Drink Review: POMx Iced Coffees

When you think of coffee, do you think healthy?  Well the folks over at POM Wonderful do.  Why is their iced coffee healthy?  Well it’s due to their special ingredient POMx.  Here is their story:

POM Iced Coffees

POMx Iced Coffee has something you won’t find in any other coffee beverage.  Is super-ingredient, POMx, a super-pure, super-concentrated, 100% natural blend of polyphenol antioxidents loaded with all the health benefits of POM Wonderful pomegranates.  That’s right.  While you’re busy getting your buzz on, you’re also getting your daily dose of anioxidants, which is equivalent to drinking an 8 oz. glass of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice, the standard daily consumption in our medical studies on cardiovascular and prostate health.  And that’s most POMxcellent.

In order to stay within their ingredient standards, POMx coffee is made with only shade-grown beans, rBST-Free milk and organic cane sugar.   Visit their healthybuzz site to learn more about their ingredients.

POMx Iced Coffee comes in three flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla and Café au Lait.

POM Chocolate

POMx Iced Coffee Chocolate is my favorite out of the three flavors.  I’m not normally crazy about chocolatey coffee, but this is like drinking chocolate milk with just a hint of coffee flavoring.  The coffee is blended with rich and creamy  fat-free milk and chocolate for a “velvety” mocha taste.

Our Chocolate flavor is more than mocha-licious. It’s also made with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Arabica beans and guilt-free, fat-free milk.

POM Vanilla

The Vanilla Iced Coffee is the newest flavor at POMx and my least favorite of the three.   Not as creamy as the Cafe au lait, and not a strong vanilla flavor.  It actually kind of reminded me of the taste of the Carnation powdered milk.  Still good, but not a choice I would pick very often.

Our Vanilla flavor is the new bean on the coffee scene. Made with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Arabica beans, fat-free milk and organic cane sugar.

POM Cafe au Lait

The Café au Lait is the smoothest POMx flavor and is my second favorite.  This iced coffee, in my opinion, has just the right amount of sweetness.  No overwhelming flavors to take off,  just a great creamy coffee taste.

Our Café au Lait flavor is coffee at its creamiest. Made with a delicious blend of ethically sourced, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Arabica beans and reduced-fat milk.

Thank you to the nice people at POM for providing the 3 drinks (10.5 oz bottles) for GrubGrade to sample.  I know this isn’t exactly the time of year to be thinking about Iced Coffee, most of us want something to warm us up.  But, when the weather warms and you need a little boost of caffeine (175 mg per bottle), give the POMx coffee brands a try.
