lacking in actual food and nutrients. But, she loves juice! So I know if she drinks a glass of V-Fusion, she'll get 2 servings from the fruit and vegetable group and that makes me feel good! Plus V-Fusion doesn't have artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or added sugar. Now that's something any mom can feel good about!

Since my Campbell's trip, I've been buying V-Fusion regularly for my kids (and me). This is a product I feel really good about giving to my kids and I try to keep it on hand. Try it for yourselves with this $1 off coupon HERE!

For my readers, Campbell's is offering a case of the new V8 V-Fusion® 100% juice varieties and an embroidered V8 V-Fusion® L.L. Bean tote and boat bag, a retail value of: $75.00. Just leave me a comment here and I'll choose a random winner on Monday, May, 18. Good luck!

Please please please! :)

Sila Lumenn said...

I'm not a big fan of juice. I like orange, grapefruit, cranberry, regular V-8 and tomato exclusively. My family loves V-8 Fusion though and I buy it frequently, so I could definitely use a case of it!

debbie said...

Those look great! Thanks!

Juliana said...

My husband drinks this a lot - and I drink it too! This would be the most perfect prize for our family!

Lyndsay said...

Sounds delish!

snippity1 said...

I like my V8 with a little salt & pepper on top :) I also use it as a base for some soups. We have tried some of the V8 fusions...the kids like it. It is a little expensive to buy in the quantities needed for my childcare, though, so winning a case would be fabulous! Thanks!

Grammy said...

Thanks for this review. I have finicky grandkids and really feel bad that they don't eat right. I never dreamed that kids might like this stuff.

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

Oh how I would LOVE to win this! I love juice and I think I've tried one flavor of this kind. mmmmmm!!!

Donna said...

I absolutely LOVE V-8 Fusion juice. My 20 month old is a very picky eater - like that's unusual; getting her to eat veggies is a huge challenge. But surprise, surprise, she LOVES the Fusion juice. A case of juice would go a long way. Thanks, Dawn!

aaensons said...

i have never tried it but i would love to win so that i could try it

Stacy said...

Thanks for the coupon! I've been curious about this stuff, but not willing to spend money just to have to throw it out when it tastes nasty. Now I can try some!

Katina said...

We LOVE the V8 Fusion juices. Our favorite is the Acai one. I have no idea what an Acai is, but the juice is delicious.

I have tried these but they generally cost more than I am willing to pay for juice. I did get a bottle for 50cents the other day with sale plus coupon. I would love to win some free juice though. We go through juice quickly at our house.

Jess said...

My son loves the stuff, this would be so great to win!

Smiller said...

Sounds good to me!

Candace said...

At e time I drank a lot of V-8 (the regular kind). It is the only vegetable drink that I could even fathom trying as I love tomatoes. However, I have resisted the V-8 Fusion. Fruit flavored vegetable juice just seems weird. I suppose if it were free I could try it ;)

KLM said...

i love the V8 juices!! have you tried the newest one? i forget what it's called but the label is green, i think.

Dawn K. in Michigan said...

My daughter loves V-8 Fusion juice. She first tried it at school of all places and came home and told me about it. It is real good and it doesn't taste like you are drinking a vegetable juice. She would love it if I won a case of it.

Melissa said...

I've been wanting to try this for a while now, but I didn't want to buy the big bottle it comes in only to hate it. I guess I'll break down and try it now. Even better, I'd love to win the case of it and convince my hubby and kids to give it a try!

Kim said...

My son LOVES, LOVES, LOVES this juice. He won't eat actual vegetables, so this juice helps me sleep at night. I have to say, I can't stand it - but we buy lots every week for my little guy.

Natalie Young said...

Love V-8 stuff!

Gayle in NC said...

I bought some of this one time and made popsicles for my kids out of it. They loved them! I'd take the case of it just so I could make sure they are getting healthy pops! I'd also love the tote bag because I always seem to be carrying so much stuff!

Kelly B said...

We LOVE V-8 Fusion at our house. When I read this, my 4 year old daughter even recognized the picture of the bottle and she started cheering, "Fusion, Fusion!"

ladyshanae said...

Hate Veggies, love me some MANGO PEACH V8 Fusion!!! Anything to get my veggie serving in, quite frankly. My son loves veggies, so I don't generally share, but with a whole case....I might.

Glad you gave it a try!

MaBunny said...

I'm still dubious of the tomato juice-blech. But, I am going to try the Fruit Fusion and see what my family thinks.

Dawn V said...

My kids love this juice. And of course it makes my Mom's heart happy to be giving them their veggies too!

Karen said...

The V-8 sounds like a great summer cooler. And a new book for summer reading how great would that be?

Deb said...

Mmmm...that sounds tasty!

Photo Quilts said...

We love all the V-8 Fusion juices good. Excellent for those of us who don't like to eat alot of vegetables.

Cool I love tote bags, I havent tried the juice yet so I am going to use that cool coupon and try it out today.

Harmony said...

My 3 kids always want more juice, and they love the V8 fusions without knowing there are veggies inside. I'd take multiple cases if I could!

JDub said...

Okay, you convinced me to give it a try. Otherwise, who in their right mind would try to "drink" vegetables unless someone told them it was really good!

Adrienne said...

I will defintely have to pick some up today, I have never tried it. But, I am always looking to get my kids some more veggies!

Kerri S said...

Cool!! This is neat.

V8 V fusion is WONDERFUL!!

I LOVE V-8 Fusion...especially with Vodka!!

Karen said...

I've never tried it (I have the same aversion to drinking vegetables) but if I win I'd love to give it a whirl!

Valerie in Ohio said...

The blueberry and acai berry ones are the best!(IMHO) Can get my finicky son to drink some juice once in awhile - so these are great!

Jayne V. said...

I've only tried the Blueberry Pomegranate, but my preschooler and I LOVED it! Would love to try the other varieties.

Ambitious Blonde said...

My son is a big fan of pomegranate anything. This would be a nice prize to win. :)

Gwyneth said...

I LOVE the V-8 fusions, I just wish they were a little cheaper. Lately we can barely afford water (let alone milk) so the juice (healthy or not) doesn't get bought.

Nikki said...

My daughter LOVES V-fusion, even though I can barely get her to eat any veggies. Great juice!

Becca said...

Would love to win....thanks Dawn!

LOVE V-8 And LOVE coupons !!!

pattymerry said...

Woo hoo! Thanks for all you do, Dawn. You make me smile.

Lee said...

I agree with you that this is a great product, especially for kids (like mine) who detest most veggies. I feel so much better having V-8 fusion to buy, so my kids are getting some extra nutrition...they like the acai berry best. It tastes like other mixed berry fruit juices.

So, yes, I'd like to win this giveaway, thanks.

Abby said...

Thanks for sharing the coupon site!! I'm a teacher and direct a youth softball program so I'm rarely home to eat, nevermind actually eat something healthy! I forgot about how good the juice is. =)

My son loves the Peach Mango V-8 fusion - it's the only one he's not allergic to. I'm so glad we were able to find a fruit juice that was 100% fruit juice that also gave him a serving of vegetables as well (since his diet is extremely limited, it is important for him to get as many nutrients as possible in a day). We love the stuff!!! =0)

Blessings,
Kelly

I love those tv comercials where the person is making a bad food decision and then gets bopped in the head! Coulda had a V8!

Anjie said...

I love V-8 Fusion, but always forget I have it in the fridge until it's too late! Maybe hauling a tote around would make me remember I have to drink some!
