Refreshing, light, nice alternative to soda -- from a company with a conscience!

This review focuses on the pomegranate and grapefruit flavors of Izze.

Izze's all natural sparkling juice is a nice alternative to soda. There is no caffeine, no processed sugar, and no unnatural ingredients. It is refreshing to read the ingredients and find that I recognize every ingredient! And they are all safe!

The pomegranate juice is mixed in with a bit of grape and apple juice, to mitigate a mild (but not unpleasant) bitter citrus aftertaste, somewhat like grapefruit juice. The sparkle has a feel closer to sparkling water than to carbonated soda -- and I like that. It is a distinctive flavor -- and I like that too. I wasn't sure what to think after just one can, but after trying it a couple of times I have found that it is quite nice.

I liked the ruby red grapefruit flavor all at once -- it has the perfect grapefruit flavor, the sweet tangy delicious zing, without the bitter aftertaste of grapefruit. It is not too sweet, but just right for that grapefruit flavor fix that I like now and again. This is the perfect size container, especially for my kids who also love the grapefruit flavor. Good stuff.

What I also like is that Izze appears to be a company with a conscience. Started by a couple of friends in 2003 who liked the idea of an all natural and distinctive beverage as an alternative to soda, Izze uses their product as a platform from which to promote awareness of the Global Education Fund (and other good causes, both environmental and global) that they support.

I've enjoyed Izze drinks in the past and for the past year and a half have been drinking pomegranate juice whenever I get the chance. When I learned about Izze's FORTIFIED ALL NATURAL SPARKLING POMEGRANATE JUICE, I was rather excited at the prospect of tasting some. I was rather disappointed. To begin with, even though this product is labeled as pomegranate juice, it's a misnomer because this is not real pomegranate juice. Instead it's a hybrid containing juices from concentrates of apples, white …

I received a case of this sparkling pomegranate juice and suggested that several members of my family (pre-teens, teens, and adults) try it. Depending on the particular tastes of each individual, ratings went from 3 to 5 stars.    This is a satisfying and nutritious alternative to soda, especially during the warmer months of the year. Members of my family agree: this is a product we would buy.

The Izze all natural Pomegranate drink is a great idea. A Natural drink with no artificial sweeteners or even refined sugar. Best of all, no corn syrup. It sounds like a nice healthy drink, right? Well, the reality is that it just didn't taste very good to me. And, although it claims to have 70 percent juice... most of the juice isn't Pomegranate juice.     Here's the rundown:    Pros:     -All Natural  -No refined sugar or corn …

Izze is a great concept, especially as this is one soda that is actually a little healthier than the usual carbonated beverages. I ordered the Pomegranate and Grapefruit and preferred the latter much more.    Pomegranate: I love Pomegranate juices like Pom and other organic alternatives available [...] as it is a very heart healthy drink. However, despite my liking for the tart taste, the Izze pomegranate juice in cans has a slightly bitter after taste and does not taste as good …

IZZE All Natural Sparkling Juice, Pomegranate    Great Taste    Amos Lassen    I just finished drinking my second can of Izze Sparkling Pomegranate Juice and I must say that it is one of the best juices I have ever had. It is a refreshing fruit soda which has a slight sweet/sour taste. Made from 70% fruit juice and added vitamins, it gives you just the right little kick. It is light and the carbonation does not overwhelm.

Izze All Natural Sparkling Pomegranate Juice is a nice alternative to the normal breeds of soda such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper. It doesn't compare, however, to sodas that it will probably have more direct competition from such as Sunkist, the numerous Fanta flavors and others. Why? Because when most folks want a soda, they want a sugar-laden treat that'll give them a little spark. This is soda for folks who care a bit more about their health than the average joe. It's also a good choice …

Izze Sparkling Pomegranate is not too sweet, but it is just as refreshing and fun as sugary soft drinks. The cans are small and stylish, perfect for carrying in your purse or backpack. Kids like it, and the smaller size makes it a more sensible serving.  The company is ecologically and socially responsible, too.  What's more, this flavor is very nice with a touch of Cointreau for a sophisticated and festive cocktail.  An excellent alternative to sodas.
