But wait a minute. Acai is a berry. That means it’s a natural food that grows from the earth, right? Just because a bunch of Acai Berry pimps are trying to cash in and exploit this exotic fruit doesn’t mean I have to discriminate. I’m gonna try it.
Sip, Sip, Sip….
V-8 Fusion has never impressed me as a brand to keep stocked in the fridge. The varieties I tried are on the thick side and too vegetable-ish. So why are they promoting this one as an Acai drink if this berry isn’t even listed as one of the main ingredients?
Well never matter that because it’s amazing! I wouldn’t be able to pin-point the Acai if my life depended on it, but I don’t even care. This juice is so smooth and fruity, and leaves a wonderful aftertaste. It also contains sweet potatoes and carrots, but all I can taste is a sweet, fruity concoction of:
- White grapes
I’m amazing at how well these ingredients blend and compliment one another. And I’m sold! It’s definitely not your run of the mill fruit juice. If you’ve never tried V-8 Fusion, or you did, but gave up on the product, now’s the time to start from scratch with Acai Mixed Berry.
