I’m sort of in love.

Or maybe affectionately addicted.

To a couple of beverages.

But oh – these aren’t just ANY beverages.  They’re a couple of new drinks from V8 and oh my goodness, they are tasty.

I’ve been a fan of V8 drinks – especially the Fusion blends – for years now.  I love that when you mix fruit and vegetable juices, you get a big bottle of yum.  And because some days I didn’t always get a full serving of vegetables, especially, I liked that a glass of V8 could help make up the deficit.

New Drinks From V8

While at BlissDom, however, there were some lovely folks there with a sampling station of the new V8 V-Fusion Sparkling and V8 V-Fusion + Energy.  I was interested right away in the + Energy drink: natural energy from green tea, B vitamins (someday I will finally get around to posting about why B12 is amazing), 50 calories, no fat, no added sugar, and a full serving of fruits and veggies.  The Sparkling did make me pause for a second, as I’m not a huge fan of “sparkling” beverages.  But as I hadn’t met a V8 drink that I didn’t care for, I put on a brave face and decided to try it, as well.

Delicious.  Light.  Fruity.  And yes, sparkly.  Those are the words that popped into my mind as soon as I tasted the V8 V-Fusion Sparkling.  The + Energy was my second sample and I wasn’t disappointed.  It was refreshing, not overpowering like a lot of energy drinks are (you know, how they make your eyes squint with the first sip).  And they actually do give you some pep – BlissDom was a fun, fast-paced event and even with all the walking, I felt energized all day.

V8 V-Fusion + Energy

I liked both sets of drinks so much that I started looking for them in my local store almost as soon as I returned from the conference.  It took a week or so but then the + Energy drinks started showing up at Kroger and Walmart.  I picked up a 6-pack of the Pomegranate Blueberry (it also is available in Peach Mango) to see if they were as good as I remembered.  They were.  Now I drink one with my breakfast in the morning to give me a little energy to start the day, and I often have a second one in the afternoons.

I’ve had much less luck finding the Sparkling drinks in stores, and by “much less” I mean “none at all”.  I will definitely keep looking, though; the Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade (it also is available in Tangerine Raspberry and Black Cherry Pomegranate) could become my “summer” drink once I find them.  At only 60 calories per 8-ounce can, plus a combined full serving of fruits and veggies, it’s a healthy and refreshing choice.

I know that many of you would love a chance to get a burst of energy and to get your sparkle on, and one of you will be able to do that courtesy of V8!  Your prize pack will contain all of the following:

V8 Prize Pack

  • $25 Sephora Gift Card
  • Full-size bottle of philosophy raspberry sorbet shampoo/shower gel/bubble bath
  • Bottle of Essie nail polish
  • A Gaiam Yoga/Gym Bag
  • V8 Swag – including a green V8 to-go cup and a few of the new drinks

Now that you’ll have lots of natural energy from the + Energy drink, you’ll probably want to hit the gym with that cute Gaiam bag.  And then to help your outside sparkle as much as your inside after a can of Sparkling, you can take a bubble bath, give yourself a manicure, and then take yourself out for a little shopping spree.  It’s the perfect set!

Giveaway closed.

I received the package pictured above in order to facilitate my review.  No additional compensation was received and all opinions are, as always, 100% that of myself and my family.
