Fact: Summer and watermelon go hand in hand, like peanut butter and jam, or Ikea and Allen keys. There’s just something about watermelon that makes it the perfect summer food—whether you’re enjoying a cool slice after a long day in the sun, snacking on a few watermelon skewers with dinner or sipping a refreshing glass of watermelon raspberry iced tea by the pool. When hot weather season rolls around, we can’t help but catch a little watermelon fever—which may explain why we love these “watermelon” fruit jellies so much!
