Another Perfect POM Giveaway!

PomPoms arilsOur fans LOVE their Pom Wonderful Pomegranates, so we arranged to hook you up with POM’s latest—PomPoms Arils (the juicy edible part)—already prepped and ready for snacking or cooking! Enter our Perfect POM Giveaway to win one of 10 PomPoms prize packs (a $45 value) today! 

It’s prime pomegranate season, and we hope you take advantage of them when you see them in the store. Pomegranate arils are the tart and sweet parts that most of us consider the “seeds” of the pomegranate (they are actually the seed casings—the little seeds are inside the red arils). Pomegranates contain fiber, potassium, vitamins and polyphenols aplenty. Plus, the novelty of a pomegranate is fun for kids and adults. But sometimes you just want to get to the arils already! If you’re not in the mood for painstakingly picking through the pomegranate, you can now reach for PomPoms (see the little cup above left). Those are PomPoms fresh arils, all ready for you when you need them. (I think this belongs in the “What took so long before someone thought of this?” file.) Look for PomPoms in the refrigerated, cut-fruit section of the supermarket.

Ok, so what can you do with PomPoms fresh arils? I have lots of ideas (and in fact, I use them a lot around holiday time). I freeze them in ice cube trays for festive drinks, I sprinkle them on salads, toss them into fruit salad, sprinkle them over granola for breakfast, mix them into a savory pilaf, or use them to garnish a dish like pork tenderloin with pomegranate sauce.  The POM Wonderful folks have lots of ideas on their website, as well as these quick ideas:Pomegranate salad

  • Hostess Gifts: perfect for the hectic hostess—tie a pretty bow around the container of fresh arils and go!
  • Add the sweet, tart taste of pomegranate to a savory entrée
  • Sprinkle them over a salad
  • Garnish festive holiday cocktails
  • Sprinkle over yogurt or ice cream
  • Enjoy as a crunchy, healthy snack straight from the package

  1. I like pomegranates added to salads and also in cookies

  2. Ok so i’ve haven’t tried Pomegranates in my adult life, but since it’s one of the 6 slimming foods on ur list, I’m going to HEB now and grabbing a few. How should i enjoy it?

  3. Martha frenz says:

    I love my sweets, but since trying to eat healthier I love to substitute natural sweets in place of processed sugars.

  4. I love pomegranates – so red and festive for the holidays! And POM is my favorite with the bright cheery gems of nutrition that go as a lovely topping on everything! I enjoy POMs the most on my lunch salads with turkey, avocado, apples, walnuts, pears and shredded cheese mixed in with baby spring mix and of course the gleaming RED POMs are the “cherries on top!” :)
    Also mix them in my Greek yogurt too for an extra sweet crunch!
    I like Appetite for Health on Facebook and I like PomPoms on Facebook and shared on my wall!

    Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!

  71. Jessica Bong says:

    I love Pomegranate, it’s my favorite fruit. I like picking them out at the supermarket and analyzing its rich reddish pink colored skin. When I bring it home and cut it into fourths, I enjoy being squirted everywhere with red juice. Then, I would simply peel off the yellow layers inside that reminds me if the touch and appearance of sulfur. At last, I have a bowl full of bright, fresh pomegranate arils and I scoop them right into my mouth. Tasting the sweet, sour natural taste of pomegranate. Delicious! I would also blend it in my fruit smoothies when I feel like I need a cool drink. Pomegranates are a part of my nutritious life. <3

  72. I think they’re wonderful just they way they are! I eat them plain :)

  87. I remember being introduced to pomegranites as a kid by a great aunt. I have been in love with the fruit ever since and am always excited for November and December to roll around. As an adult I chose to only buy Pom Wonderful because they are the best fruit. I eat them all by themselves..I dont add them to salad or anything. They are so perfect by themselves..They dont need a darn thing with them!!! I collect the arils in a bowl, grab a spoon and enjoy big juicy mouthfuls. It may sound funny but every time I eat one I suddenly relax, I believe it’s because they are just so enjoyable to eat! I am happy to share this contest on my facebook page ..who wouldnt love the prize!!

  88. I love Pomegranates in basically everything! They hydrate my and make me feel alive and happy and without them I would be very sad!
