The Melting Pot Fondue of Foodies TweetUp

Miss Yunks has been wanting to go to The Melting Pot for a very long time – probably since it first opened in Natick, and more recently to the Boston location. There was just one small problem; no one else wanted to go!

Thanks to The Melting Pot’s Blogger event last night, Miss Yunks’ problem has been solved.

I was so excited to finally experience the Melting Pot’s cheese and chocolate fondues, drinks, and to meet other bloggers! I tried the cheeses first. There were several cheese fondues to try and little bowls of breads, carrots, celery, apples, and chips to dip. I tried each flavor fondue: Cheddar Cheese, Fiesta Cheese, Wisconsin Trio Cheese, Swiss Cheese, and Spinach & Artichoke dip. A-Tooch would’ve been in Cheese Heaven .

The Fiesta Cheese was my favorite. Spicy like salsa and creamy like cheese, it was the perfect blanket for my little pillows of bread. The plain Cheddar was delicious too – all of the cheeses were really delicious. The Spinach and Artichoke was really perfect but many restaurants serve their own version of spinach and artichoke dip. The Fiesta Cheese was my favorite unique fondue.

While tasting all the fondues, I also tried both the house red and the white sangrias. I’d never had white sangria before and wasn’t sure what to expect.

It was less sweet than the red sangria but still fruity. It tasted like a fruity white wine. I enjoyed it and would surely drink it again, but I preferred the red one.

We also were able to try 2 other special drinks. Representatives from Harvard’s Still River Winery gave out samples of Apple Ice Wine. They explained Ice Wine is made from cold grapes and the apple wine has 80 apples per bottle! It tasted like sweet apple juice with a kick. I would definitely drink this again! The Melting Pot also handed out samples of their blueberry lemonade in little glasses rimmed with sugar. I enjoyed the sugar; the drink was a little too strong for me, especially after two glasses of sangria.

We also had the opportunity to try the dessert fondues.

With each steaming hot pot of melty chocolate, there were dishes of brownie bites, strawberries, and rice krispy treats. Each item was delicious on its own and only made better by dipping in chocolate so hot you could really burn your mouth.

I tried every variety of dessert fondue: turtle, bananas foster, cookies & cream, pure dark chocolate, and original. My favorites were the cookies & cream; it had real pieces of oreos in it.

And the banana foster fondue was the most unique.


I was not-so-happily-surprised that the original fondue has peanuts in it. I’d re-name this one. The turtle fondue was a delicious mix of milk chocolate and pecans. The brownies were my favorite item to dip. The strawberries were perfectly ripe and juicy but some of the other food bloggers agree that fruit really isn’t dessert – it’s more of a snack!

I enjoyed tasting all that The Melting Pot has to offer but this event was more than just great food. This event put several Boston food bloggers together in one small room and it was so great to finally put some faces to the Twitter names I tweet with regularly and to learn more about everyone, beside what I read in their blogs!

Thanks to The Melting Pot for a great event! I can’t wait to go back and use my gift card!

    I went to the Melting Pot when it first opened in Natick- lots of fun, but totally didn't know that you cook your own food (if you do an entree) haha.

    Fun blog event!
