The V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers were supplied to me at no charge for review and I am being compensated for this article. My opinions have not be compromised as I have used V-8 products for years.
In fact, it’s been around my kitchen for all of my life. My mom cooked with it, my dad drank it, and I use it both ways. Now, instead of it just being a mix (delicious mix) of vegetables it also contains fruit and that makes it more appealing to my kids.
Because somehow the younger ones are pickier than the older ones were. I must be getting worn out.
Last week I got a box on the front porch. That’s always a big deal around here. There is usually a tussle over who gets to open the box — because even though it’s mine we all know that I am never going to get to open another thing addressed to me. I have children. In the box were two bottles of the new V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers. They are a 20-25% blend of fruit and vegetable juices, naturally sweetened (no high fructose corn syrup), no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
And you know, the drinks are full of immune support in the form of Vitamin C.
You’d think that the blends would be gross because of the mixture of fruit and vegetables but they are really fresh, light and delicious. They come in four flavors:
- Black Cherry Berry
- Cranberry Grape
- Tangerine Passionfruit
- Peach Strawberry
I had a busy week and put the bottles on the counter where I wouldn’t forget about them. In my house out of sight really does mean out of mind. Nick and Kyrie came home every day, looked at the bottles and asked (almost in unison), “Is it time to try the juice yet?”
First it was deadlines, then it was rainy days, and finally we had a relatively sunny day as long as I worked in the front parlor. It was the ultimate thrill for them — getting to drink the juice and getting to drink in the parlor.
They loved them. I feel sort of dumb saying it because I knew they would. If you’d like to add some nutrition to your kids’ diets then definitely try these. Not one of mine will turn the V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers blends down. Maybe you’ll find that you can get more nutrition into your kids easily, too.
The main problem now is that it is going to disappear really fast on a regular basis. It’s available everywhere.
