POM tour day 2. An OVERWELMING experience!


It was an AMAZING experience we just had! I can’t describe how many surprises we got so far… everyone feels so spoiled by POM people! They’re so kind, so thoughtful on every single detail… I have no doubt they’ll success on whatever they do, because the most valuable asset of a company is the people and POM has the best!

7 AM a continental breakfast. We had a big selection of yummy food to choose from

nobody could believe what we were “living”! Although some of us was skeptical/worry about flying over in a small jet, the excitement overcame that easily! A lot of photos shuts obviously πŸ˜‰

It was an awesome experience! I were flying just 400 feet above ground… the best view to the whole plantation.

Then we had a quick lunch

dessert was the original bar

most of the people like PB flavor, I personally like more the original one because it is so unique to have POM flavor in a bar. It’s a little bit high in sugar (22g/bar), but even for someone who doesn’t have a sweet tooth like me didn’t feel it too sweet. I like it, specially the dark chocolate coating! πŸ˜‰

Our next stop was the Orchard

a 101 on how to open an pomegranate

step 1: Cut off the top about a 1/2 inch below the crown

step 2: score. Once the top is off, you’ll see four to six sections. With the knife point, score the skin at each section.

step 3: open. Separate the pomegranate at each score.

Now we’re having some rest time. I’m tired but really really happy!!! I feel soooo lucky to be here! πŸ˜€
