I went through pure hell to do this Tasting. I was clawing and scratching my way to the freezer to salvage but one just Edy’s Pomegrante Fruit Bar. My teenage son was obscenely greedy with these treats (as he is with all the damn food) and I’m FRACKIN’ TIRED OF IT!
Sorry for all the yelling, but it really does piss me off.
But wait. My Pissed-Off-O-Meter just hit sky high when I finally tasted the Bar. The quality is there. The tasty-taste is there. But the flavor? It’s having a daggone identity crisis.
It wants to taste like Pom, but it doesn’t. It wants to NOT be infused with elderberry and black currant juices so it can take pride in being 100% Pom, but it can’t do that either.
If I was gnawing on this thing blindfolded I would have guessed cherry flavor. The closest taste to Pomegrante, in my opinion, is cranberry juice, but it didn’t even taste like that.
Edy’s Fruit Bars are the best, but I expect my food to taste like the flavor advertised on the box. So, ya. I’m bitching about it.

REACTIONS FROM THE TASTE TEST CREW
Health-hater Husband: I don’t want it.
Greedy Kid #2: I love these. They’re better than Edy’s Strawberry Bars because they don’t have fruit chunks.
Yum UP! to: Edy’s Strawberry Fruit Bars. Sink your teeth into THAT one.
Yuck Down to: My greedy-azz son. He needs to get 3 jobs to pay for groceries and send me to the feet-massaging spa.
