POM tea

Remember how I used some POM Wonderful juice to make some wicked tasty granola, and some muffins? Well the people at POM wonderful had a new treat for me to try, POM tea. This time I think I'm going to stick to just drinking the stuff :) no adding this into baked goods for me!


They sent me two flavors, pomegranate blackberry tea, and a light pomegranate wildberry white tea. (there are a ton of other flavor options too) The light tea only has 35 calories a serving... now that's what I'm talking about. I'm a "eat my calories" kind of girl. You can have your high calorie drinks all you want... me I just want to eat, I want my drinks to be low or no calorie (hence why I guzzle green tea from morning to night) YUM!

The light tea was refreshing and had a slight berry taste to it, nothing artificial or overpowering. Actually I wish it had a little more fruit flavor to it, it's a bit on the bland side. It has 9 sugars per serving, so it's not over the top, but I'd think it would have tasted sweeter with that number. I really like the idea though since straight up POM juice can be a bit overpowering to some, so this would be a great option for those kind of people. Get in those antioxidants in a mellower way!

I just tried the full on sugar version. It has 80 calories and 18 sugars per serving. (2 servings per 16 oz bottle) it has a lot more flavor than the light for sure! It's really good flavor and sweetness wise. I'm pretty glad I tried the low cal one first, because I think if I went the other way I really wouldn't have liked the low cal version. I say stick with the original for this one, and I totally recommend the pomegranate blackberry tea, YUM!

Do you drink a lot of your calories? Or are you an eat your calories person like me? :D

My family loves Pom teas and my youngest daughter loves to save the glasses.

I try to stick to low calorie drinks. I would rather eat my calories.

I'm definitely an eat your calories gal (unless there's wine involved of course)

I eat em all! Unless its spicy Tex Mex, then a cold beer from the tap is necessary.

I have a weak spot for chai and hot cocoa. I'm pretty sure it shows.

These sound good and refreshing. I mostly like to drink water and save my calories for chocolate ;) I make frequent exceptions for mocha frappuccinos, which probably have hundreds of calories. I'm kind of afraid to find out. :o

That white tea sounds delicious! I definitely eat my calories for the most part! I drink a lot of water... but during the summer, I get on an iced tea kick.

I love that I can agree with you on so many things... well except for exercising and being outdoors. I never feel motivated enough to exercise, but I'm improving a bit now.. I think. I'm eat my calories too. I'd rather eat an orange than drink orange juice. Whenever I drink pop or juice, it feels like a waste of calories. At the same time, I can't drink diet because the aftertaste really bothers me so it's usually water for me.
