Watermelon is one of our favorite fruits, especially because it’s so hydrating. We eat it slice by slice to cool down on a summer’s day, and we’ve even mastered cutting a chilled melon into smaller, grab ‘n go sticks. It’s one of the most refreshing fruits and is easy to transport.
For a fun way to celebrate National Watermelon Day with your family or friends, enjoy some special, fruity cupcakes. It’s our new, favorite way to eat scrumptious red melons on a hot summer’s day.
