Im not really authorised to remove statements, so i added a citation needed to the part of V being healthy other then the sugar, if this statement were correct - would that not make Sugar free V a healthy energy drink?, I do not think so —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:04, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

So if "V" shares 53% of the energy drink market in Australia, how much does Red Bull share?.. Just curious.. :)

The market share of Res Bull in Australia is around 20% In the two countries where it has been launched, V market share is better than Red Bull one.

We need a source on these figures. The only source on the page at the moment is from V themselves and shouldn't be used as a source. More so when the first sentence is, ahem, "‘V' sells a shitload more than any other energy drink in Australia". The KZA (talk) 03:27, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I have worked in administration of supermarkets, where is a citation that Monster is major competitor? Most stores that I have worked at or communicated with sell very little Monster, or don't stock it at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:41, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

<ChiggenWingz - Nov 28> If I remember correctly, V also originally came in a 600ml bottle when it first came out? A friend of mine has it as a collectors item. Does anyone have any facts on it so it could be added to the page?

Around the world[edit]

Where else is V being sold?

I know that the drink started being marketed in Argentina in 2006. I was there last month and even saw TV commercials of the brand. Danone, the company who distributes the product, want's to introduce V into the Argentine market. Competing with the popular brands at the moment which are Red-Bull, Black Fire and Speed. --CROWDUDE 23:47, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

100k and a pallet of 'v'[edit]

There is also a new promo in New Zealand atm via bebo and a stand-alone site V Republic. This is a NZ only competion to find the best way to use $100k and a pallet of 'v' via submitting ideas thru their site and therefor judged.

Black V[edit]

The article says Black V is coffee flavoured. Apart from not actually tasting like coffee, I don't think any of the marketing for it mentions coffee either. Am I wrong? The KZA (talk) 03:27, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Key Ingredients?[edit]

Cocaine and Speed under key ingredients? Speed even links to "measure of movement", obviously vandalism. They have now been removed. Physischitzo (talk) 10:50, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Sounds like an endorsement[edit]

The marketing initiatives section especially, but I think this article is biased... No remarks on the possible side effects of use or the fact it contains unusual ingredients... but instead a section about marketing campaigns involving helping people? Also, the language in which it is written is very one-sided. "Available in original and black." This is VERY odd. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aleph am455 (talkcontribs) 11:01, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Black V tastes wrong!!![edit]

This drink was brought from one of the Wearhouse groups, but the taste is strange it is not the same as all the other black V I have had in the past, have you change the fomula of this drink? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:20, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

This isn't Frucor customer service/complaints dept. It's about improving the main article. If you don't like it, don't drink it! Thanks DaveDodgy (talk) 13:21, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

What about red V?[edit]

I hear they're stopping making Red V, wtf? Its like the only flavour that isn't crap! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:33, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

energy shots[edit]

I notice this requires citiation .I can vouch for this as this happened to me. "V energy shots Samples were sent to Vrepublic members with a warning that they shouldn't be consumed by those under 16 years of age. However, Frucor sent the energy shot samples without checking the ages of all the recipients. V apologised for the error with a phone call and a letter" —Preceding unsigned comment added by Chaos2501 (talkcontribs) 06:31, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
