Many of you, especially around Los Angeles, have probably seen the recent advertisement blitz on billboards throughout the city. 1950’s-style cartoon explosions ala Superman comics, exhibiting the “blast” of healthy power sure to be dropped into your life when you drink Pom Wonderful pure pomegranate juice.
The kind folks at Pom Wonderful reached out to Organic Eating Daily, and offered to send over a case of the juice. We thought — sure! Why not? And boy were we glad. The juice is great, the bottles are shaped in an interesting way, the portions in each little plastic jar aren’t too big, and there is no sugar added: just 100% authentic pomegranate juice.
A Few Facts About the Healthy Side of Pure Pomegranate Juice
From Pom’s website: “POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice is the only pomegranate juice backed by $25 million in medical research.” Apparently, they are the only pomegranate juice backed by any medical research.
According to Pom Wonderful, they’re up on the fact that much chatter has been going lately with regard to pomegranates and the health of our hearts, prostates, erectile function and more. Further, they commend the promising results in the preliminary stages, but assert that “all of the research has been done on POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice.” Not on the competition. Named after a unique variety of pomegranate (the Wonderful), all of their juice comes from this fruit, and from California. And all of the fruit is juiced with their own proprietary technology, making Pom Wonderful a truly unique beverage.
Pomegranates and Fresh Fruit Juice
This seemed to me to be an excellent way to get the benefits of healthy fruits and vegetables, which many of us, including myself, never seem to get enough of. The juice itself hedges towards prune juice in its basic flavor, like a thick red grape juice. It’s not as dense or heady as prunes, and not as sweet as grapes. It’s a bit bitter – but nothing to make your lips pucker. All in all, it’s kind of perfect. Rich, flavorful, refreshing.
