    Melt proof would be "not melt in your mouth OR your hand". Melt resistant may be able to claim "Melt in your mouth, not in your hand."

    I grew up on a farm in eastern Washington state. I remember those large watermelons with the seeds and we did spit them out. Good memories for me. I and my brothers sold watermelons on the corner of road not far from our house and the big melons sold for 75 cents. But given the price of melons today and unless you have at least 3 kids and two adults in your family a big watermelon makes no sense and perhaps wasteful. Remember the bigger melons but welcome the small melon.

    Non-melting chocolate? Let me guess, they're going to add all kinds of processed ingredients that help to keep people wanting more than they should have and keep them fat forever.

    That melon has stretch marks.
