Melting Pot $100 Giveaway – CLOSED

Pin It PIN IT!

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!

That’s right friends, it’s time for another giveaway around these parts! And what better gift to give than a date night out with your hunny! (or bff, or mom or yourself!) I was contacted by the lovely folks at The Melting Pot a few weeks ago to try their new Skinny Dipping Menu. You get one salad, an entree and a dessert for under 700 calories! As a girl trying to get healthier (but still indulge) this was definitely right up my alley!

I love The Melting Pot, and not just because you can eat vats of cheese and chocolate and it’s totally acceptable. But, it holds a sentimental value to me. The Melting Pot in DC is where Elliot took me for dinner right after he popped the question!

And then it’s where we went for our one-year wedding anniversary dinner last year! Isn’t my hubs such a sentimental hunk?

Clearly, both of those events were celebrations so calories weren’t being counted. But this year, my hubby and I are really trying to get into the best shape of our lives so we were stoked to find some of our favorites on the skinny menu! I ordered the spinach salad with bacon shallot dressing (DIVINE) and the steak and shrimp entree. However, my favorite part was the dark chocolate fondue. It’s so simple BUT SO DELICIOUS. And I’m a woman so clearly chocolate is my weakness.

Yum! Overall, I really liked the menu. The portions were smaller, obviously, and you don’t get any of the cakes or cheesecakes to dip at the end. But, I still left satisfied and plenty full. Plus, you can always add the cheese. You won’t be under 700 calories but you don’t have to tell anyone! Another cool thing about the menu is they paired with one of my favorite vodkas, Voli, to create skinny cocktails to go with your meal!

I didn’t have one but they looked SO good. So, now onto the part y’all really care about….THE GIVEAWAY!

The super gracious folks at The Melting Pot have agreed to give one of you lucky people a $100 gift card! Talk about an awesome, stress-free date night right? The skinny menu is less expensive too so you can indulge in cheese or extra cocktails! To enter, simply fill out the prompts below! Giveaway ends Monday at midnight. GOOD LUCK!

    I can't get enough of cheese fondue. I'm so glad trader joe's stopped selling their microwave version- it was getting dangerous in my house. That, french bread, and wine were happening a little too often. :)

    I have to say I will always choose sweets, so chocolate fondue, although cheese fondue is really good, too!
