Japanese melon lovers can now relish their favourite fruit without worrying about wet-sticky fingers as snack manufacturer Ito Biscuits is offering what it has named Salt Watermelon Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These yummy cookies are made using real watermelon that gives them an authentic flavor and a pretty pinkish-red color, Rocket News 24 described them. Tiny chocolate chips added onto the cookies not only provide a delightful bit of sweetness but also look like watermelon seeds. Plus, the cookies also contain a subtle amount of salt that is meant to enhance the taste of watermelon and the sweetness of the chocolate.

According to a press release, the unexpected presentation of watermelon as a cookie has already attracted considerable attention from Japanese consumers and the treats promise to be a delightful surprise when tasted.

Fetch these cookies for 220 yen ($2) in stores and supermarkets across Japan.
