POM can be used in cocktails, mocktails, and cooking. I didn't know this when I took the photo, but a whole range of recipes can be found on their website. Considering I don't have lots of ingredients listed in the recipes, I will be just reviewing it as a drink.
From multiple tastings, over multiple nights, our conclusions are as follows;
- On it's own, some of us found that it had a slight drying effect on the mouth. I have had this with other drinks I have tried in the past.
- The drying effect can be solved by adding lemonade for a nice fizzy concoction
- Some of us felt fizz was mandatory when consuming POM
- The rest of us really like it on it's own
- Dad asked me if the bottle was meant to look like pomegranates; a couple of days later, I jokingly concluded it was meant to look like a prostate since it is good for your heart and your prostate... for those of us that have a prostate! I found it hard throwing the bottle in the bin though, it was such a nice looking bottle.
- We didn't really feel like it had a pomegranate flavour to it, but it was a nice refreshing drink with the added fizz of lemonade or lemon squash. Health benefits are always a bonus
- I would really like to try the other flavours, like the pomegranate blueberry, pomegranate mango, and pomegranate cherry.
The POM army, waiting to attack..
Some facts about POM Wonderful:
- It contains more antioxidants than red wine, grape juice, acai juice and even green tea.
- In every 475ml bottle, there is no added sugar or artificial ingredients, just juice from five pomegranate varieties
- Primary research areas for health benefits have included the prostate and the cardiovascular system
Thanks again Lindsay for sending me out some samples to try!
Hope you all have a POM-tastic day!
