V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers Review | Optimistic Mommy

My entire family is all juice drinkers.  We love just about every juice – orange, cranberry (well, that’s mainly me), apple juice, etc.  The problem with most juices out on the market?  They’re just entirely full of sugar and don’t have any added benefits to them.  Luckily, the new V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers has changed the game for this household!

With 100% vitamin C and no high fructose corn syrup, these juice cocktails are great for your family.  And they give your family a full serving of not only fruit, but vegetables!  If you have children that don’t like to eat their veggies (luckily my daughter loves hers), then this is a great way to sneak their vegetables in! If you’re watching calories, like we’re trying to, I’ve got great news for you – all of their flavors, for an 8 ounce glass, is only 100 calories!  You really can’t beat that!

The first flavor we tried was the V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Cranberry Grape.  I love cranberry apple juice… but I’m even more in love with this cranberry grape!  It’s nice and sweet and has such great flavor!  I enjoy a nice, cold glass with my lunch now.  We’ve already had to go out and buy a new bottle after two days!  :-)

The second flavor we tried is the V8 V-Fusion Refreshers Black Cherry Berry.  I have to admit, I was a little nervous about this one.  I’m usually not a fan of black cherries.  But I’m glad I tried this one and didn’t just take my husband’s word for it.  Why?  Because I actually think I like this one more than the Cranberry Grape!  You get a nice flavor of the black cherry but it’s not overly powerful like some juices are.  And the taste of the berries is great!

They have two other flavors, that I cannot wait to try out; Tangerine Passionfruit and Peach Strawberry.  I definitely cannot wait for the Peach Strawberry – those are two of my favorite fruits and I’m sure they taste amazing paired together!

You can find V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers in the juice aisle, right along with the other V8 products, at your grocery and mass merchandise stores nationwide.  You can follow V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers on their website and Facebook!


  1. Strangely enough I just suggested the V8 Fusion to a friend whose husband does not eat enough veggies! Yes, I have tried it and LOVE it.

  2. I will definitely have to give these a try. My little guy isn’t big on veggies or fruits, so I always have him drink V* fruit fuzion. I love that we now have new flavors to try and they are HEALTHY!!

  3. My Granddaughter loves the V8 V Fusion Refreshers. I haven’t tried them yet because I can’t do a lot of sugar. One day I am sure I will get to try. They look so good when my granddaughter is drinking them.

  4. Sounds very yummy indeed! It really could quench thirst as I imagine it. Great review!

  5. I have not seen these. I do love the V8 juice combos. so good and it helps give you those vitamins from fruit and veggies. I like that these have no corn syrup. My biggest complaint with store juice, too much sugar, from of course corn syrup. Great that they took it out.

  6. I will have to try the cranberry grape. I like anything with cranberries. V8-vfusions sounds much healthier than regular juice so I would like my grandson to try some. He is a little picky about eating veggies. But I would like him to get more veggies this would help with that..

  7. I’m a big fan of the V8 juices! I can’t wait to try the refreshers! I love the new combination of flavors and NO high fructose corn syrup!

  8. My kids loved the V-8 fusions when they were little. I like the sound of the Black Cherry Berry

  9. Wow! These look amazing!

  10. We tried these in the store and fell in love. All the kids loved them. And I love that there is no high fructous corn syrup.

  11. We love refreshers V8. They are so good and I feel they are good for the kids to drink.

  12. My girls absolutely LOVE V-8. There’s no way I’d touch anything that healthy when I was a kid lol.

  13. I’ll be on the lookout for these for sure. They both sound amazing! And good for you too! I love cherry when it tastes like the real fruit and not the fake candy flavor!

  14. I am not a huge fan of V8 (but do love V8 Splash) but Hubby and my children do love it! It is a great way to get veggies. I will have to try the new flavors.

  15. That is such a reasonable amount of calories for a big glassful. You just made me realize that I have a bottle of that sitting on a shelf and had forgotten about it. I don’t remember the flavor though, so I guess it will be a surprise when I go find it tomorrow!

  16. I don’t like V8 original but I love their splash and now their fusion refreshers sound just as nice. Might have to check this out.

  17. I really like these because they contain the recommended amount of daily vitamins and minerals. Both of my boys are big juice drinkers and I only like to buy healthy and all natural juices for them.

  18. These look delicious. 100 calories for 8 ounces is not bad and I like that there is no high fructose corn syrup. I will have to give these a try. Lots of interesting flavors too.

  19. to me the biggest concern would be added sugars, but in the end some veggies/fruits is better than none, right?

  20. Oh these sound so yummy. My 6yr does not eat vegetables but loves juice so knowing he is getting vegetables at the same time is a win win for me! I will be looking for this. Thanks!!

  21. The Black Cherry sounds great! Our whole family could stand to eat more veggies. :-)

  22. I love that there is no high fructose corn syrup!

  23. I have not tried these before. I have tried V8 but never their fruit juice drinks. My daughter loves juice so I will definitely have to pick some up.

  24. Ohhh I’ve been dying to thy this one.. I see it all over the internet and it’s not in my store yet… the Black Cherry soooo is screaming my name.. Can’t wait to try it… thanks for sharing

  25. My kids love juice! Because of the sugar, I have them eat whole fruits most of the time but they get juice on Saturdays, so they think Saturdays are the best day of the week. lol These look great!

  26. I have tried all of them except the Cranberry-Grape. I love the Black Cherry Berry (ended up buying a flat of the the 12 oz so i’d be able to take them with me on the way to work). The others are good, but i’m a bit disappointed in the Peach Strawberry, you can taste the peach with just hint of strawberry (I was hoping it would be the other way around)
