I often drank the V8 Splash variety because I'm all about getting a full serving of vegetables without actually eating vegetables. Then I read the label & saw that the reason it was palatable is all of the corn syrup. If I put enough sugar on beets, celery, carrots, lettuce, parsley, watercress, spinach & tomatoes, I'd probably like them too.
I just thought I would commend you on the V8 V Fusion commercials. The V8 V Fusion (I like how it has a middle initial, so pompous. No I can't wait until the end of the sentence to add parenthesis). Anyways, the V8 V Fusion has vegetable juice & is sweetened with 100% fruit juice, but the genius is really in the advertising.
I really love the way the woman hits the man when he says he doesn't like V8 & then gives him the new V8 half fruit/half vegetable juice. I really admire the fact that you've based an entire advertising campaign around the fact that your original product sucks & people have to be forced to drink it or even entertain the thought of trying a new V8 product. In fact, they have to be hit on their heads to change their mind. Especially considering the fact that the vegetable V8 has been around for 60-70 years. Yes, I always knew it was gross. You always knew it was gross. The spicy V8 was gross, the original V8 was gross. I wouldn't wish lemon V8 on my worst enemy. I just give you props for finally admitting it. Hopefully, the new V8 that doesn't taste like V8 will help prevent scurvy in college students & Sarakastics alike.
