This Mom’s wish came true!!
I can still remember that commercial where they hit their forehead and said, “I could of had a V8”. Who remembers that?
I do a lot of reviews for Brody, my 3 year old son, or with him in mind. This review is no different. I knew that the V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers would be great for him to drink. But I didn’t know just how good until I received them in the mail and read more about them. Whenever I receive a box in the mail, Brody always wants to know if it’s for him. When this box came, he said, “Is that for me?”, and I said, “it sure is”. When he saw what it was, his first thought was he wanted a drink, and being a concerned parent my first reaction was to the words down at the bottom in white that says “NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP”. Now, that’s what I look for in drinks and in foods we eat. Next to that it says, “100% Vitamin C”. That’s a win win for my family right there! These Refreshers truly are a drink for the whole family to enjoy!!
I was sent two 46 fl. oz. V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers at no cost to try and write up a review on – Cranberry Grape and Peach Strawberry. The ingredients in these are marvelous, with water being the first ingredient and sugar being the fourth. As you all probably know, the first three ingredients are the most important to consider.
They also contain NO artificial sweeteners, and NO artificial flavors, colors or preservative. I don’t like preservatives in my foods! The downfall is they recommend you drink them in 14 days. Not sure if my little one can do that…guess I’ll have to help him. Brody loved the taste. A little sweet for me, but I will drink them. Regarding sugar – I prefer to drink the “real thing” oppose to drinking sweeteners. That could be a personal preference, but that’s what I’ve decided after reading about the two.
Getting kids to eat their veggies is another thing. I try, oh boy do I try. I succeed most of the time. Brody does like carrots, green beans and broccoli. Seeing that these drinks are made up of vegetable and fruit juice blends, and seeing what they DON’T have in them, is a sure thing I’m going to be purchasing them from now on. It’s so hard finding fruit drinks to serve to your children – that time as stopped for me. I found mine, really I have. I’m truly happy with these Refreshers.
More and more foods and drinks I see are leaving out high fructose corn syrup…which only means they are finally listening to us, right? I don’t know about you, but I’m finding I have to put more foods in the refrigerator because the yucky additives are being taken out, but that’s okay to me, I’ll just tell hubby we need a bigger frig.!!! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask!!
Be sure to pick you up a bottle or two of these yummy Refreshers. They come in 4 delicious flavors and are truly worth serving to your family. We’ve enjoyed them tremendously.
