It started innocent enough, the produce manager was slicing a melon for another customer as I walked past and offered me a slice. It was a sweet explosion in my mouth. What are these melons? Sugar Kiss Cantaloupe from Arizona. I was hooked.
It is like the best summer fruit sweetness sensation in every bite. I am buying 2 at a time now, one that is ready immediately and one to sit on the counter. I have shared some with friends and neighbors.
Last week my store was out of Sugar Kiss. The produce guy thought they were promoting local and didn’t have the room for a week. I traveled 12 miles to one of their other stores to successfully buy two.
The other night I noticed my husband eating some slices as a snack. Now I am contemplating hiding my Sugar Kiss Cantaloupe. Yes I think I have developed an addiction!
Here are my rationalizations:
There are worse things to get hooked on
It is only $1.29 per pound
It is not that fattening (ignore the presumed high glycemic idex with all the sugar)
It will be gone in the fall
I am not thinking about my anxiety about not getting my daily Sugar Kiss right now. Now I am savoring the taste!
Have you ever fallen in love with the taste of a fruit? Have you ever become addicted to a fruit? Try the Sugar Kiss and join me in a sweet addiction!
