Reviewing POMx Iced Coffee

A few weeks ago I got an email from the marketing people at POM Wonderful. They’re rolling out a new product – POMx Iced Coffee – and they wanted to send us some samples to try.


The iced coffee drinks come in three flavors – Cafe au Lait, Chocolate and Vanilla. While the POM Wonderful products are known for their use of pomegranate, from what I gather, the iced coffee drinks contain all-natural, ultra-potent antioxidants derived from pomegranates… but there are no actual pomegranates and it tastes nothing like them.

I am a self-proclaimed iced coffee junkee. The only unfortunate part about my method of making iced coffee is that it has to be done overnight. If I’m sleepy and forget to get it started before bed, I’m out of luck. The thought of having a tasty and reliable ready-made alternative was pretty thrilling.

Unfortunately I didn’t love the POMx Iced Coffee drinks. I thought Cafe au Lait or Vanilla would be my favorites, but it was actually the Chocolate that had the least noticeable aftertaste. I don’t know what the extra taste was, but it was pretty off putting to me.


I tried using the Chocolate Iced Coffee in a brownie recipe and the taste was fine but didn’t knock my socks off. I also thought the packaging, while definitely different looking, wasn’t the easiest to transport with the rest of my things on my way to class.

Have any of you tried the POMx Iced Coffee products? I’d love to hear your take on it. I really wish I enjoyed the product more because they seem like a neat company! Check out POM’s Recipes page, for example.
