I tried the fruit/vege Fusion recently and was less than impressed. In fact, it was downright disgusting.

Damn. I could have had a V-8 tonight!

I love'em. Thanks for reminding me, Bart.


I got nothing.

No, it's far from the most disgusting.
That said, I wouldn't drink it by choice.

It's better when you add vodka.

V-8 is only good if it's REALLY cold. Consumed at room temperature, it's a big glass of tomato-flavored vomit.

I love V8 spicy... thou it does need a little more Tabasco sauce added to give it some proper spice.

It's great stuff. Best served in a big glass with lots of ice. I drink about 4 a week.

If it wasn't for V-8 I'd get no veggies in my diet whatsoever.

And I agree with someone who said Zima is the most disgusting drink.

Oh, wait, and the Bubble Gum soda I once tried.

Oh, and Bud's low carb beer, along with Coor's low carb beer.

Oh, and those energy drinks, like the one that gives you wings? Red Bull. That is just horrible! Carbonated gatorade, yuck!

Oh, and Gatorade Frost. Those are awful, too.

And fruit beers. Disgusting.

Regular V-8 tastes like vegetable soup. If I wanted to drink soup, I'd heat it up first, not drink it cold from a can.

The V-8 Fusion fruit drinks are pretty good. Some flavors are better than others.

You don't have an option for me.:cry:
I like it - but I sure don't chug it by the gallon.

I'll have one or two every couple of years. I'd rather eat my tomatos than drink them.

Am I the only one here who likes V-8? I like it in the a.m., especially with some vodka, Worchestshire sauce, Tabasco, and a squeeze of lime.

Um, I'm not an alcoholic. Really.

Unique

I save the alcohol for after lunch -
you know, in case I have to go somewhere that day.

Just a personal thing. ;)

Perfect for that Sunday morning hangover. (Not lately of course, being up the duff and all).

My mom uses V8 for soup stock and it tastes terrible.

There's nothing healthy about getting your vegetable soup stock processed, doused with sugar, preservatized, and fortified.

Of course, shadowferret and billy will probably have well-preserved corpses after all those preservatives.

Not healthy at all... (reaches for almond joys for breakfast)

I figure with all the preservatives I consume my family will save a fortune on funeral costs since they can skip the whole formadehyde part.

Clamato--the name alone is disgusting. It's ten times worse than V-8.

Who the hell would mix clam juice with tomato juice?

MidnightMuse
09-20-2006, 07:03 PM
How long has V8 been around? I vaguely recall trying it once, with one grandpa, and I've had nightmares about that taste ever since!

I think I'd rather drink Zebra pee. Or Zima.

Christine N.
09-20-2006, 07:06 PM
I love the smell of it. No, really. I also love the smell of tomato soup.

But I won't eat either of them. Bleck.

I can't stand the stuff, but my kids discovered it and they drink it by the gallon..or would if the stuff weren't so freaking expensive. My son will juice anything and add brewers yeast to it and drink the result. Heck, since they're still alive, I guess it won;t hurt them, but i can't be inthe same room when they drink it.

For the record, I cannot keep down a bloody mary either.

Uh ... me. :hi:

Heated clam broth with a pat of butter floating on top, then sprinkled with some white pepper is one of my favorites. Still, I'd rather have Lagavulin.

Don't like V-8 one little bit. For soups I may use tomato juice with a stock (vegetable or chicken stock) but never V-8. For bloody mary's - I use tomato juice.
V-8 just isn't right. (and I can't believe anyone would drink Clamato.)

I've had Cragganmore (while I was in Scotland, I think) and I remember it as being very nice. I haven't heard of Longmorn, but I may have to try it. Lagavulin is next to impossible to find any more.

I like V-8, especially the spicy version. It's one of the mainstays I carry with me in little cans when I travel, so I can at least get some veggies into my fast food road diet.

Not as bad as what me and friends call "Smurf on the Beach" It's equal portions of blue drink and coco solo coconut soda. It smells and tastes like suntan lotion. For some reason they like it.

V-8 completely, totally rules. What more can one ask from a small, canned drink? V-8 contains the hard-won juice from eight delicious vegetables, all masterfully blended into a red, velvety concoction guaranteed to not only give a body pep, but bring a spring to the step and a twinkle to the eye.

Besides, what I don't drink, I can use to clean my paintbrushes. :tongue

I've always wondered about that also, and believe it must've been by accident. Some clam diggers were probably drunk and put clam juice in their tomato juice instead of vodka. When they realized their mistake, they added vodka just the same, squeezed in some lime juice, and created one of the finest mixed drinks of all time.

I've got some Clamato in the fridge, but I'd be hard pressed to drink it straight. The same goes for V8.

Kate Thornton

I love V-8. I don't drink it chilled, but prefer it room temperature if drinking it straight. It's even better with a dash of hot sauce or garlic. When I was poor, it's what I had for dinner sometimes. The food of your childhood and the food of your hard times becomes the comfort food of your later years.

Chilled, it's great with gin as a Bloody Mary (dash in a bit of Tabasco and a celery stick)

Clamato is a *mixer*!!! Who ever heard of drinking it without the liquor??? Or it's a good base for Manhattan clam chowder...

You gotta be kidding me! Clamato is terriffic, all dressed up like a Bloody Mary--my friends from the Great White North introduced me to it, many years ago--they call it a Bloody Caesar (my best friend and I, however, call them "seizures"). Rim your glass with celery salt and enjoy!

If I'm in the right mood, V-8 is the drink of the gods. But most of the time, it's not my first choice. As for the V-8 fruit drinks, they're usually always on my "good drink" list.

I hate tomatoes in all forms that aren't ketchup, salsa, or lasagna.

So, V-8 doesn't make it onto the grocery list too often.

Love V-8 but it must NOT be the low sodium stuff, that is truly dreadful, but regular V-8 is delicious.

As for Clamato, I have never had it on it's own, but I do make a mean Caesar - add a stalk of celery, a squidge of lime, (and a dash of worchestershire, and a few shakes of tabasco) and you've got the major food groups covered - with the added kick of vodka. Yum!

There are two things that make my stomach heave:

V 8

and

Dr. Pepper.

Though I think carbonated ham in a can might 'rank' with the above.

It's called Manhattan Style Clam Chowder.

But I'll eat it hot with a spoon thank you.

Ewwwww! Who throws veggies in the blender and thinks that makes a drink. Blech. Clams and tomatoes should never meet. (New England Clam Chowder is the only way to go.) I'm gonna go have a nice cuppa tea and try to forget about you people.
