V8 V-Fusion Sparkling Review & Giveaway

I like juice…

…I especially like juice that has vegetables in it.

I also enjoy soda, but I hardly EVER drink it because I know it’s just not good for me. But, there’s something just so refreshing to have something sparkling and tingly touch your tongue. ๐Ÿ˜€

So, here’s the compromise!

V8 V-Fusion has come out with a new Sparkling juice that has a full serving of fruits and veggies in every serving (1/4 cup of veggies and 1/4 cup of fruit). What? What?!? Genius.

The flavors are:

  • Black Cherry Pomegranate (the one shown here)
  • Strawberry Lemonade
  • Tangerine Raspberry

They are all just 60 calories for an 8-ounce can! They do have anywhere from 11-13 grams of sugar, but that is purely from the fruit. There’s no added sugar,ย artificialย colors or flavors or preservatives. My kind of drink.

It’s seriously good. I first tried it when I was at BlissDom.

Eee….it was practically the only thing I wanted to drink while I was there, besides water. And boy, was it tasty! I slurped up the entire can in minutes. Mmm!

I can have another? ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Anyway. I’m so excited to finally be able to get some of this V8 V-Fusion Sparkling in my local grocery store. It’s supposed to be coming out at the beginning of May! Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

I may just have to bring a couple of cans to the hospital when I go toย deliver! Maybe even get on the nurse’s good sides and share! ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’ll work, right?

To celebrate the release of V8 V-Fusion Sparkling, I’m hosting an awesome giveaway!

  1. let us know when these are available in Cola! looks yummy but I’d also really like to see the ingredients list ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. This is an amazing giveaway!!! I LOVELOVELOVE sparkling juice but I’ve only ever found welches grape!! And I love V8 fusion drinks!! And holy what what?! Sephora loot?! I’m in heaven. If I don’t win this, I’ll cry. Tears of sadness. Pure sadness. ๐Ÿ˜‰ oh wait :'((

  3. ooh, this is sooo the type of drink that i have been loving lately! i so hope i can win so i can try these! + i love your nails – i’ll have to look up that color so i can try it in the future. thanks for the awesome giveaway, caroline!

  4. Love sparkling juice and for the flavor you demonstrate be pomegranate with some black cherry what better combination is there? My family thinks that I am obsessed with pomegranate.

  5. Amazing food photography yet again. I’m salivating. Wonder if the V8 folks ever thought about changing the branding to a more sustainable name like V4 or electric hybrid? Their product is already there.

  6. This looks awesome and could be a treat for my son as he likes bubbly drinks but I won’t give him soda!

  7. As a former labor & delivery nurse, I can tell you that it never hurts to bribe the nurse ๐Ÿ˜‰ After all, she does control the pain medication and makes that call for an epidural if desired!

  8. Thanks for all your great food ideas, proof that healthy need not be yucky! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait for the V8 results, I’m a fan of theirs too.

  9. What an awesome giveaway! Thanks for telling us what nail polish you were wearing (I was wondering the whole time I was looking at the pictures)!!!

  10. Sounds yummy! I love the little giveaway you have put together so much fun! I just became a facebook fan and I love your background picture with the strawberry doughnuts!

  11. I am a facebook FAN!! LOVE the blog (made the spinach almond chicken last night and my kids went ga-ga. I thought my husband had paid them to tell me what a wonderful cook I was–but no! It was just that delicious!)

  12. Wow, that actually looks *really* good, and I say this as a not-much-of-a-fan of V8’s juices. Cute cocktail, with the berries. ๐Ÿ™‚

    * Also a fan on FB. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. This an awesome giveaway!! All the items are great… sure hope to win this one. thanks you for the chance.

  14. That sounds so good- I’ve been looking for a healthy, sweet, bubbly drink without artificial sweeteners!

  15. I bought some of that yesterday at the store and I LOVE it already! I can’t wait to try the other flavors.

  16. ever since i was a kid, i hated v8, but now that company has made different kind of flavors and maybe my taste bud have changed!

  17. bringing treats to nursing staff is DEFINITELY a plus, especially if it is healthy!

    I love the bubbles in soda, and drink soda water all the time… I also love juice with vegetables, so I cannot wait to get my hands on this!

  18. Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your blog! I made your chocolate cake for two the other night for my fiance & I – it was just perfect! You are the cutest pregnant lady I’ve ever seen and I cant wait to find out whether your new addition is a little boy or girl.

  19. I ama big V-8 fan and I picked one each of the strawberry/banana and black cherry. They are amazing! I like to put it in the freezer to get the slushy effect.

  20. Oh, this looks so delicious! Can’t wait to try it but I bet it will be a good while before it’s available here in the Kanawha Valley. We’re almost always the last to get anything good. I’m still waiting for Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s to come here so we have to drive long distances to shop at one. No good shopping here at all. Darn it!!!

  21. “Anything you want” LOL Thanks so much for the giveaway. I’m going to have to try V8 V-Fusion sparkling. I drink too much soda because I like the bubblies.

  22. What a cute little surprise package. I would love to take a relaxing raspberry sorbet bubble bath after my upcoming stressful finals week! Hoping for a win!! My fingers are crossed.

  23. I am obsessed with healthy drinks and Essie nail polish! Thank you for the heads up on this great fruit drink coming to stores soon. I can not wait to try it, meanwhile I am going to get a manicure with Jamaica me Crazy as my nail color!

  24. Love your blog ~ haven’t tried this v8 flavor… but it sounds deliciously refreshing. keep up the great blogging!

  25. I have had a version of the V8 that I love, but it only has one type, so I am excited to try the V8!

  26. Yay! So excited to try these drinks. I like how you made it fancy in the martini glass with the berries ๐Ÿ™‚ Awesome giveaway to! Fan on FB already ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. What an awesome give away. I am going to have to check our local store for the juice. Looks totally like a drink we would like.

    Follow on FB.

  28. Just a little note to tell you that I enjoy your facebook posts greatly – and good luck to you on your pending delivery! How exciting! <3

  29. I would love to try the new sparkling V8! I like to have something fizzy, but I don’t like soda – way too sweet. I always drink fruit flavored sparkling water, but this looks like a great alternative! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

  30. I purchased all three varieties at a Publix in Atlanta but can’t find them in my town. The sparkling version is not even on the V8 website for me to check out store locations where it can be purchased. Can’t wait until it is more widely available! My entire family LOVES this beverage!!!!

  31. I am glad I found your blog. So beautiful and good to see all the healthy sweets for my sweet tooth ๐Ÿ™‚
