Is the calorie content of V8 VFusion juice worth the health benefits?

Asked by poofandmook (17212 points ) May 18th, 2010

I admit it: I got sucked in by the stuff they put at the checkout lanes and bought a 12 oz. bottle of the stuff, in strawberry banana flavor. I must admit it’s darn tasty, and I am definitely one of those people that needs a little help getting the daily veggie/fruit intake.

But this stuff packs a whopping 170 calories per bottle (which is 1 serving) and 38g of sugar (no sugar added). It also, according to the label, gives me my full veggie and fruit servings, full vitamin A & C, 20% vitamin E, potassium, and other good stuff.

But 170 calories seems like a lot for a freaking beverage! Is it worth it?
