(FTC disclosure. POM Wonderful sent me a free case of POM Wonderful 100% Pure Pomegranate Juice. They have not asked me to review or blog about the product, nor do I receive any compensation for doing so.)

So the nice people at POM Wonderful sent me a case of POM Pomegranate juice to try! First things first, the bottles are adorable, aren’t they?

I like to envision that one is a boy and one is a girl and they’re all “Hi babe-eh.”

The first thing I did was take a look at the provided health benefits of the POM juice and learned that red wine has the second highest antioxidant potency POM  has uniquely high levels of powerful antioxidants. I LOVE ANTIOXIDANTS!!

I love this information!! THANKS POM!! (source: POM’s site)

The next thing I did was take a sip and find that it is really tasty stuff. Really tasty like I could just chug a bottle in a couple of seconds. Which is why I don’t drink a lot of juice because I could easily consume a few hundred extra calories in a day just drinking delicious, healthy juice. So I did this:

I do this sometimes with Cranberry juice, too. It’s good for your bladder. Real cranberry juice, not the sugary 5% juice crap.

Yes, I drink out of big, plastic cups. And I don’t like ice in my drinks. Now you know. When I come to your house and accept your offer for a glass of water, I expect it to come in a big, plastic cup with no ice.

Then, while I was enjoying my carbonated POM juice and seltzer drink I went to the website and learned that POM is, like, really healthy. And I tried really, really hard to read that whole page but then I got distracted by all those studies and then decided to do this:

I r not Chuck! I. R. NOT. CHUCK!!!!!

Then it was dinner time so I went and made a salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette and I was all excited to share my recipe with you until I looked a little harder and found that POM already did that. And a bit more. So, whatever. I’m not the first person to think of making a POM salad dressing. La dee da. But you know I will find a recipe that they HAVEN’T made, and then I’ll MAKE it, and then I’ll share it.

And you’ll all be impressed, won’t you?

    You always bring a smile to my face…thanks! Needed that today 🙂 And, you’ve inspired me to try POM! I am a believer in spreading the love though, so I will also need to indulge in red wine. All in the name of antioxidants, of course.

    Laureen – That’s a double antioxidant treat! HEALTHIEST TREAT EVER! You should have paired it with red wine. The oxidants would have been running for their lives!

She has been sharing her sometimes nonsensical thoughts and self-amusing stories online since 2002 and currently spends a good deal of her time wrangling her 90 pound Rottweiler and 60 pound Boxer.

The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
