I've mentioned a few times that I am not a coffee drinker. Recently though, I've found myself leaning more in that direction. And although I have been caffeine free for more than 30 years, I seem to need a little pick-me-up to get through the day. I was introduced to POMx Iced Coffee which seemed like the best solution for me. It's coffee with a kick, or as they say, with a "Healthy Buzz." POMx is made with Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee beans, hormone free milk, organic cane sugar; it's fat-free or low fat, and preservative free. It also includes the juice of pomegranates for all of those wonderful antioxidants that we've been hearing so much about.
I was lucky enough to be able to sample Chocolate POMx Iced Coffee and Café au Lait POMx Iced Coffee. I can honestly say, I wasn't aware of any health-drink flavor.
Of course, my favorite is the chocolate, but the café au lait was just as good. I don't recall get super charged and shaky like I usually do when I drink real coffee, but I did seem to have more energy and the overwhelming feeling of needing an afternoon nap wasn't there.
I think I'm on to something here. I hope you'll give it a try and let me know what you think. It's always nice to have some feedback from my readers.
