    At $4 a bottle, it seems a little steep, but I guess it's pretty good for you.

    I mix it with home made lemonade. Voila, pink lemonade.

    (How's this Swank?)

    Holy crap $4 a bottle! I think my fiance and I are going to have a little talk. She drinks that stuff all the time. That's gotta be seriously cutting into my beer fund.

    My wife wanted me to get some at the store the other day, I saw how much it cost and I "forgot" to get it.

    I just don't see how it can be that much better for you than any other fruit juice.

    Esp when you consider that you can buy a gallon of expensive orange juice for what that one bottle cost.

    Supposedly the best drink vitamin wise in the world.

    Yes it's big bucks. But it sure is good.

    You can buy it over the internet, but it's not any cheaper.

    haven't had it yet, but might get some next time I see it.
    I recall seeing an ad in the costco magazine -- if I see it there, I'll pick some up.

    Family drink = Brandy/Pomegranate, probably 50/50.

    Grandparents had an orchard; used to pick/squeeze them for juice every fall.

    Awesome stuff.

    yeah several people at my work are drinking it! We rag on them because it cost sooo much! Bi-LO grocery stores had it on sale this week for $1.99 and they were buying extra. our fridge at work probably has 10-12 bottles in it. Yeah add that $ up in juice good grief!

    I bought some at Costco this weekend. They have a 4-pack of Pom for $10.50. Works out to about $2.62 per 16oz bottle.

    It's pretty good. Kind of like a very good grape juice crossed with something tart, like cranberry, but not quite that tart...

    It was good straight, but in a tall glass with a lot of crushed ice and some vanilla vodka -- WOW!

    That said...at $2.62 a bottle...I can't see myself buying too much of this stuff.

    Never heard of it, and yes it is damn expensive. But, how many here drink some import or microbrew beer here that costs that much and nobody complains? I love my beer (half-drunk now btw) but don't see much difference in it. As long as whoever is buying it isn't on foodstamps... Better not start a rant!

    Doug, being a San Juaquin Valley guy (where much of my family hails from), you might try my family drink this fall. Brandy/Pomegranate. It just fits on a cold November evening when the leaves are off the trees. But use the straight juice, not the blend.
