You’ve probably never eaten melon with mayonnaise before. Well, we saw it being done by actress Erika Toda on the T.V. drama “SPEC” and thought we would give it a try. But seriously, melon with mayonnaise? Wouldn’t melon taste better as, well, simple melon?

In the drama, the heroine portrayed by Toda slices a melon, squeezes globs of mayonnaise on the fruit and eats the combination delightfully with a spoon. To find out if it really tastes good, one of our reporters tried the same combination, and to our surprise, discovered that the result is unexpectedly tasty! Wow!

The melon alone has quite a sweet flavor, but the slightly sour taste of mayonnaise apparently envelops the sweetness of the melon in just the right way; the strong flavor of the mayonnaise actually takes the sweetness of the melon to a whole new level! If you’re tired of plain old melon, this is certainly a new way of “upgrading” the taste of your melon.

Regardless of what your initial reaction to the idea may be, we highly recommend this mayonnaise and melon combination to our viewers. A word of advice: when trying this, don’t be stingy with the mayonnaise. To really enjoy the resulting flavor, add globs and globs of mayonnaise! We hope you have fun trying this unique fruit creation!
