Neal has been talking about V8 so I decided to give it a try. Now if you know me well you might just know if I REALLY don't like something I can't stomach it; it WILL come up. I decided to chill the bottle first hoping the colder it is the easier it will be to drink it. Yesterday I pulled it out, measured 8 oz (want to make sure I get my full serving) and prepared to drink it. Seeing how when you're congested you can't taste anything, I decided to pinch my nose while drinking it. I assumed I could get it down, but was worried about the after taste. I pealed a banana so it would clean my mouth and give me a pleasant taste after downing the drink. Being very careful not to smell the stuff I pinched my nose and started drinking. My first thought was how great it was that I couldn't taste it and the texture was okay. Then it happened. Almost immediately really. My stomach started heaving. I was arguing with myself that I couldn't taste it so why was I rejecting it???? My stomach said it didn't matter that what went down must come up. ((sigh)) In the middle of losing my drink I let go of my nose. Oh my goodness, bad move! I felt sick for the rest of the evening. Worse yet, ever so often I could taste the nasty stuff. So, V8 can go into the same category as tomatoes and coffee; things that make me vomit.
