POV: It’s 10:30 a.m. and you’re halfway through your first task of the day (whether that be a towering pile of laundry, a PowerPoint deck or both. WFH life, am I right?). That’s when it hits, like clockwork: The large cold brew you finished a few hours ago seems but a distant memory and you get the irrepressible urge for a jolt of caffeine—something to get you through the rest of your long to-do list. We’ve all been there. But we’re here to tell you to pause. Put down the second cup and let us to introduce you to a new mid-morning (or anytime) beverage you can feel good about.

OK, I’m Listening…

It’s called V8 +ENERGY®(yes, the same V8 from your famous Bloody Mary recipe). It’s a convenient, portable drink with delicious fruit flavors powered by caffeine from natural black and green tea. Refreshing and made with no added sugar, V8 +ENERGY has 80 mg of caffeine. That’s comparable to a cup of coffee and the leading energy drink.   

Why Should I Make the Switch?

Well, not only are you getting that steady energy boost you want, but each 8-ounce drink also contains one combined serving of vegetables and fruits. And if you’re anything like us, your fruit and veg intake could probably use as much of a makeover as your coffee habit. We can drink our vitamins? Sign us up.

Benefits of V8 +ENERGY include:

  • 80 mg of caffeine from black and green tea
  • Plant-based energy beverage
  • One combined serving of vegetables and fruit per 8-ounce can
  • Excellent source of B vitamins
  • No added sugar
  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten-free
  • No high-fructose corn syrup

What’s Really in It?

V8 uses a variety of healthy ingredients to create their iconic blends—like carrot, sweet potato and apple—which together provide a combined serving of fruit and veggies with a delicious, fruit-forward flavor. How many other drinks can say that?

There are multiple flavors to choose from—think: Pomegranate Blueberry and Peach Mango, to name a few. Or if you’re more of a carbonated fan, V8 +SPARKLING ENERGY® is lightly bubbly and comes in four flavors of its own.

Where Can I Find It?

While it’s the perfect swap for another cup of morning coffee, V8 +ENERGY is great for steady energy any time of day, whenever you need it—from afternoon pick-me-up to post-workday boost. Get it wherever you food shop, right in the juice aisle, and peruse some of our favorite flavors below.
