I got mine today! It took exactly 5 weeks vs. the estimated 4. Although I feel a lil jipped cuz a lady on their FB page said she got hers in only 4 days- oh well, I’m not gonna be petty- it was just an observation. I’m just happy that I got one of my top flavor choices.
Now for some preliminary observations (and, unfortunately, drawbacks). The packaging is a bit misleading- on the front, in a highly visible green circle it says it has “1 combined serving of fruit and vegetables” making it appear to have less nutritional value (save the green tea extract) than regular V-Fusion light. But there’s a small white cross that leads you to the back under the white nutrition facts box that says Each 8 fl. oz. provides 1/4 cup each fruits and veggies, bringing the complete bottle to 1.5 (combined) servings of fruits and veggies… I also don’t like that the white box names a serving as 1 bottle (12oz) instead the normal 8oz serving of juice. I also don’t like that this is only 50% juice. I know there is tea in here, but it’s extract. It’s not like they use steeped and decanted loose tea. I also don’t like that they don’t tell us how much tea is in here.
Ok, sorry about that- but I had to state the facts. Now on to the taste. Now I’ve had several of the regular V8 V-Fusions, including the raspberry. It’s almost as good as the blackberry which is my favorite. Unlike other flavors, there’s virtually no taste from the veggies… so let’s see how this one compares…
SCORE! Strong, smooth, slightly sweet raspberry flavor… no veggies! No tea either. Idea is wonderful, execution is horrible. If this sounds good to you, do your tongue (and the rest of your body) a favor- pick up a regular bottle of Raspberry V-Fusion (or any other flavor) so you get 2 servings of fruits and veggies per 8oz, add 1tsp of matcha, and shake!=D
