A six pack of V8 V-Fusion Pomegranate Blueberry cost me less then four bucks, which is dirt cheap for an energy drink no matter how small the cans are. Plus, this is more of a caffeinated juice than your typical energy drink, so a low price is likely to turn heads more efficiently than its visuals. Its biggest issue here is the small retail space it has to work with, as it has large ambitions of doing a lot on its can, justified by the need to explain its idiosyncrasies. But there is simply too much paint on this tiny canvas, and things resultantly blur with confusion.
You can certainly taste pomegranate right out of the gate, a fruit who you slowly begin to notice is built upon a foundation of blueberry after a few easy sips. Carbonation's nonattendance intensifies the quality of the smoothness, and to the authenticity that the berries naturally crave when being in such a healthy product. But with the latter, uh, compliment, comes again the unfortunate fate of unjust sweetening, something that has just previously been one of the many small nails in the former variety's coffin. Here it is not necessarily as bad, as the fruits do not seem to demand it nearly as strongly, and because they both enjoy a bit of tartness that keeps you distracted at least for part of the time. Overall, V8 V-Fusion Pomegranate Blueberry is better than the one before it, albeit not by much.
Wow, the can advertises this as an excellent source of some B vitamins? I am sure that is why people drink these whatsits called energy drinks. Eighty milligrams of caffeine appear in good form, though this isn't gonna get you kids that so called kick you young'ins are so hopped up over. All in all, V8 V-Fusion Pomegranate Blueberry could be defined as this market's vision of alternate energy. Either that or poorly conceived, but I am sure the company prefers the former.
