This weeks BOGO items at Publix included a new V8 drink that I’d not seen before. When I saw the “+ tea” on the label, I had to buy some – of course, it being half price didn’t hurt either.
These days everyone knows that tea is a great source of polyphenols and flavonoids that help soak up all those free radicals. It seems like tea (or tea extract) is being added to more products every day. This juice is a good way to sneak some veggies into my grandsons diet. Normally, I only buy 100% fruit juice for the boys and the V8 V- Fusion only contains 50% juice. It does contain quite a variety of fruits and veggies, such as sweet potatoes, purple carrots, yellow tomatoes, apples, pomegranates and more.
I tried the Raspberry Green Tea flavor for lunch and it was very tasty (nice color too), although a little sweeter than I would normally choose. So I’d say try it – especially as a healthy alternative to sodas for those non tea drinkers.
