"‘Original’ energy drinks continue to be the largest segment of the category and continue to maintain strong year-on-year growth – with V Energy leading this charge.
"It is iconic and we know Aussies reach for V Green when they want a burst of energy and joy to help them through the day.
"The new taste is everything people already love, with more of the best bits.
"We spent time with drinkers of V Green during the development to understand what they loved most, which has resulted in a smoother, more invigorating V Green.
"Combined with its updated design, this evolution aligns with our mission to deliver positive energy."
She said their change in V Green reflects their 'willingness to continue to innovate and drive the category forward to give consumers what they want'.
"By changing V Green - both from a flavour and design perspective - we believe we have met the needs of existing drinkers and new ones," she added.
But what is this mysterious new flavour you might ask?
Well, V Energy says it has 'the same core taste but with a smoother, fruitier flavour'.
Interesting, very interesting.
