Review | POM Wonderful | New Flavour

POM Wonderful

Pomegranate & Cloudy Apple

I was already a fan of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, so was delighted to be offered the opportunity to review* the new flavour: Pomegranate & Cloudy Apple!

POM Pomwonderful Pomegranate and Cloudy Apple Juice | Review

I usually try to make sure my reviews are not too ‘gushing’ and if there are points for improvement, I mention them.  In this case, I really can’t find anything I’d like to change about the product – other than perhaps I’d like a bottomless bottle! 😉

Pomegranate juice has a particular taste that perhaps doesn’t appeal to everyone.  It manages to be at once crisp while also being deliciously sweet.  It’s this combination that gives it its great thirst-quenching taste.

Additionally, pomegranates are full of goodness and POM Wonderful juices are made from 100% fruit concentrates with no added sugar.

You can see in the photo above that the cloudiness from the cloudy apple juice added to this new variety comes through in the blended juice.  The cloudy apple juice adds an extra flavour dimension / more depth to the juice.

POM Wonderful really is wonderful; crisp, sweet, thirst-quenching.  I can’t say anything further about it.

This new Pomegranate & Cloudy Apple flavour is currently available from Tesco, RSP 3.56 for 710ml bottle.

Eating Out Review | CaféMed at the Market | Doncaster Market

Delicious Mediterranean flavours

Earlier this week, I met the lovely James Wheeliker, owner of CaféMed at the Market, when he attended one of my Social Media Marketing workshops (from a social media marketing point of view, I hope to see a proper facebook business page for this business, soon! 😉 )

As a lover of mediterranean food and all things fish & seafood, as soon as I met James and found out about his delightful CaféMed, I knew I had to try it!

I went to Doncaster Market today to buy pork meat and sausage casings from Ben Marshall Butchers to make some Sardinian Sausages and some Lincolnshire Sausages (more about these once I’ve made them!), so decided to treat myself and my daughters to some mediterranean flavours for lunch.

CaféMed is in the middle of the International Food Market area of Doncaster Market and makes excellent use of the small space it is situated in by having a worktop spanning 2 sides, with comfy barstools inside and outside, as well as some lovely mediterranean-style round tables inside the Café space.

We got there at around 1.30pm and the place was bustling with activity.  Lots of people enjoying a glass or bottle of wine at a leisurely pace, along with their abundance of scrumptious mediterranean delicacies. The menu features a variety of seafood- and meat-based dishes from France, Spain and Portugal, and their menu states they’re always happy to cater to vegetarians, too, so there is something for everyone.

I had the Catalan Mussels (see above), which were delicious, with a rich sauce infused with paprika flavours and just a hint of heat; the sauce could have been a soup in its own right and there was plenty of bread to dunk into it!

My eldest daughter had the Bifana; this is a Portuguese dish I wasn’t familiar with but that certainly went down a treat.  Not one, but two pork chops with a rich savoury flavour including a nice gentle kick provided by the presence of chilli flakes, deliciously sweet chunky fried onions, roast potatoes oozing with herby flavours and a lovely fresh side salad.

Last, but by no means least, my youngest daughter had the Moules Marinières.  These were worthy of any restaurant or café in France!  Absolutely delicious! In fact, by the end of the meal, all three of us were dunking bread into her bowl of creamy sauce and even eating spoonfuls of it on its own! The quality of the mussels in both mussel dishes was outstanding, too.

CaféMed at the Market is not a luxurious high-end restaurant, but it is a gem tucked away inside Doncaster Market for anyone who loves delicious simple food and mediterranean flavours.  It offers great value for money (£30 for 3 of us, including soft drinks and as much bread as we could eat!) and all the staff are very friendly and helpful.  Service was great even at the busiest time (it quietened down by the time we finished our meal) and it was a pleasure to eat there.

I’ll certainly be visiting again!
