Cozy up this season with the scent of Mountain Dew and Hawaiian Punch!
Candle season is here, and while we usually gravitate towards autumnal scents like apple cider or pumpkin spice, an online store is blowing our minds with their unique specialty: soda. scented. candles.
Yes, you read that right. 716 Candles Co. is the Etsy shop who makes them, and they're just as cool as they sound. Based in Buffalo, New York, they make candles that smell exactly like your favorite soft drinks, and the candles even come in a soda can holder. At $15 a pop (haha, get it?), they're available in 8-10-ounce sizes and have a burn time of 40 hours.
You can choose from up to 40 scents, including Coke, Pepsi, and Orange Crush. Frankly, we'd have a hard time picking one because they all sound heavenly. Their Dr. Pepper candle is a best-seller, and for good reason—one reviewer claimed it smells exactly like the Bonne Bell Lip Smackers flavor, which gave us an immediate flashback to middle school in the best way possible.
If you're not a fan of soda, you can also snag beer and booze-scented candles too, like PBR, New Belgium, and Jim Beam. Nothing screams the holidays quite like Jagermeister wafting through the living room!
The company uses American-grown soy and follows industry guidelines to ensure their products are of the highest quality. Plus, they're environmentally friendly, utilizing recycled cans that they trim so you don't accidentally cut yourself. For additional fun, customers can even custom design their own candle by picking their preferred scent and holder.
People really love these candles, and the fact that they have over 1,000 unanimously positive reviews shows the hype is real. These would make excellent stocking stuffers for the soda enthusiasts in your life, whether it's friends, family, or that co-worker who always has a can of Diet Coke on their desk.
You can find them here.
