Pom: Some Damn Expensive Juice

POST #    745

For the most part, I have always loved pomegranates. They are tasty and fun to look at. My one complaint is that they are hard to eat. A product introduced last year tries to introduce pomegranates to the general public and introduce how healthy pomegranates can be.

Last night, I tried the POM's mango flavored pomegranate juice. At $3.99 a pop, this isn't really a cheap drink. Pom was tasty, but I kind of think it tasted like grape juice. I'm not sure the drink is affordable enough to have me drink it again. I'll just stick to the actual fruit when it's in season. On the plus side, the bottle was cool.

- POM product site (quite extensive)

I just love the packaging.

ya know, pom is interesting and all, but what i want to know, is where can you find a good chicken. cause, it's mighty hard to find good chicken in nyc. not nasty plain chicken, but something with beer involved. beer always makes chicken better.

Your right Wendy, I find chicken goooood. Not mighty fine, but gooood. Tien you should write about chicken more often and not about some nasty too expensive drinky hoo. Tell us where to find or make cheap chicken - the type of chicken that brings Tanya Harding to mind.

I've been a little obsessed with POM lately. Not necessarily the best thing at those prices.

Not mixed with anything else, the mango-pom is the most drinkable to me. Tangerine-pom has an off-taste, blueberry-pom is like drinking blueberry syrup, and plain pom is as you said. Cherry-pom is next on my list. The poms become wonderful when mixed with sparkling water or blenheim ginger ale. I imagine they would be really good in a mixed drink.

...and, like corie, i love the packaging. I'm a sucker for unusually shaped printed bottles.

i bet pom + vodka would be good. THAT i would be willing to pay 3.99 for

Tink and Wendy, I donít know what your obsession is about chicken and what it has to do with POM..but, man oh man, I have had some good chicken lately! Unfortunatly I don't know the recipe, but I do have this roommate that has a knack for combining chicken and Heineken. it is mmmmm mmmmm goodness.
Oh! And POM is in need of a disclaimer--clumsy people should pour juice into a glass before drinking.

rachelle, i think a pop and vodka would cost more than $3.99.

and wtf is all this chicken talk? sometimes you wonder how people get to your site.

what the hell does pom have to do with chicken??? i'm lost.

Posted by: joe at February 4, 2004 2:35 PM


Chicken is the f'essence of life. Boy you don't know your momma till you know chicken.

Tien, I am appalled at some people' lack of knowledge in this subject. Really you should have an education section devoted to chicken.

Joe, I don't mean to be rude at all; I am just passionate when it comes to this.

My little pomegranate juice!

rachelle: i say we get a few bottles of pom, a few bottles of vodka, gin, etc. and start experimenting!

tink: given your passion for chickens maybe you should start your own chicken-centric blog.

i've had pom and vodka, as i will generally drink vodka with anything. my suggestion: vodka mixed with half pom, half tonic. the pom is too strong...it blots out the yumminess of the vodka.

someone was handing out free bottles of pom about two months ago on the UWS .. i agree that the bottle is very cool but i think the pom itself is too strong .. very good when watered down with vodka and tonic as corie suggested.

POM is ten cents cheaper at Fairway!
