V-Fusion Picnic at the Beach!

I've written about V8 V-Fusion before. The first time I saw it at Campbell's HQ last year, I turned up my nose and said something like, "Ew, vegetables do NOT belong in juice! Gross!" However, my fellow bloggers insisted the juice didn't taste like vegetables and urged me to try it. I'm so glad I did! I love this stuff! It's delicious which is reason enough to like it, but it's also got a full serving of fruit AND a full serving of vegetables in every 8 oz. glass!

My four-year-old, Brooklyn's food groups consist of chocolate milk, macaroni & cheese, peanut butter, and candy. She's my sixth. I gave up long ago. What can I say? I'm a bad mom. Anyway, I love that I can give Brooklyn a glass of V-Fusion and rest assured that she's getting at least two servings of fruits and vegetables in a juice that she likes to drink. I know, I know, we're supposed to have 4000-some servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily, but let's be realistic here. How many of us really do get the recommended amount? This is an easy and delicious way to sneak in two servings daily.

And V8 V-Fusion is 100% juice with no added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors or flavors. You can definitely feel good about serving this to your family! And now, V-Fusion is available in 6-packs of 8 oz. cans which are perfect for sticking in lunch boxes or taking along to the park, zoo, or a picnic at the beach.

Want to give V-Fusion a try? You can print a coupon for $1 off HERE!



Leave me a comment here to win this awesome beach tote/cooler filled with goodies from V8 including beach towels, two 6-packs of V-Fusion and The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeovers cookbook which gives great tips to make classic meals a little healthier for your families. "Like" V-Fusion on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment letting me know for another chance to win. Open to residents of the U.S. No purchase necessary to win. I'll choose a random winner on Friday, May 7.


I was given a beach tote with V-8 to try out and review, but was not monetarily compensated for my review. As always, my opinions are my own and are always honest.

I love V8 Fusion. I'm always looking for fruit juice without the high fructose corn syrup and it's just an added bonus that there's also vegetable juice in there.

If you like it, I'm sure my family will, too! We're all about avoiding foods/drinks w/high fructose corn syrup.

Lesan said...

I added V8 VFusion to my Like list!

Kimberly said...

Oh wow! This is exactly what I need! My 5 y/o gets 20 times more fruit than he needs a day and almost no veggies. As for me? Well, like mother like son!! This would be an answer to our dietary prayers! Keep up the great work. And, don't worry, I'm sure Brooklyn will grow up and learn to love the other food groups. I know my oldest (17)is doing much better in this department!

Kimberly said...

Oh, i now "like" V-Fusion on fb!

Missi said...

Oh my I so need to win this.....I'd love to try V8 Fusion. My son sure could benefit from getting some veggies & fruit sneaked into his diet. He dislikes both. We make a yearly trip to the beach & spend most of our summer in the pool so we sure could get plenty of use out of the beach towels/tote also. My hubby is watching what he eats so the cookbook would be great also.
Thanks, Missi

I am a sad example for my girls when it comes to eating veggies, so this might be a step in the right direction for me!

Yeah, I don't get my kid to eat his 4,000 calorie recommended amount of fruits and veggies either. This would be an awesome prize to win!

I was gifted a public pool pass for this summer (not a public pool mom) so this would make the pool a much more tolerable place to go!

Thank you for offering it!
