Back in the day when I was a young pup, my dad would always drink this stuff. I never understood it because it basically tasted like tomatoes. I’ve always associated V8 as an “old peoples” drink. Well now that I’m older and way fatter, I think this drink has sorta grown on me.
It’s kinda like beer or pozole(Messican soup). No one I know, when they first take a swig of beer immediately falls in love with the taste and no one I know when they first take a bite out of the beef tripe (cow stomach) loves it. Basically its something you learn to appreciate. Well now that I am on my 2nd day of drinking V8 (I had one on my way home yesterday), I’m actually starting to like it too. It’s actually way better than the Naked Juice that we get at work for free since it has less calories.
The 5.5oz can only has 30 calories, 7g of carbs and 1g of protein. It’s the perfect drink to keep me satisfied until I get some real food.
The taste, well I do love tomato stuff such as gazpacho, salsa, pico de gallo, ceviche and all that jazz. So the V8 is just right up my alley…well now it is.
Dang, I think I’m getting old and turning into my dad….uh oh…next thing you know I’ll be wearing golf shirts everyday….
