Pom-elicious tea time

I've had a thing for pomegranates since I was a girl. I won't say exactly how long ago that was, but trust me when I tell you it was way before "antioxidant" was a buzz word. Always a fan of the combination of sweet and tart flavors, I fell in love with the "jewel of winter" at first taste. Besides being delicious, the yummy, ruby-like seeds that are found deep within the thick, leathery skin are good for you.

Not in the mood to put forth the relative effort required to seed a pomegranate? Enjoy the flavor and the health benefits of poms and various teas with the delicious line of
pomegranate/tea beverages from Pom. I've tried all four flavors and they're all so good that it's impossible for me to pick a favorite. In fact, they're so good that you almost forget they cost $2.49 each. Almost. But I think they're worth every penny. I've spent more money on beverages that aren't nearly as tasty or healthful. These are good for you and they come in "keepsake glasses." Two good excuses to keep throwing 'em back...

This reminds me -- I was watching Rachel Ray this weekend, and she made a guacamole recipe that called for a drizzle of condensed pomegranate juice on the top. It looked AWESOME!

OMG, I *love* this stuff. Except where did you find them for $2.49? I seem to remember paying a lot more the last time I bought one...

I've seen them for $2.99, but Kroger has them (in the fruit fridge area) for $2.49.
