Product Review – POM Wonderful juices

This is a bit on the late side, but I definitely wanted to get it in.

Perhaps you remember my review of POM back in July.  If you don’t want to go read it, the gist is “I love it and want to marry it and have it’s pomegranate babies.”

Not long after that, I received another shipment of POM Wonderful beverages. These were iced coffee drinks with anti-oxidants or something. These I did not love, but I didn’t really want to say anything, because I love the company so much. They left a weird aftertaste in my mouth – much like the aftertaste I get from things like Cool Whip & other fake foods. However, I did use the last one in a smoothie, and that was quite delicious.

Apparently my lack of review did not completely anger the super people at POM, because about a month ago, I got more stuff! This time, it was some mixed juices – a pomegranate kiwi and a pomegranate nectarine. They were in slightly larger bottles, so I shared with the architect.

He loved the juices. A lot. I enjoyed them thoroughly. Not as much as he did, though. I think I prefer the original POM.

However, I was SO INSPIRED by these wonderful juices (which really were good, even if they didn’t quite measure up to the wonderful-ness of the first POM Wonderful I tried) that I actually went out and bought an actual pomegranate.

Fortunately, there are instructions on the website so when I get brave enough to eat it, I can figure out exactly how to do that.

In conclusion – POM is a great company (especially Janny!) and I love their juices. And hopefully I love the fruit, too, and it isn’t too intimidating!

  1. Those POM people seem to be going all out for the bloggers: http://www.visionsofsugarplum.com/2009/10/pomegranate-affair.html

    • WAIT! All I got was free juice! Where’s my free trip to Fresno?

      On the other hand, Fesno? Not on the list of top destinations!

  2. Hey great review! I just stumbled on your website from your comment on Susan’s (Nurse on the Run) blog. Are you originally a SoDak girl?!? I live in the huge city of Sioux Falls now :p but grew up in a speck of a town originally. Just thought that was crazy to run across a SD reference in the great blog world. 🙂

    • I grew up in a tiny (population 120!) town in NE South Dakota! My family is in the Black Hills now, so I don’t get back to east river much now (although I have friends in Sioux Falls). I may have to email you so we can compare tiny town stories (for anonymity reasons, I don’t disclose my actual hometown).

      It is pretty funny to run into other South Dakota connections on the great big internet!

  3. I love pomegranates. When we were kids, Mom used to cut one in half, give a half each to my sister and I – in a bowl with a spoon and we would just dig away.

    I actually don’t care for the POM juice because to me it’s not as good as eating fresh pomegranate.
