Japanese brand Be Legend, which continues to drop flavor after flavor this year, similar to what it did in 2020, has another one this week following the two it dropped on the 7th to celebrate Japan’s Star Festival. The latest from the brand is once again another option for its flagship, whey protein powder, and while it doesn’t have any kind of special edition theme, it is unique.

The flavor Be Legend has put together to go with the sunny Summer season is Watermelon, providing 21g of protein per serving, 3g of carbohydrates, 200mg of sugar, 1.8g of fat, and 120 calories. To make the seemingly simple Watermelon protein powder unique, the brand has included seeds, similar to real watermelon, to authenticate the taste and texture of the flavor.

Be Legend hasn’t put actual watermelon seeds in its Watermelon whey protein; it has cacao nibs, which are intended to reproduce the texture and appearance of the seeds, but of course, not the taste. The product has launched this week through the brand’s retail partner Real Style at ¥3,200 (29.12 USD) for a 1kg bag, and it is only going to be around for a limited time.
