I am thrilled to be reviewing V8 V-Fusion Juice with all of you. Not only am I reviewing this great product but am also offering a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway for my readers!

Sometimes I feel like I’m pulling teeth to get my kids to eat all the fruits and vegetables they should everyday. What a pleasant surprise to find all the fruits AND vegetables packed inside V8 V-Fusion! Take a look at these flavors:  Pomegranate Blueberry, Strawberry Banana, Peach Mango, Tropical Mango, Acai Mixed Berry. Each of them are packed with between 6 and 10 fruits and vegetables! How nice to see that there is no high fructose corn syrup or added sugars.

As my kids were rummaging through the fridge last week looking for a snack as they always do, their eyes lit up when I said, “Hey guys I want you to try this new juice.” You certainly don’t have to twist their arms to drink juice, especially a new juice. I waited for for their response and first was a big smile then they both asked for more. The juice was a huge hit with the boys and they had no clue how healthy the juice was for them! My husband and I enjoyed our juice with dinner and both agreed we would definitely buy this product.

  1. Our family hasn’t had a chance to try V8 V-fusion yet. I think my kids would like the Peach Mango. I’m excited to see if they’ll like it since it’s so hard to get them to eat their veggies. The Pomegranate Blueberry sounds really good to me!

  2. Kimberly

    Peach Mango is definitely the best. My husband and I are addicted to these drinks and have tried them all! We LOVE them!

  3. The boys in the house (husband and son) would prefer strawberry/ banana, but I’m excited about the new cranberry blackberry. Perhaps because it’s in my blood – my mother grew up down the road from a cranberry bog – I’ve always liked cranberries.

  4. kelly mcnichol

    After reading this review I went out and got the juice. I thought it was going to be another overly hyped commentary on a product that fell flat. I was wrong! I love love love the acai berry! First, we do not buy watered down juices at our house…so this was a flavor packed and healthy benefits surprise. Lovin the juice people!

  5. Karla

    oh yummy! i love this post..the best would have to be the Pomegranate Blueberry. even though, all of its wonderful the Pomegranate Blueberry tops it off with a bang!

  6. Rorie

    My youngest is notorious for refusing veggies in any form, so I bought some of the V8 Fusion juice for him. I think the kind we have is the pomegranate blueberry. Mmm.

  7. Lorilee Peterson

    I would love to try the Strawberry Banana. Thanks for the link to the coupon. Can’t wait to try it!

  8. I LOVE V8 Fusion! I also love plain old V8. I was happily surprised to find that my 16 mo old daughter also likes V8 Fusion, the Peach Mango flavor. Pomegranate Blueberry comes in close 2nd.

  9. Melissa

    Pomegranate Blueberry WAS my favorite, but then I tried the Acai Mixed Berry and fell in love with the amazing flavor πŸ™‚

  10. Debbie

    I just tried the strawberry banana and I love it! I love that you get a hint of tomato and then the sweetness of the fruit.
    I also posted this contest on my blog at http://www.mccluskeytimes.blogspot.com

    BTW I made the rainbow cup cakes you posted a while back for my sons birthday and they were delicious!
    Thanks and keep the recipes coming!

  11. Amy

    We love the Peach Mango. My daughter loves it so much I call her a juice junkie. The V8 Fusion is the only juice she will drink! It’s the best!

  12. Darla

    My kids love the Peach Mango so much I usually buy about 4 bottles at a time. We just tried the Cranberry Blackberry last night and they drank the entire bottle! It is a hit!

  13. My family loves V-8 Fusion. Our favorite is Pomegranete Blueberry. I really like that there are no artifical ingredients or preservatives added. Only the best for my family…especially my 3 year old grandson!!

  14. Suzanne Campbell

    My favorite is the strawberry / banana its even better frozen in an ice tray and served with a spoon!

  15. Nancy

    I actually haven’t found a flavor I don’t like:) If I had to pick just one I would probably go with the Strawberry Banana.

  16. Terry Rond

    I love them all. Especially the pomegranate with blueberry. I have immune issues so need all the fruits and veggies I can drink or eat. terry

  17. Pomegranate Blueberry would make a tasty and healthy Cosmopolitan. Actually, many of the flavors “shaken not stirred” with some vodka would be a krazy good treat. Easy sell for a girls night in. A healthy cocktail.

