3 Reasons Why You Should Cheat On Your Diet Today

Chocolate, fruit, and chocolate dipped in fruit — need we say more? Oh right: free chocolate dipped in fruit. The summer is already halfway over (don't get us started!), so it's about that time to abandon your diet and give in to your sweet tooth. The brand-new sweets shop Forbidden Fruit just opened up in the West Village, and they're giving us reason to celebrate.
In honor of their debut, they'll be doling out complimentary tastings of their hand-dipped, drizzled-to-order chocolate-covered fruit all day. Plus, they'll be offering buy one, get one free on their entire selection of strawberries, pineapple crescents, berry boats, and oh so much more. In addition to your garden-variety milk chocolates, their delectable desserts come dipped in goodness like white chocolate, coconut, and almonds. Suddenly a beach body doesn't seem so worth it after all.
When: Thursday, July 12, from noon to 1 a.m.
