Lately, my addiction and craving has been for all things pomegranate. I’ve loved the fruit for years, but really got hooked on it in California. I have been happy that so many companies are hopping on the Pom bandwagon, and introducing delicious pom products. I love the Crystal Light Immunity cherry pomegranate single-serving mix-ins. I always keep a few in my carry-on bag to drink when I’m flying. I tried the pom Orbit gum, and love that it has a true pom flavor, not some kind of odd minty-pom like some of their fruit flavors. And this week I found Pom Jelly Belly beans. They are made with pom concentrate, and if you eat 35 beans, you’ve reached your necessary allowance of vitamin C.
I wish that the fruit weren’t so expensive to purchase. The seeds from one fruit are quite filling, and Rosie and I share them and get our fill. We shared one over Thanksgiving and enjoyed it for two days. Pomegranates may not be the superfruit that blueberries are, but they are tasty and full of anti-oxidants. I want one like crazy right now, and I’m just waiting for Randazzo’s to open so I can pick up a few.
