Default Just tried my first V8

Wasn't too impressed. Do ya'll like them? Has anyone tried the other variations of V8, are they any good?

I love V8 but it's LOADED with sodium.

My wife buys me the low sodium and I just add salt to it.

Real good for breakfast with a double shot of Vodka and a couple dashes of hot sauce.

My first V8 was a 1957 Lincoln Premiere, I've been running V8's ever since.

900 mgs ! That would have to be per gallon or I'd have a problem.

The spicier tomato juice ones make an easy bloody mary.

Yeah, it's kind of like snorting an entire box of salt.

I love V8. Put it over ice with some pepper and a lemon and or lime. Fantastic on a hot summer day!

Side note, I hate tomatoes haha

Makes the best Bloody Marys. Somewhat filling. Beyond that, no.

These are GREAT on a hot day fishing in the Baja sun. The extra salt is actually good for you because you're sweating so much of it out. Beer and tomato juice with lime and spices. What's not to like?

Straight V8, ehhhh not so much. I think they scrape half the Bonneville Salt Flats to make one bottle of that stuff!

I've seen those around. I may take your word and give it a try. I just can't picture the two going well together.

Bearded Clamato without the beard is even better.
