Delicious New PomWonderful Juice Blends

POM Wonderful, the leading pomegranate juice company in the US, is introducing two new juice blends this month: POM Nectarine and POM Kiwi. Both are 100% juice, and both are delicious. I was fortunate to receive a sample of each to review.

The Pomegranate Kiwi is a unique blend - both fruits tend to have some sharpness to them, and the pomegranate both complimented the kiwi's citrusy character and accented its strawberryish character. The result was something totally new and unexpected, because the flavors merge so well that they don't really taste like pomegranate or kiwi so much as they taste fruity, tart, and excitingly different. My wife Maryanne likes it with breakfast; I think it would be aces in a cocktail with vodka or perhaps a white rum.

The Pomegranate Nectarine is marvelous. As soon as the bottle is opened, the perfumy sweetness of ripe, juicy nectarines greets the nose and that promise is easily fulfilled with the very first sip. All of the best aspects of nectarine juice step forward, enhanced and well-balanced with pomegranate's flavorful tartness. Could this be a new favorite, pushing out former champion Pomegranate Blueberry? Perhaps not, but we'll certainly have it side-by-side in the fridge.

Janny Chou, the POM Blogger, tells me that POM Kiwi and POM Nectarine will be in stores by the end of the month. I'm looking forward to it.
