147 Days ’til 40: Chocolate Soap

27 Sep


Yes, I know, this is another one of those silly topics – but sometimes silly is okay.  Life can’t always be about the serious.  Today I took a shower with chocolate soap.  Yes, I am serious – chocolate soap.  Does this make you wonder????

What exactly IS chocolate soap?  No, no NO it is not some inappropriate shower toy meant for two.  It is actually chocolate SOAP – that you wash yourself with.  Nothing kinky about it – it just IS.  When I first saw chocolate soap I was not a believer.  I wondered who on earth wanted to make soap in a chocolate scent…. ridiculous.  But, not so ridiculous that I did not pick it up and smell it.  It DID smell like chocolate, in a sort of soapy way – not a bad soapy way, a good soapy way.  Next thing I knew, I was propelled towards the check-out counter with my bar of chocolate soap, imported from France.  And, today I used that soap…….  it did smell like a light scent of chocolate as I showered……. and, you know what????

I liked it.

    If mango and roses make good soap smells, why not chocolate?

      Well, my house can be full of pmsing women anyhow… but no extra stalkers due to the soap! 😛

    Cacao nibs are also rather mind-blowing. You eat them..but they feel so clean and wonderful compared to a Hershey bar. Milk chocolate has so much sugar and dairy in it..but the real cacao..that stuff is amazing!

    kinda sounds like a katy perry remix… 😉 I have tried chocolate lotion and went around smelling like a hint of chocolate kisses.. it was fun. I have a similar feeling about lavender candies..its just the other way around.. Choward’s Violet are delicious if you have never tried

          I love bath and body – I have to stay away, I spend too much there!

    Heh, I actually know how you feel, I had a similar experience with a couple of strangely nice scented/laced/infused soaps about a year and some ago. Was in Thailand with the family and there was a single shop that was just an insane amount and variety of soap types and while I’m hardly picky about such things, I’ll admit there was some intriguing stuff in there and some of it was nice (like the choco) and some was good (like the skin-friendly natural/herbal/etc).

      Ooooh – makes me want to head to Thailand just to find the store! (Okay, maybe to have the cultural experience too!!!) 🙂

    I was always very tempted by the idea of getting chocolate soap, but thing is I am so worried that part way through my shower, I will take a bite out of the soap bar thinking it is truly a chocolate bar! It’s wrong…it’s wrong!!! Hahaha!

    • 400daystil40

      September 27, 2012 at 21:12

      hehehe! I must say, I will be buying it again! 🙂

    I have been using chocolate body scrub for years … just love it. And my bathroom smells gorgeous from chocolate for the full day. It’s so lush .. never tried soap.

    if bathing with chocolate soap would stop me from eating chocolate, I’d switch soaps

    I had a chocolate bath too, I think it’s from London or one of the countries around that area. It’s like pouring melting chocolate all over my body! I know this is stupid but I’m more curious than cats, if not better. I tasted it hahaha! Well it tastes like normal body gel/foam. But smells and looks like choc!!!!!

    I thought it was just me, but I use chocolate shower cream and let me tell you, a wanna take a bite at myself afterwards, that’s how sweet I smell and feel 😀

      hehehe! I am almost out of my chocolate soap and will be hunting down more when it is through!

        Have you ever tried The Body Shop, they really have chocolate soap from around Christmas time. I used to work there, so I know, and boy my bathroom had no space for anything more I could buy or grab from the return bin 😀

          I have to stay away from that place – can make me go broke!

            I know, I used to buy so much stuff, had no place to put, but loved how I felt using them
