POM POMs Fresh Arils Review
POM Wonderful recently gave a few bloggers the opportunity to try out their new POM POMs Fresh Arils. Mine arrived just in time for Christmas weekend. They were a delicious addition to our family meals, and were great conversation starter throughout the weekend.
The POM POMs Fresh Arils are available nationwide now through February. At the end of this article is a link to get a $1.00 off your next purchase of POM POMs Fresh Arils!
Pomegranates are a favorite food in our house and we look forward to pomegranate season every year, only thing is it takes a little bit of effort to break the fruit down to enjoy. POM Wonderful has made it even easier to enjoy the 100% California-grown antioxdiant packed pomegranate arils at home or on the go. Check to see if your favorite store has them!
When I first looked at the package I squealed that even the lid was shaped like a pomegranate! (Totally plan on turning the lids into an ornament for the tree next year.) I read on POM’s Facebook there was a collapsible spoon inside, which I was anxious to see. The lid states there’s a spoon included. Our oldest daughter was absolutely fascinated with the spoon and had to use it at every opportunity. The spoon was easy to open, fold into position, close and replace the multiple times we used it.
“The Sprinkles You Can Have Every Day”
The first meal we had the POM POMs with was breakfast. We made oatmeal and each of us made up our own bowls. Since it was the day before Christmas, our girls wanted green sprinkles (that we had leftover from cookie baking.) We compromised and suggested they add the red pomegranates to make their oatmeal even MORE festive – much healthier than sugar ones. These are sprinkles you can have every day!
Throughout the day Saturday we snacked on the arils between meals, had with lunch and saved the rest for Christmas Day Brunch.
Sprinkle in your Drink
Dave and I served mimosas with brunch and I thought, ‘why not add a spoonful of the POM POMs to my drink? Perhaps a bit of the juice in the glass?’ In the name of all things food, I took a chance. While we talked about the POM POMs, we passed them around and the girls sprinkled them on their pancakes, snacked on them, here’s what happened to my drink.
Check it out – a POM Sunrise! We weren’t sure if the juice would sink or just mix in, but the longer the drink sat, the clearer the line became.
Perfect Ending to a Meal
We were going to serve the POM POMs with chocolate mousse, but then I remembered I had some pumpkin bars in our freezer that we could serve instead of making a whole new dessert. (Our families are big into baking, and were bringing leftover pie and cookies from Christmas Eve dinner anyway.) One of the first recipes I blogged about was Pumpkin Bars with Pomegranate Arils. I thought how fitting it was to revisit a family recipe we made in Florida, and could now share a couple years later at during our first Christmas back in Pittsburgh! It was a total hit!
The POM POMs Fresh Arils are a great healthy snack out of the uniquely designed package. Try it alongside some of your favorite foods for a delicious, healthy and tangy burst of color!
