Goal 50 - Try pomegranate juice

Been there, done that. It's pretty good! Kinda grapey, kinda cranberry-ish, and (as my youngest says) with pumpkinish overtones. It's very strong, not as sweet as I expected, and it leaves a dry aftertaste. I guess I could get used to it.

Ive always loved all things pom.

seriously. Ive ruined many shirts in my 40 years on earth as I devoured those dang seeds :)

Gena said...

I haven't tried it yet. I did see a pomegranate juice mix the other day - something strange like pom/cranberry or pom/apple. I was scared, so I left it there!

Loved pomegranates as a kid! Mom, maybe not so much as they were pretty messy and STAINED like a tattoo! Haven't tried the juice. I'm pretty much a whole fruit kind o guy. Gotta clean my own stains now, however :-)

Thanks for visiting my column!

I like it, but the stuff I had was too sweet. Hmmm...maybe I had different stuff? I thought it was pom, but not sure now!

It's got antioxidents in it like a lot of fruits, so definately good for you!

I can only have a sip at a time and that's enough for me- like Diana, mine was rather sweet. Could also just be different tastes, though!

Now pomegranate seeds, on the other hand, I could eat lots of:)

Haha, glad you tried it! I only get it once in a while, since I find it to come with a pricey tag.

Not big on the pom seeds. Haven't tried the juice alone, though. May have to give it a go.

Love pomegranates. And the juice. Mix it with champagne - you'll be addicted. :)

Melissa said...

Now you're talking, Bag Lady!!! I have about a quarter of the bottle left, and I'm going to try that.

And I hear you about the priciness of it. I was a bit shocked.

I did think it was sweet, just not as sweet as I expected.

I didn't like it at all. I'll have the champagne though.
