To say the energy drink market is crowded would be an understatement. So many companies have jumped on the energy drink bandwagon that I don’t think the bandwagon moves anymore because its wheels have been crushed by the weight of all those companies who want a piece of the multibillion dollar energy drink market. Or the bandwagon might not be moving because Steven Seagal’s energy drinks are as heavy as he is now.

One of the latest companies to jump on the bandwagon is V8.

V8 V-Fusion + Energy drinks are made by combining a blend of vegetable and fruit juices with green tea. The green tea provides 80 milligrams of caffeine, which is the same amount in a skinny can of Red Bull. Each energy drink has 50 calories and don’t contain added sugar. The 2.5-ounce V8 Energy Shots contain a blend of nine vegetable and fruit juices, plus green tea. Each energy shot also provide vitamins A, C, E, and a number of B vitamins.

The V8 V-Fusion + Energy Drinks are available at 2,400 Walmart locations and retail for $3.98 for a six-pack of 8-ounce cans. The beverages come in two flavors — Pomegranate/Blueberry and Peach/Mango. ED Junkie posted a review of the V8 V-Fusion + Energy drinks. The V8 Energy Shots retail for $2.99 and are available at participating locations in Colorado, Florida, and Minnesota.
