I Want To Go To There: The Hot Chocolate Pedicure

By: Jessica Wakeman / November 26, 2013

Chocolate, almonds, and cocoa powder sound like the makings of a decadent treat. And also a pedicure.  Oh, yes: the hot chocolate pedicure is here. Maria Bonita Salon, located in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, is offering an indulgent hot chocolate pedi. First, you soak your tootsies in cocoa, almond oils, and Dead Sea salts. Next your dead skin is sloughed off with a chocolate and almond exfoliating scrub. Then your feet are massaged with a combination of chocolate, almond oil, and vitamin E, topped off with a hot chocolate paraffin infusion. Unlike the hot chocolate at your local coffee shop which shouldn’t cost more than $3, the hot chocolate pedicure will set you back a whopping $40. While it’s decadent to be sure, it sounds like a misuse of perfectly good hot cocoa to me.  [Maria Bonita Salon] [Image of hot chocolate via Shutterstock]
