Pomegranate Juice Wonderfulness
The folks at POM Wonderful found my blog and offered to send me a case of their pomegranate juice to try. Normally, I’m not much a juice drinker. I learned a while ago that when drinking my calories, I prefer them to come in the form of wine.
- I loved it….sweet but not too sweet, tart but not too tart. I also LOVE the bottle shape.
- I feel like you could make a really nice spritzer out of it. It’s light enough that if you mix it with a crisp white wine, it’d be a good summer BBQ drink.
- I love cranberry juice but I think POM is even more powerful tasting than cranberry juice so I guess in a way I can believe the claim that it has more antioxidants.
- I think it’s worth the $4 because you can’t drink it like water or any other regular juice, you have to nurse it and let your taste buds get used to it.
- Is it something I would grab first thing in the juice aisle? NO. Maybe if I were feeling a little sickly or weak and felt like a boost I would.
- I had to mix water with it because it was way too strong on its own. Reminds me of wine but without the alcohol — might make a good substitute for a non-drinker at a party.
According to POM, their juice has more antioxidant power than other drinks, including red wine, blueberry juice, green tea, and cranberry juice. Patients drinking POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice in clinical trials have experienced promising results in heart health, prostate health, and erectile function.
I can’t vouch for how the juice affected my health but I can say that I enjoyed the tannin taste on my tongue and liked knowing that I was drinking something very good for me — especially as I’m on my cleanse still (kind of — last night I went a bit overboard with cupcakes, brownies, and chocolate peanut butter cups). One drawback of POM Wonderful is that only 8 oz. packs a 150 calorie punch. For me, those are calories I’d generally rather be eatingTags: pom wonderful, pomegranate
