"100% pure pressed grape, apple and pomegranate juice not from concentrate"
Although I normally opt for good old fashioned Orange Juice in the mornings, this week I decided to give Tropicana's 'Pomegranate Blend' a go. The drink in question is a morning juice which currently retails at £1.84 from Tesco for the one litre bottle. The juice is of the fresh variety rather than from a concentrate, and there is no sugar or water added. The text on the reverse of the carton is the normal overly descriptive and poetic account of how the product is made - apparently from "handpicked pomegranates ripened by natural rainfall and the warmth of the sun".

The drink contains;
Apple (31%), Red Grape (28%), White Grape (27%), and Pomegranate Juice (14%).
Appearance & Taste
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
The juice itself is a dark purple colour with a fresh and fruity aroma. Although the selection of fruits sounds delicious, actually, the taste isn't really that special - it's pleasant enough, but is a bit too sweet for my liking. Even though it makes up the highest percentage of the ingredients, the apple flavour isn't that noticeable, and only comes through as a subtle hint in the aftertaste. I would recommend drinking the juice chilled, as I accidently left it out of the fridge for a while, and it wasn't all that pleasant.

If you're looking for a healthy breakfast drink then Tropicana Pomegranate Blend may be for you. The all natural ingredient list is certainly good to see, although the combination of flavours didn't quite do it for me. The juice must be stored in the fridge, and used within five days of opening.