    V8 V-Fusion Juice is Gluten Free!!!

  18. Megan

    Tropical! I think that’s the name of it. The orangish red one. LOVE it! Whenever they are on sale I stock up.

  19. My husband LOVES the strawberry banana. I bought a bottle for myself and only got half a cup of it because he drank the whole bottle in 2 days!

  20. Carol

    Strawberry-Banana is my daughter’s favorite, which is more important than my favorite, because I will also eat MY veggies.

  21. Megan

    My favorite is the tropical orange, but they don’t make it in light, so we tend to get my boyfriend’s favorite which is the peach mango.

  22. Kristy

    My 20 month old loves this juice! I love the fruit and veggie combo! Too many times I feel he comes upo short in the veggie department and this really helps out! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  23. Elizabeth

    I haven’t tried V-Fusion yet, but if it is anything like the regular V-8, I will be in love with Peach Mango!

  24. Julie

    I love the pomegranate blueberry- can hardly tell there’s a veggie in there! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  25. mmmmm peach mango sounds yummy my husband and I love juice and I’m always looking for ones without “empty calories”. I’m going to run out and buy some asap.

  26. We just recently tried the cranberry blackberry – it was the first time we’ve tried V-8 fusion & I didn’t even realize it was a new flavor. My son LOVES it.

  27. Ashley

    I have not tried this juice yet, but think I’ll pick some of the Pomegranate Blueberry up from the store this week. Sounds great, I’m sold!

  28. I have only tried the Peach Mango, but would love to try the Acaiberry one. I like the Peach Mango with pinapple juice, and Coconut rum, and splash of lemon. Makes a great mixed drink. Looking forward to having one for Superbowl soon! Go Saints! πŸ™‚

  29. Emily Hansen

    Is there one that’s better then the other? I love ALL of them. I will have to go with the Strawberry Banana. Try using it in the blender with some lowfat yogurt. It is YUMMY!

  30. Erica

    Pomegranate Blueberry is by far the best, but in my opinion, the drink needs to be watered down. Its much too strong.

  31. I’m excited to try cranberry blackberry. These are two of my favorite flavors and I can’t wait to see what they taste like when paired up!

  32. Sheila M. Toby

    I drink the light, due to weight issues. I must tell you I am a 52 year old woman who does not eat like I should. So I thought I would give it a try, figuring that way I would at least get some vitamins and fruit in me. Now I must say—I am PICKY! V-8 fusion was won over my taste buds!!!!! I love it and I am drinking it on a daily basis. So is everyone in the household. I love the Strawberry Banana. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to get the veggies and fruit I need!

  33. Brenden

    I haven’t tried it yet, but I want to try Strawberry Banana… it’ll be the perfect complement to a morning breakfast!

  34. I will soon be undergoing chemotherapy and have been told even though I will loose my appetitie that I must keep eating…what better way to do it? V-8 Fusion! I love strawberry banana and plain ole V-8 so now I’m going to love them all.

  35. Deb Anderson

    Since I already love cranberry, anything that mixes cranberry with another flavor is something I automatically want to try. Cranberry Blackberry sounds delicious!!

  36. Brittany Johnson

    I have actually never tried A V8 Fusion before, but the cranberry/blackberry looks great! I’m excited to try it! It looks very refreshing! πŸ™‚

  37. Andrea

    I have been reluctant to try anything V-8 (I can be as picky as a 4 year old when it comes to veggies), but I have been very curious about the V-8 fusion. I’ll probably start with something safe, like the Strawberry Banana…however, the Cranberry Blackberry sounds so yummy!

  38. Stephanie

    LOVE this juice and my kids love it too! So happy that there are coupons to use along with the sale this week!!

  39. Kim

    My kids love the Pomegranite Blueberry and the light Strawberry Banana. It is a delicious way to get some more fruit and vegie vitamins in their growing bodies!

    Love your blog by the way!

  40. Christina Madison

    My kids LOVE the V8 Fusion juices and since they don’t eat veggies I don’t mind! I guess their favorite is the tropical orange flavor. But they are all great!

