Santa Claus what?

Have you ever heard of a Santa Claus Melon??
I hadn't before. I saw this little guy in the produce dept. the other day, and figured, with a name like that, I've just got to try it out.
aaahhh! Now I get it. It's snow-white interior (ok, maybe not snow white) is the reason for the name.

Ok, but how does it taste?

It's pretty good. It has a very subtle cantaloupe flavor with a hint of melon. Not quite the same flavor as a honeydew.

I would think a melon with a delicious jelly interior should be called a "Santa Claus Melon." Well, maybe they'll make a "Santa Claus Doughnut"...

Funny stuff.

I tried those too, they're pretty good! Hey, over on the Healthy Divas blog I'm trying out a new thing where we do a group challenge program. We are going to do it on healthy breakfasts and lunches. Check it out and see if you'd like to join in!
