Melona is a South Korean melon-flavored ice pop, manufactured by the Binggrae Co. Ltd. Although the product is called "Melona" and is identified by its melon flavor, the ice pop also comes in other fruit flavors. Each 80 ml/2.7 fl oz bar contains 130 kcal of energy as of 2009.[1]

Popularity and availability[edit]

Melona broke many sales records after its 1992 introduction.[2] The product set the best selling record in the domestic ice pop market, selling 280 million bars in 1994, and has remained one of the steadiest sellers.[3]

Melona is generally sold in convenience stores in South Korea. According to data from Family Mart, Melona was its eighth most popular product sold in 2007.[4]

It can also be found in increasing numbers of stores around the world, including the United States, Australia, Brazil, Singapore, Paraguay, Philippines, China, Argentina and New Zealand, usually in Asian markets or Korean retail outlets only. As of 2011, Melona was sold in Canadian grocery stores.
