I like V8, but the sodium content is on the high side.

I just had a few V8 Bloody Marys.

But I use V8 for more than drinking. I use it for cooking. Making up a gumbo, after the roux I'll use V8 to make the sauce. Veggie soup? After the saute add chicken stock (or veg) and V8. Braising some short rib? Call for V8.

My only problem with V8 is some dipstick that feels like we need 20 varieties of it. I hate to search for regular old V8, what they call 'Original' now, and it REALLY pissed me off recently to see it labeled "Original" - "Now Better Tasting"

Used to love v8, but I guess I over did it. For awhile I was going through at least a gallon of the Tabasco flavored one every few days. I can't imagine how bad my sodium must have been.

I love a couple of tall glasses of spicy V8 right after a long bike ride.

Remember you just overclocked a motherboard.

Stay on the porch and off my highway.

You Americans should try and track down some v8 with clam juice in it. A little Worcestershire sauce and pepper, Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Boxers are better, straight from the juicer no additives

Clamato is readily available in the States. It is especially popular to mix with Budweiser beer to make a michelada.
