A spa in London seduces its customers and their sweethearts with a creamy, sweet chocolate pedicure in a cleopatra-like cocoa bath on Valentine's Day.

A spa in London is offering a one-hour hot chocolate pedicure on Valentine's Day. Staff say the treatment gives feet a creamy feeling and sweet taste, preparing customers for the most romantic day of the year.

STORY:

Cleopatra used to take her bath in ass's milk.

Now stressed-out sweethearts in London are taking things one step further and treating their feet in hot chocolate.

The Bliss Spa is seducing customers and their partners with a creamy-sweet double chocolate pedicure, in the run up to Valentine's Day.

Customer Ashley Snell enjoyed her chocolate sensory experience.

(SOUNDBITE) ASHLEY SNELL, CUSTOMER, SAYING:

"It feels really smooth, very creamy. Very different from the other pedicures I've had. The smell is divine, it smells so nice."

While their feet luxuriate in a cocoa bath, customers can also treat their taste buds.

The pedicure costs about 100 dollars, and includes a relaxing soak, a sugar scrub from the knees down, and a foot massage.

(SOUNDBITE) SAMANTHA JONES, BLISS SHOP MANAGER, SAYING:

"The double chocolate pedicure at Bliss is meant to be both effective and very indulgent treat for the feet. One of our regular pedicures is a hot milk and almond pedicure and when we thought about it we thought adding chocolate to that is going to give you that sensory experience as well as the effectiveness of all of our basic products."

The spa says the one-hour treatment adds a unique twist to standard body peelings, facials, nail care and waxing.

Snell is hoping to receive a second chocolate pedicure from her boyfriend this weekend.

SOUNDBITE) ASHLEY SNELL, CUSTOMER, SAYING:

"I would feel really lucky if he bought this for me for Valentine's Day. I don't know what his plans are yet. Maybe I can convince him? But it would feel very special if he bought this for me. "

The spa hopes the tasty treat for the feet will get lovers in the mood for the perfect Valentine celebration.
