A (POM)Wonderful Giveaway

Posted: February 1, 2010 at 8:23 pm

I told you there was an exciting post coming 😉 I'm thrilled for it! My first giveaway!!! Yay!

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by POMWonderful to sample some of their 100% all natural Pomegranate juice. Of course, I jumped on the offer because I have always been intrigued by the juice and had never sampled it. And I was super happy when I received this in the mail...

Well, was I missing out or what?! I am not a big juice drinker, because often times they are too sweet and sugary tasting to me.  I do enjoy super sweet stuff...but typically in baked or frozen form 😉 I was very pleasantly surprised that this juice had more of a tart taste that was very refreshing. I enjoyed some with our typical Saturday morning pancake breakfast.

Antioxidant Power Breakfast

And it's an even bigger bonus that it is all natural. Here are some facts and information about this awesome beverage...

  • It is the only brand 100% guaranteed to contain 100% authentic pomegranate juice with no added sugars, preservatives, colors, or cheap filler juices.
  • POM Wonderful controls quality by growing their own fruit, picking it by hand, squeezing it with their own proprietary presses, and manufacturing their own bottles.
  • It is a superior source of antioxidants with a high concentration of polyphenols.

  • It is backed by $32 million in medical research showing the benefits of drinking 8oz of POM Wonderful juice daily - particularly in prostate, cardiovascular, and erectile function. To view the full studies go here.

There is so much you can do with POM Wonderful juice as well. I've already tried it out in a smoothie, which was delicious.

Please excuse the tired, bed-head look. It was first thing in the morning, but I just had to get a Smoothie 'Stache pic for Janetha!

Makenzie likes the juice too! 🙂

And there are all sorts of recipes you can use it in too. I personally think these look awesome...
