I finally decided to try pomegranate juice, to find out what all the fuss is about.
I was surprised and disappointed to discover that it tastes like grape juice. For $4.99 for 16 ounces, I was expecting something a lot more exotic. Grape juice is a prole juice. For half the price, sitting next to it was some freshly squeezed orange juice, which tastes much better. (If you’ve never had freshly squeezed orange juice, it’s almost like it’s made from a completely different fruit than the stuff that comes in cardboard containers.)
That’s the last time I’ll ever be buying pomegranate juice. What a ripoff.

I should also point out that 16 oz of pomegranate juice has 300 calories, so drinking too much pomegranate juice will make you fat.
