I love this stuff. I drink the low-sodium version and it still tastes great.

Who here also drinks it?

The only kind I've tried is their Berry juice of something like that. It was pretty good.

I drink the fruit and vegetable mix every morning and after my workout every day. Try the light stuff, alot less sugar.

Yep, V8 Spicy for lunch on most days. Just had some today.

My breakfast every morning is a 12oz glass of V8 Fusion. The Acai berry flavor is the best so far, but I like them all.

As for the regular V8? Makes a decent base for a spicy Bloody Mary, but that's about it.

Yes, but you have to add salt and pepper

Another fan of the Spicy here, when I do have one.

Or with a shot of wild turkey!

Never tried one actually. Don't like the idea of drinking vegetables...

It's good stuff, but the regular version doesn't have any sugar added anyhow, and the light version just replaces juice with water. You could do that yourself and save some money.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:13:05 AM EDT
I like it, but even the low sodium version has too much salt to be very healthy.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:13:09 AM EDT
Love it. I just wish it didn't have so much salt in it.

I like the regular V8 and the Spicy Hot V8. They both taste great very cold.

I tried that V8 Fusion and almost vomited, it's so thick and cloyingly sweet. I'm gonna try that light one.

I make and can my own every summer.

it's very close to this recipe:
10 pounds tomatoes
3 jalapeno peppers
2 large onions, chopped
2 carrots, cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 cups chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Lemon Juice
Tabasco sauce to taste.

Cook all of this down, run it through a mill and cook a little longer then can.

YUMMY

Yes, I like the spicy hot

Looking at the back of my can, it states: 200mg Sodium.

It works for me!

That sounds REALLY good. I suppose you could substitute Cholula for the Tabasco...

I like it but rarely drink it. Never buy any for around the house.

The low sodium spicy version is better. I also like to shoot a squirt of ketchup in mine. Thickens it up and gives it a little "mouth feel."

Yupp....good stuff.

Yea the standard Fusion is pretty heavy. The light is much better.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:31:49 AM EDT
I'll drink it in a pinch if I don't have any fruits, veggies, or vitamins around.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:33:09 AM EDT
Love it!
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:34:16 AM EDT
I drink it after a workout.

Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:36:05 AM EDT
Only the spicy version with lemon juice and tabasco
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:37:15 AM EDT
Haven't had it in forever, but my college's cafeteria used to have V8 Spicy. That's good.

You want sugar after a workout... kills the cortisol...

In my opinion, the heaviness is a good thing, as I use it for a meal replacement. I guess if you're drinking it because you're thirsty, it might be different.

Low sodium V8, FTMFW.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:45:12 AM EDT
It's the only non-potatoe derived vegetable in my diet since I left mom's house.

Yes, I love V-8 juice.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:48:32 AM EDT
[Last Edit: 3/27/2009 9:51:56 AM EDT by AR15thur]
It's pretty Pavlovian I guess, but after some back-breaking work in the yard or whatever I want nothing but V-8.

I can down 2-3 cans worth when I get done working.

I love the stuff, the only thing that comes close is my aunt's homemade tomato juice.

ETA: Also, screw the low sodium stuff. I actually pour in some extra salt with my cold soup in a can.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 9:49:57 AM EDT
With some chopped potatoes, carrots, etc., in a bowl and heated up it would make for a great vegetable soup. Otherwise I don't care for it at all.

I have V8 running through my veins.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 10:40:01 AM EDT
It's been awhile but now and then I like it.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 11:18:46 AM EDT
I like it.

Use it to make chilie sometimes. ( instead of tomatoe sauce/paste )
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 11:20:09 AM EDT
Good stuff, been drinking it for years.

I use it in my vegetable beef stew, too.
