POM Wonderful? Yes It Is! - Review

A few weeks back I was contacted by a rep from POM Wonderful asking if I would like to try their product. I have seen POM in the stores and always wanted to try it since I have heard so many wonderful things from friends about it, but it just never made it to my grocery list. So I was thrilled to have the opportunity. I asked if POM was looking for a review and she said no, they just wanted to give me the chance to try it ...how refreshing!

So here I am writing a review of POM Wonderful because I appreciated being approached as just a tester/consumer and not as a blogger and also because I really like it. What was sent to me was a few bottles of the POM 100% Pomegranate Juice. Wow the flavor is interesting. Defiantly pomegranate. The sweet  followed by that sharp tart flavor that hits the back of your palate (personally I like that) is very refreshing. Being a Cali girl I really like that the product is grown and processed right here in California. This is what gives POM the fresh, clean from the "tree to the bottle" taste.



The Science

Did you know POM products are backed by $32 million in medical research...no shiz! $32 million.. and they are the only pomegranate juice that is backed by any medical research at all. Talk about believing in your product and wanting to give your customers the best.  What are has all this medical research found out about POM Wonderful? How about promoting heart health, prostate health, proper erectile function and being a antioxidant powerhouse!

POM’s Unique Antioxidants

"POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice and POMx are full of antioxidants called phytochemicals. Phytochemicals protect plants from harmful elements in the environment, like ultraviolet radiation and pests. They also provide plants with their sensory characteristics such as color, flavor and smell. Polyphenols are an important class of phytochemical. And tannins, particularly punicalagin, anthocyanins and ellagic acid are all members of the polyphenol family. While many fruits contain some of these antioxidants, pomegranates have large amounts of all three. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice contains a great deal of these vital elements because of the way we press our fruit. Immediately upon harvest, we take our fruit to our specially designed presses, which are similar to those used to press champagne grapes. These presses allow us to extract antioxidants and polyphenols from the inedible portion of the fruit, as well as the arils." This information was taken from the POM website.



At Pom Wonderful they do not just focus on thier yummy pomegranate juice, they have many more products to make you feel great and help improve your health. Along with 5 other flavors of the POM Juice they also have Fresh Fruit, POMx Tea , POMx Iced Coffee, and much more.


How about some scrumptious recipes? That's right the POM Wonderful website has recipes and it will make you drool! It's winter, it's chilly out right? Sounds like a perfect time for a hot bowl of soup. How about Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Soup..yumm! Or how about for breakfast a POM Pumpkin Oatmeal Brulee? Maybe you want something sweet after a nice savory dinner try a POM Tiramisu and some POM Banana Freeze for the kiddos. What ever your looking for POM has a wonderful community for finding recipes, health related information, events and much more.
