I am a huge fan of POM iced tea drinks. I never really got into the POM pomegranate juice (although I do enjoy a messy pomegranate from time to time), but when their iced teas came out, I went and tried each of their 4 flavors, preferring the pomegranate lychee green tea and the pomegranate peach white tea. I even kept the glasses to use as water glasses (they really are too cute to toss). But, then, I started having too many glasses and the teas weren’t that cheap, even on sale. I also became conscious of the sugar and calorie content (140 calories in each glass). I still drink out of my POM tea glasses, but I stopped purchasing new ones.
Imagine my mixed feelings when I found out (via Hungry Girl) that POM has come out with light tea drinks! The light teas have half as many calories as the regular teas and come in 3 yummy sounding flavors (although, why couldn’t they just lighten their existing flavors?). The site also has very cool flash pictures that show a refreshing glass of tea with condensation dripping down the side. So, I am happy that there is a light version of these tasty teas, but I am concerned because if I bring home any more of these reuseable glasses I will have to start getting rid of the regular drinking glasses. What is a girl to do?