  41. Rolyndia

    I have not found one that I don’t like to drink. Depending on my mood at the time is what I grab. They are all really good.

  42. Julia

    I love the Stawberry Banana flavor! I’ve been drinking the V8 fruit juices since they came out (ok, and I used to drink the veggie V8 when I was a kid like there was nothing more delicious!) and have always had a soft spot for the Strawberry Banana flavor. I don’t drink it as often as I could, but I look on it as my comfort juice when I’m ill or homesick.

  43. Sheila Weisel

    I love V8 Fusion. I drink it all the time. I love all the flavors and except for being allergic to strawberry and not being able to drink the strawberry banana, I have tried them all.
    Sheila

  44. Tana Nachampassack

    My kids are crazy about the V8 fusion. We tried the Strawberry/Banana last week. They like freezing it on popsickle sticks in the summer. Their favorite is jello. So I used the gelatin packs and made jello from the V-Fusion Cranberry Blackberry juice. I’m thinking about putting frozen fruit in it next time. Try it! They will want it forever. πŸ™‚

  45. Gina

    I haven’t tried it yet but I love any flavor with pomegranite juice, so I am anxious to try the blueberry pomogranite mix.

  46. raygon

    This juice is so yummy, and sneaky. Who knew it was packed with so much good stuff? We are fans of the strawberry banana.
    Thanks for the chance!

  47. Joy

    It is a toss-up between Pomegranite Blueberry and Peach Mango… I love them both. Strawberry banana is also delicious. I haven’t tried the Acai Mixed Berry but now that I know it exists, I think I will head to the store πŸ™‚

  48. Dianne

    they all sound great! Going grocery shopping tonite, and picking up the pomegranate / Blueberry!! Can’t wait to try it!

  49. Jen in CO

    Peach Mango…I mix it with a bit of ice, none fat yogurt and give it a whirl in the blender, yummy and healthy!

  50. Lenae Trent

    I would like to try them all! The pomegranate/blueberry sounds wonderful as does the peach mango. MMMMM the tropical sounds great too. Maybe I will have to try them all at once. Thanks.

  51. Vickie Palmer

    Tropical Mango is my fave. Reminds me of growing up in Puerto Rico and our backyard mango tree. Oh so mess y and good!

  52. I LOVE the Peach Mango “Light” version. I’m not one who likes to drink their calories, but with only 50 per serving, I indulge with this juice, it’s nice to get the veggie bonus as well!

  53. Joann Jacquin

    Just saw these in the store the other day. Would love to try the Passion Fruit Tangerine!! Sounds delicious!!

  54. Tracy Simons

    V8 VFusion is awesome! Our daughter loves her “purple juice” the pom blueberry! Can’t wait to try the Cranberry!

  55. Betty Stevens

    I’d like to try Strawberry Banana. V8 used to have another fruit drink that was Strawberry Banana but I haven’t seen it for a while

  56. Robyn

    I haven’t tried it yet…definently have been looking at it in the store but I needed someone else to tell me it tasted good! So thank you!

  57. Sharon Rooney

    I have not tried V8-Fusion but I think I would like to try the Cranberry Blackberry flavor, it sounds yummy.

  58. julie Doddridge

    I would love to try pomegrante blueberry. I have tried a few and liked them all just not sure which one it was.

  59. I have never tried it… but I think I should because I’m one of those crazy adults who doesn’t eat many fruits or vegetables!! I think the pomegranate blueberry sounds delish!!

  60. Whitney

    This is so sad but I have never tried the V8 mixes, but after reading about them, I’m definitely going out to buy some. Anything with pomegranate is very tempting πŸ™‚

  61. Kara

    I haven’t tried these yet, but they sound great, especially the Peach Mango. I like that it comes in both a regular and a light version!

  62. Nicole

    We love V8 fusion in our house!! The kids love to drink it straight, or mix it with some frozen fruit to make a smoothie. The best part is that they don’t even realize that there are veggie’s in it.

  63. aimee

    I would love to try the Pomegranate Blueberry or Peach Mango. May need to pick me up some at the store today.
    Thanks!!!

