Anthony said the idea came from school districts’ demand for aril products.

“We had a lot of requests from school lunch programs for arils,” he said.

The company designed a 4-ounce cup with a shaker lid so students can eat pomegranate arils easily, without the need for a spoon.

“We wanted to come up with a fun and easy way for kids to eat arils, so they can just shake this into their mouth and eat them,” Anthony said.

The product includes kid-friendly packaging with fun designs and information about pomegranates, according to Anthony.

He said he hopes children will eat the product at school and then request it at home.

“It’s certainly exciting to see school districts serving arils when they would normally just order apples or oranges. It’s a great sign for the produce industry in general,” he said.

I have been enjoying your pomegranate product for the past months. A little while ago you started to package it in a cup style container with a red top. The only problem is that you stamp the (sell by date) on the top of the red top and it is very difacalt to read it. I have to remove the red top and look at light in the background to be able to read the date. I love your product and I think this was a great idea, hope this suggestion will help.
