POMx Iced Coffee



When I was contacted to sample the POM new product, Iced Coffee, I was delighted and curious at the same time. Curious as in how would a coffee with POMx added in tasted like. POMx is a potent antioxidant rich extract from POM Wonderful pomegranates. This iced coffee is best suited for people who needed a coffee or caffeine boost everyday and yet wanted it to be healthier, like packed with antioxidants for example.

POMx Iced Coffee combined a potent antioxidant rich extract from pomegranates, Rainforest Alliance Certified shade-grown Arabica coffee beans, rBST growth hormone-free milk and organic cane sugar. It came in three wonderful flavors, Chocolate (fat-free), Cafe au Lait and Vanilla. It is either fat-free (yes 0% fat) or low-fat and preservative free.


Can you imagine your cup of morning coffee to deliver a "Healthy Buzz" of energy? With 650mg dose of polyphenol antioxidants from pomegranates (more potent than those found in red wine, green tea, grape and acai extracts) and 175mg of high caffeine-content for extreme energy boost. And it was made with premium, all-natural ingredients to give you a healthy buzz. The POMx Iced Coffee Chocolate is a deliciously rich coffee with chocolate flavor (what's best is it is fat-free). I couldn't taste the POMx at all which is a good thing. LOL! Evy even said it tasted a lot like the coffee at Starbuck. What best to kick start your day than with a glass of this powerful and antioxidant rich coffee?

Dhanggit, I love the cute bottles too. I think it's great when we are driving long distant and need a cold coffee to wake us up.

Anon, the chocolate has 30gm of sugar and the cafe au Lait only has 20gm of sugar, not 40gm like you mentioned. It's a choice for people who like bottled coffee on the go. This has high dose of antioxidant and low/zero fat and less sugar in a bottle compared to other brands. This type of coffee doesn't taste good without sugar. Perhaps it's not for people who are watching their diets. Maybe you can write to them and suggest a low carb version. Thanks for your comment.

i had this product last year when they were distributing it for free in the streets of los angeles. as a coffee lover, i think it really lacked that coffee flavor. it tasted like ensure, a drink my mom used to make me drink to put on weight

i don't think it's a good substitute for coffee

Anon, I like the Chocolate POMx iced coffee, it's good in a hot day (I can taste the rich coffee and chocolate, like mocha) and I received lots of antioxidant from it. The cafe au Lait is not sweet enough for me, only 20gm of sugar. Have not tried Vanilla so no comment on that. I think it's a niche market that target on specific group of coffee drinkers that prefer coffee bottle on the go with high caffeine kick and health benefit at the same time (with no weight/health issue to consider also).