  64. natalie e

    I would love to try the Acai berry one! I think it sounds delish! Or maybe the Pomegranate…. I can’t decide!

  65. Hey Jen, it’s Becky McCleve (Traeger now) from High School… my sister told me about your blog… LOVE IT! and I LOVE V8 Fusion juice for my kiddo too! He refuses any and all vegetables and will only eat an apple (every once in a while) He really likes the Pomegranate Blueberry flavor and he has no idea how many vegetables are packed in there! ha ha

  66. Stehanie Curtis

    We really don’t have a favorite fusion. We have found that we like them all! We have also used them to make smoothies, adding a little milk and yogurt. YUM!!!

  67. krk436

    I just tried Strawberry Banana yesterday!! I liked it and would probably purchase again. I thought the drink was ok but I think I most want to try the pom-blueberry because blueberries are my favorite!

  68. kris

    We have like them all – but I think the boys love the Pomegranute the best – something about that blue! Thanks for the chance

  69. kathy steadman

    I’d try the Pomegranate Blueberry. Not only does Pomegranate Blueberry sound totally delicious but both considered a super food loaded w/nutrition! Yum.

  70. Love the blueberry pom one and mango. Great giveaway, I drink VB vegetable often. Much too very often as salty as it is. And the low sodium stuff just doesn’t cut it.

  71. Kathy Rambousek

    I’d never tried this before – guess I’d been afraid of the taste. However the strawberry banana flavor sounds kind of yummy

  72. Larisa

    My boys LOVE LOVE LOVE the Tropical Mango! I’ll never tell them they are drinking veggies ;-)! I have liked all the flavors that we have tried!

  73. I’ve never tried V-8 V-Fusion, mostly because I thought it did indeed have corn syrup. Thanks to your post, I now know differently. I’ll have to check it out! I’ll probably try the Pomegranite Blueberry or Peach Mango first.

  74. I retweeted your tweet for this @MommyImHungry (I can’t get a direct link for a retweet)

    I’ve tried the pomegranate blueberry and it is amazing, but I’d love to try the Acai Mixed Berry, it sounds wonderful!

  76. I haven’t tried it yet, but Pomegranate Blueberry and Strawberry Banana both sound like something that me and picky little eater would love! He never turns down a cup of good juice!

  77. Lesa S

    Requested FB and commented on mine (Lesa Steele). Forgot to mention I grew up in Irvine…saw the Newport site.

  78. Lesa S

    Thank you for the generous giveaway. Pomegranite Blueberry. They all sound yummy. Healty too? Cmon? Perfect for my immune system!

  79. becky s

    I have seen V8 Fusion in the stores but have not tried it. With the coupon offered, I will give it a try. Thanks!

  80. I have not yet tried V8 fusion. I have had V8 Splash, which I loved! You cant go wrong with V8. I think the flavor I am most excited to try is Peach Mango…I love Peaches! Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day so that I have a place to look when I am bored, hungry, or need a good recipe for a party.

    Sincerely,
    Lacey Port

  81. Winston Liao

    Hey Jenny,

    I have tried all the varieties of V-8 Fusion, though nothing best satisfy my stomach than the original V-8 Vegetable Juice. Something about that sweet, tangy, yet hint of saltiness helps quench my hunger at odd times of the day.


    Winston

  82. I’ve never tried any fusions because I never liked straight V8. But I’m making it an official 2010 resolution to try it! and I’d love to try all of them!

  83. Suzanne

    We love the pomegranate blueberry! My kids think it tastes great, and loved the awesome color! We already buy this product, and will love the coupon!

  84. Emily

    It has been a long time since I have tried a v8 juice. But I know that my mom made me a smoothie recently with some v8 Fusion and it was REALLy good!

  85. Sarah McCoy

    Mi kids (4 and 2) LOVE V-Fusion and it makes me feel better knowing that they are getting some veggies and not just fruit. They love the Aqui Berry one…yum.

  86. Olivia VanCott

    I believe this would be perfect for my husband, he could use more nutrients in the gallons of juice he drinks πŸ™‚ I would love to try the Tropical Mango.

  87. Casey

    I would love to try all of them, but if I had to pick one it would be strawberry banana. I love that flavor combination.

