What’s better than a cool, juicy wedge of fresh watermelon on a hot summer’s day? Two wedges!
Watermelon is called watermelon for a reason: It’s made up of 92% water, which goes a long way toward your daily recommended allotment of H2O.1
But watermelon isn’t all watered down – it’s a powerful antioxidant with high levels of Vitamin C and beta-carotene,2 so you and your family can enjoy this sweet treat all summer long, guilt free!
Before cutting into your next melon, try sticking it in the fridge for a few hours beforehand. It’s the perfect antidote for the hottest days ahead.
