POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice Review

I was recently contacted about reviewing some POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, and happily agreed to take on the experience. I received 4, 16 ounce bottles of 100% pomegranate juice in which Maddie and I drank one bottle, my husband and son drank another, I took one to school for a nutrition activity, and gave one away to a friend who was just giddy over trying it since she'd heard such great things about it's health benefits.

If you happen to not know POM Wonderful let me take just a moment and introduce you.

POM Wonderful is a global brand committed to innovation and wellness. We grow and market pomegranates and pomegranate-based products that are healthy, honest and essential to the well-being of humankind.

Ours is the only company that grows, harvests, processes and ships our own pomegranates. Plus, we’re the only pomegranate company whose products are backed by over $32 million in scientific research.

POM Wonderful’s commitment to wellness also means caring about the well-being of our planet. Our sustainable business practices include:

•Using the latest drip-irrigation technologies in our orchards to minimize use of one of California’s scarcest resources – water.
•Making productive use of every single part of the pomegranate. What’s left over is used as cattle feed – no landfills for us!
•Manufacturing our bottles right next to our filling plant, which means no wasteful transportation of air-filled bottles.
•Employing an intelligent routing system to ensure our products travel the fewest miles possible to reach store shelves.
•LEED Silver certified corporate offices in Los Angeles, CA.
We invite you to enjoy our fresh pomegranates, our 100% pomegranate juice and our growing line of POMx-based products.

Not only are they healthy, kind to the environment, but also delicious. I took a bottle into my classroom where a group of toddlers experienced their first taste of pomegranate juice. Since this month's theme is about winter and ice, we froze the juice, mixed with a small amount of water, in an ice cube tray with popcicle sticks. That afternoon the kids enjoyed a healthy, nutritious snack and loved it! I even got a, "yum, yum, yum, Ms. Toni, this is tasty!" Even my co-workers/friends enjoyed the treat.

And, as a mom, with such great health benefits, I decided to let Maddie have a taste of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice. This being her first juice I wasn't too sure how she would react, but she, too, loved it!

POM Wonderful also offers great recipes from appetizers to desserts, teas , iced coffee , which I will definitely be trying next, and even POMx bars . Overall, my family has now become hooked on POM Wonderful, and I look forward to bringing in even more of their nutritious items into my home.

Would I recommend this item? Most definitely. If you enjoy a lifestyle focused on health, then POM Wonderful is the place for all your juice needs and more. Strengths? The products speak for themselves in health benefits. Weaknesses? Not that I could find. :) I thank POM Wonderful for the chance to try their product and will gladly be going back for more.
