People On Twitter Are Disgusted By This Smoked Watermelon That Looks Like Ham

1 min


When it comes to disgusting food combinations, I thought I had seen it all. I mean, peanut butter and jelly hot dogs pretty much had me avoiding my favorite ballpark snack for a good two weeks–so, I didn’t think it could get much worse.
That was of course until I saw the latest viral food video sweeping the web that has put me off from my favorite cookout dessert–watermelon. A New York City based restaurant called “Ducks Eatery” apparently specializes in–what they refer to as–watermelon ham.

According to the restaurant, the chef smokes the watermelon for eight hours in order to get that crisp outside–and, then, lets it sit in spices for four days. That’s four days and eight hours to serve a watermelon.

Not only does it take a ridiculously long time, it’s also ridiculously expensive. I don’t know about you, but I prefer my watermelon to be reasonably priced and fresh, cold, and juicy–not smoked in spices.

Twitter is in agreement here that the “smoked watermelon” has got to go.

There you have it everyone–stick to smoking meat, not fruit.
