POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice Review

picture of Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice

I’ve heard about the benefits of Pomegranates this winter. We tried the fresh fruit and really did not care for it. I’ve eyed the POM Wonderful juices but just didn’t know if we’d like it. When we had the opportunity to try a case of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice, I was eager to untwist the first bottle!

POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice Hands On Review

We drink a lot of juice in the Orley house with 2 kids. I was a bit reluctant to introduce pomegranate juice as I wasn’t sure if the little ones would like it. Elijah proclaimed “It’s TASTY!” and Elizabeth agreed. They loved having their own bottle of POM Wonderful although they only drank about 1/2 in one setting which is the actual serving size. Now they ask for POM Wonderful as we walk through the produce section at Giant Eagle. My husband and I enjoyed every single drop of the 8 oz bottle. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice is a heavy juice, with a bit of sweetness and tartness dancing on your tongue. It is a mouth full of flavor, not typical with other juices. You can really taste the quality and freshness. picture of Kids Love Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice

There are many health benefits of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice but one objection is the price. At about $3 for 8 oz size, people might reach for another juice claiming to be 100%. Be forewarned, 3 independent labs tested 10 other brands claiming to have 100% pomegranate juice, they found that 9 out of 10 so-called pomegranate juices had added sugar, colorants and other low-grade fruit juices. You get what you pay for and you can taste the difference too.

The 80z size is a perfect size for on-the-go, this is a limited edition size that I hope they keep. They are also available in 16oz, 24oz, 48oz, and 60oz bottles. The prices are less per ounce as the sizes go up. I know my family could go through 60 oz a week easily so I’m going to find this size and add it to my shopping list.

As a mom, I love that there is nothing added to POM Wonderful juices, no added sugar, juices, preservatives, or colors. I also like the amazing antioxidant benefits of POM Wonderful. There is more antioxidant power in this product than other drinks known for antioxidant richness, including red wine (which of course kids can’t have), blueberry juice, green tea, and cranberry juice. This is reason enough for me to include POM Wonderful in my family’s daily regimen.

    Dr. Ignarro received his Nobel Prize discovering that nitric oxide is a critical signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system and plays a central role in blood pressure regulation and proper arterial function. Because oxidative stress leads to the rapid inactivation of nitric oxide, powerful antioxidants such as pomegranate juice can protect against its premature destruction.

    Unlike competitors, POM does not use filler juices, which are little better than sugar water

    In addition to our 100% pomegranate juice, we offer four pomegranate juice blends, all of which feature pomegranate juice as the first ingredient. With POM, you’ll never find “pomegranate juice” buried in the middle or at the end of a long ingredient list.

Plus, we’re the only pomegranate company whose products are backed by over $34 million in scientific research” – which means a lot to me since these days we often don’t know the origin of products and/or their safety and integrity.

    My doctor said I should be drinking as much POM as I can (afford!) – so this wouild be a very very welcome prize!
