Supercharge that V8

6 Comments

Feeling a little fatigued after a hangover? Wean yourself off the booze with a can of Vegete, made of one-fifth fruit juice, one-fifth vegetable juice — and 4% alcohol. (Don’t ask about the remaining 56%.) The drink is the result of collaboration between Asahi and Kagome, the company that “made the tomato a staple of the Japanese diet,” as it proudly claims on its website.

All told, Vegete contains the nectars of four kinds of fruit and the pressed goodness of 21 vegetables. And it tastes like motor oil. (Beau Miller/Metropolis)

Don't ask about water? Why not?

Either that or accuracy in journalism.

I thought this was an article about turbo charging a V8 engine. Was already to rank on the timing of this article. Then to find out it's just about liquid sludge is a total let down.

BTW the vending machine business is getting hit hard by the rising cost of gas and the real estate industry getting murdered. People are going to the convenience stores to buy drinks. So this liquid sludge is a pipe dream. Ain't going to sell.

Suggestion to producer of this product, put more focus on other product lines. Whether the liquid sludge tastes good or not is irrelevent....
