POM’s Away

The fine folks at POM Wonderful keep sending me samples of their pomegranate juice no matter what awful things I say about it. I give up, POM. I celebrate your tart, high-calorie goodness. No longer will I ever refer to your product as "purple urine". In fact, you've got me feeling like a song...

I'm sorry POM Wonderful and Gap Band

I couldn’t believe it, when I received it.
You sent free juice to me.
Lo and behold, it was still cold.

  1. I was really torn between the nutritional benefits of this wonder juice and the calories it contained. It's good stuff, but I still have a problem drinking that many calories.
    Love the song.
    Love it.

    Thank you
    Sean

  5. Love POM, but I, too, worry about the caloric content. It is tasty, so I'm often not able to resist.

    Great post....AGAIN!!

  6. If we eat pomegranate will we get as much benefit? I too have a hard time with juice. I grew up drinking 8-16 oz. as a serving.

    I do like the juice. And-well-women get other [hem hem] benefits from antioxidants.

  7. I have a HS Classmate who works for POM and he sent me a case. At first taste, it's a bit tart, but the 2nd and 3rd sips = damn's that's some good juice!

    Great song - thanks!

  14. Andrea@POM: Thanks for the creativity and making us smile! It's a huge victory for me that you don't consider POM "purple urine" any longer. I'd love to share with the POM Community, they'd LOVE this!

  15. OOhhh man, Jack! You've reminded me that POM sent me a case just before I left on vacation last week! LOL Forgot completely about it after tucking it away in the "drink frig". eep

    LOVE your song, too funny as always! ;)

  16. I have ALWAYS wanted to try that juice! I'm not stingy, in fact I'm quite irresponsible with my money, but I just can NOT bring myself to pay what they are asking for that juice. I just CAN'T do it. Can you have them send some free stuff MY way????

    ReplyDelete
  17. man, I just laughed out loud....yeah to the purple urine!
    lololol.
    Reminds me of the Icarly episode where the shoes she got for free to review caught on fire. So to keep her review positive, she roasted marshmallows over the shoes.
    I think you should do a bunch of highly questionable 'reviews' for the stuff.
    That would be hysterical.

  18. i have a hard time drinking my calories too, chewing is much more satisfying. if, however, ahem, some were to come my weigh, i mean WAY, i would definitely give them a shot.

    ReplyDelete
  19. WE LOVE IT!!! I agree with Jen above...where's your video? :) Love the song.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm with the others who would rather chew than drink calories. Much more satisfying. :) Chewing burns calories, too. Doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. You are too much!!!! I got some too & did a post. I mentioned the high calorie although a couple studies showed the juice can give you some bang for your buck, antioxidant wise. I just don't want to ingest that many calories in a little bottle of the stuff. I suggested if people ant to try it, maybe add a 1/4 of the bottle to smoothies or things like that.

  22. I bought one bottle of this, drank it, loved it, THEN bothered to read the calorie content....OMGOMGOMG....haven't bought another bottle since, lol.

  25. A truly snark-free comment!

    This was really, really funny. Like I do not usually laugh at a post, but this was really creative and funny.
    Like really funny!

    Well Played!
