“The Melting Pot’s Skinny Dipping menu is perfect for those who set resolutions to eat healthier in the new year,” said Shane Schaibly, Corporate Chef for Front Burner Brands, restaurant management company for The Melting Pot. “While a restaurant entrée under 700 calories is typically considered light, Skinny Dipping at The Melting Pot offers a three-course meal for that same caloric value.”

The Skinny Dipping experience comes to a sweet ending with dark chocolate fondue (322 calories) served with ripe bananas, sweet pineapple chunks and strawberries for dipping.
