Reviews for Spicy Tomato Juice
"This was an awesome no brainer in my book! This juice is excellent. I had been looking for something to make my Bloody Mary's with that was low sodium and what I did find that was low sodium was not really low sodium for me. This fit the bill beyond words and I now have something for my Bloody Mary's and I can control the salt. Excellent flavor! All smiles now!"
