What’s in a V8?

May 9, 2024


The eight vegetables in V8 are tomato, spinach, carrot, celery, beets, lettuce, watercress, and parsley. V8 was invented in 1933 by W.G. Peacock and his son in Evanston, Illinois. Thank goodness there’s no couchgrass, cleavers, and crampbark in there (can you guess the reference?).
