I have found the future of successful dieting — and it’s not in counting carbs. It involves chocolate, and a lot of it. Everywhere. I’ve just finished burning Cucina’s new Fruit & Passion scented wax slab, a beautifully scented fake ‘chocolate’ bar that comes with what looks like a tiny fondue pot. Break off a piece of the wax ‘chocolate,’ light a tiny tea light underneath, and the rich, warm wax melts and leaves your home smelling like a chocolate factory. If you’re not a chocolate fan, the company has also created a wonderful candle line of warm, sweet foody scents. The candles burn long and clean, and my apartment smells like an abode worthy of a gourmet cook, without the the calories.
My nose (and my thighs) are grateful.
