Melona’s story began in 1992 with the creation of our iconic honeydew-flavored Melona bar.
At the time, honeydew was a relatively unknown and inaccessible fruit in Korea. Despite this, we were determined to bring this unique and delightful flavor to the masses, and so we experimented with it in our ice cream.
The result was Melona bars - unlike traditional fruit bars, which tend to be icy and hard, Melona has a creamy, gelato-like texture that sets it apart. Melona has a natural sweetness and a more authentic fruit flavor than other frozen treats. Our innovative technology allows it to be
Creamy and rich, yet incredibly light, with a refreshing aftertaste.
From the moment Melona hit the market, it became an instant hit, taking South Korea by storm and capturing the hearts of children and adults alike. Over the past 30 years, Melona has remained a beloved classic, with its taste remaining consistent throughout the years.
Why change something that is already perfect?
1995 was the year of Melona’s legendary dawn in Hawaii. Since then, Melona quickly became a household name in the state.
A decade later in 2016, the first US branch opened in San Francisco. We take pride to craft our bars, pints, mochi, and more in Washington with the finest quality ingredients available. As word spread of its delicious flavor and unique texture, more and more stores became eager to carry Melona. Melona bars alone account for 70% of all Korean ice cream sold in the US.
