Better Than Viagra?

Guess what I got in the mail today? No, not some new mascara, but you like it don't you? I also didn't get a manual on exercises you can do for uneven eyes, but according to this picture, I need something like that.

Actually, Pom Wonderful, makers of the only brand of 100% authentic pomegranate juice, sent me a case of free samples (8-8 oz bottles) to try (this is the part of the blog where I am disclosing that I received something for free). They also sent some info on the history of pomegranate juice and the health benefits of said juice. Having never studied pomegranates and their magical powers in history class, this was all news to me. Here's what immediately caught my eye:
  • Those drinking 8 oz. of 100% pomegranate juice daily for four weeks were 50% more likely to experience erectile improvement. Thank God. My erections just aren't what they used to be.
But seriously, one of the main benefits of this juice is that hundreds of scientific tests also show POM to be a superior source of antioxidants, with more potent antioxidants than red wine, grape juice, blueberry juice, cranberry juice, green tea, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Yowza!


I am still sticking to red wine as a health drink, well, because I am a self described WINE-O and this gives me a darn good excuse. BTW, anyone ever drink blueberry juice? Anyone ever seen it? Am I missing something? It's not right by the Tropicana, that's for sure. Those poor souls who make blueberry juice must have the tiniest fingers in order to squeeze all those little berries.

Another advantage of POM? Big time friend of the cardiovascular system. Better blood flow (remember the erect penis?) and an overall decrease in arterial plaque.

The basic nutrition facts for an 8oz serving:

150 calories
520mg potassium
40g carbs
32g sugar


It packs a lot of stuff into that small bottle. And the price reflects that. I beleive a 16 oz bottle in the store is about $4.50.

Now about taste. This stuff is strong, but in a good way. Kind of like how Popeye is strong. Very concentrated. It actually does taste a little like wine to me, but I don't find myself hanging off chandeliers or streaking after I drink it. I enjoy the taste, but for some it might be over powering and take some getting used to. It starts out kind of sweet and ends with a tart finish.

Overall, I like the Pom Wonderful. I probably wouldn't drink it everyday because I'm not a big juice fan and it's too expensive. But it does boast some amazing health benefits and the bottles are pretty dang cute. I give it two erections thumbs up!

Drinking: Duh! Pom Wonderful. Didn't you read my blog?

  4. I love how the picture indicates wine is only 2nd to POM in antioxidants.

    I have yet to try it. It's so expen$ive and if I'm gonna spend money to drink something other than water it's gotta have alchol in it.

  5. I've seen those little bottles of POM in the store, but I've never thought to pick one up until about a month ago when I found a recipe for pomegranate poppy seed salad dressing. It is delicious salad dressing by the way! My kids don't get much juice but they loved it (diluted with some water of course) too!

  10. I haven't tried it yet, but it does sound good! I have seen blueberry juice...I think in the produce section and my market and it was also wicked expensive.

    p.s. I LOVE your blog...it always cracks me up!

  11. I'm not a big juice fan, either but I know POM is suppose to be so good for you. I'll stick with my water and wine!

  12. I love pomegranates - those little seeds are soooooo juicy. I actually have one sitting on the counter - just waiting for me. And I love the juice - well actually only with vodka. IMO - the best Cosmo's are made with pomegranate juice instead of cranberry juice. YUM!!!!

    Might make one tonight. ;-) and I LOVE red wine - but red always gets my hot flashes going - but what is a girl to do.

  13. Hmmm interesting... i generally like oyster juice smoothies for my erections, but ill have to try this!

  14. If it weren't for you I never would've tried Greek Yogurt. Addicted now. Seen POM all over, never tried. NOW might be the time. Better than Wheat Grass? I never did take the OJ chaser they offered after it. Sounds like the only chaser will be Ken after you drink it. What's next. Cialis and ShutUPandRun. And when DO they get out of that effing tub?

  15. doh! I keep forgetting to post a report on the stuffs that I received in the mail. Now, whether it is better than viagra....

  16. I like juice but not so much drinking calories! I'd rather eat the fruit whole. So I doubt I'll try it.

    Now I'll remember to tell hubbs about it's wonderful benefits...maybe over our weekend out of town. (oh yeah the kiddos are coming too. oh well)

  17. Didn't you know that Oopma Loopmas make blueberry juice? I guess their fingers ARE small (but if they were drinking POM juice, not everything would be small...)

  18. Penis, penis, penis, penis - you said penis...

  19. I have always been tempted to try this as well, but the price usually dissuades me. I will have to give it a shot.

  20. Can I just say that I love your blog b/c you oh so make me hysterical first thing in the morning! Hi-freakin-larious! I see the Pom Juice in the store as well, but prefer the wine.

  21. I forgot to leave a comment on your treadmill reenactment the other day...mostly because we had to watch it 3-4 times...and because when I watched it I had my 1 year old sitting in my lap...and Wow the cutest little belly laugh came out of him! (every time it finnished the little one said "more") Thanks for the hilarious post previous describing the incident...and thanks for the best belly laugh ever!

  23. POM does have a strong taste. I like to mix about 1/4 of a small bottle into protein drinks. I also like it for certain sauces.
    And I like it most when it comes for FREE to my house! :)

  24. Mmm I LOVE POM!!! It's definitely too expensive to buy all the time though.

  25. Just came across this blog this morning.... I am just getting back into running after a year of medical problems. I run my first 5k of the year tomorrow morning in St. Augustine, Florida. Agree on the POM! :)

  26. I love how you can make POM juice funny, you crack me up. My erections are lacking so maybe I'll try it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks for my daily giggle...

    I love this stuff but I'm too cheap to buy it regularly.

    (HEY POM< WANNA SEND ME SOME?)

    I's used it to make a salad vinaigrette, which is super yummy too!

  28. I am not original, I am an accountant, and contrary to popular belief, we are not the life of the party. With that being said, mix it with vodka and I am sure the streaking you experience with wine will be sure to follow! (like everyone already said - I'm a little late to the ShutUpAndRun party) And Trader Joe's sells blueberry juice (also good with vodka and also mentioned by someone else) and it is around the same price of their other juices even though I am sure the labor costs involved for paying the people to squeeze the tiny fruit is astronomical (that's the accountant talking again)!

  29. How the hell do you get all of this free shit? I never get free shit; I want some too!

    I've never tried POM, but I've heard good things about it.

    One thing that I learned while reading the 50 Marathons in 50 States book was that viagra was helped with endurance for people who live in high altitude places. So of course, I got online and started reading all this stuff about it and now I get all of these damn viagra spam...daily! My husband told me that I was stupid.

  30. I'm amazed that it says that on the packaging. How did they test that? Line up men and have them drink the juice? Did they have a control group? Was there a certain time period they measured to count as a success? I could go on. These are all questions inquiring minds want to know.

  31. Another thing you can do is to mix the POM with sparkling water.

    YUM

  32. I use it in my smoothies, pretty good stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh dude I LOVE that stuff, but I usualy cut mine with water since I drink all my juice that way

  34. Great service, easy transaction, discreet packaging, product works as expected. I received 132 pills instead of 120 + 10. My package was opened by US Border Patrol. Confirmation email showed discounted price for buy viagra. I called the toll free and spoke to an service representatice in Mumbai India. She was very helpful and pleasant.

  35. Need a catalyst to reach the height of the sex life….Try out Viagra sample to check its effectiveness. Free Viagra sample generally available with the physician or in certain online/offline drug stores for trial.