  88. Katie

    I have not tried them yet…but the first one I would like to try is Peach Mango! Sounds great. I love anything with Mango! I also didn’t know that they make the drinks without HFCS. Awesome!! πŸ™‚

  89. Lori

    These all sound so good. I printed out a coupon to try the Pommagranate Blueberry, sounds yummy.. but they all do.

  90. What a fun giveaway. I am loving the acaiberry V8 fusion these days. We have actually been having quite a bit lately and I will be checking out the coupon. Thank you so much. I am doing my first giveaway if you have a second to participate. You blew me away with all the veggies in your chicken noodle soup. I will have to add the squash and what not next time. Yum!

  91. Amy

    We haven’t ever tried these juices, but the pomegranate/blueberry is the one that sounds the best to me–even though I’d love to try the others, too!

  92. Kimberly

    I have tried V8 fusion and I do like it. I didn’t realize it didn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or added sugar. That makes me want to drink it more often.

  93. I haven’t tried the V-8 Fusions, but the Strawberry Banana sounds yummy. I like the idea of getting fruits and veggies into my kids in a healthy drink.

  94. Kim in Minnesota

    My son loves strawberry-banana V8 Fusion! He set a goal of getting more vegetables, and this juice is one of our new tactics to reach the goal. Love it!

  95. We have tried the Blueberry Pomegranate and Peach Mango. The Peach Mango was gone in less than a day. My kids absolutely loved it and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed either. Great stuff and great giveaway.

  96. Denise

    My kids absolutely love the Pom Blueberry! I’m thrilled that
    they are getting fruits and veggies without knowing it. I have
    even used it to make muffins for breakfast/snacks.

  97. Nachelle

    I want to try the Acai Mixed Berry, I have tried other flavors before and love them, but don’t know names off the top of my head

  98. Brooke

    I think the Pomegranate Blueberry sounds the best! I am a sucker for Pomegranate in any form πŸ™‚ YUM! THANKS!

  99. christy vance

    I think they all sound Delish!! I gotta go with the Pmegranate Blueberry…thats top on my list to try!!

  100. Jolynn Elliott

    My favorite used to be a strawberry Kiwi. But it looks like they dont make this anymore.So I will probably be trying the peach mango. That sounds really good too.

  101. Allison

    This stuff IS so good that you do forget that it has good things in it! My kids love it too (although buying juice is a special treat since it’s so pricey!) I love the Peach and Tropical Mango! πŸ™‚ Yum-o! πŸ™‚

  102. Bev

    I have never tried it, but would love to try the Passionfruit Tangerine! Thanks for posting about this great giveaway!

  103. Lisa

    Promegranate Bluberry sounds the best!! The perfect blend of sweet and tart! I have not tried it but look forward to it.

  104. Stephanie

    I have never tried it but I’d love to try the Acai Berry Flavor! Thank you for the chance. I love your site adn I wish I knew how you stayed so tiny around all this yummy food! πŸ™‚ {Post your secrets!)

    ((hugs))

    Stephanie

  105. Tirsa

    I am excited to try strawberry banana. I too have a hard time getting all my fruits and veggies in and this would be a good way to supplement my nutrition. Thanks for the coupon!

  106. Rachel

    I haven’t tried the V8 V-Fusion Juice yet, but being pregnant, I’m sure it’s a wonderful way to get extra nutrients and vitamins! The Blueberry Pomegranate sounds the best!

  107. Kira

    I love the blueberry pomegranate flavor. I am pregnant and have been VERY sick – this is a great drink b/c it is all juices and NO sugar!! Love this drink!

  108. The acai mixed berry sounds great! I actually had no idea that V-8 was making these drinks. I like to drink the regular V-8 juice drinks….I am sure that these will be great! Yum…thanks!

  109. Kim F

    Our family absolutely loves the Pomegranate Blueberry. This is the only juice my kids ask for. I too appreciate it tasting good and it being healthy for you.

  110. I’ve never tried these…my entire family cringes when I buy regular V-8. :o) But I have been tempted…maybe I”ll go get the coupon and try it out. There are some yummy sounding flavor mixes.
