Pomegranate tastes great too!! I don't drink it, however....I rarely drink fruit juice of any kind.

I've juiced a few before and added it to my fresh apple juice. It's good stuff but very time consuming to get all the seeds out of the fruit and through the juicer. Messy too....it stains stuff pretty bad. I'd rather have blueberries.
