KFC’S New Gravy Scented Candle Will Make Your House Smell Like Sunday Dinner

There have been many an occasion where my house inadvertently smelled of gravy. Unintentional, yes, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious. The sensations that come from a nose full of the scent of gravy evokes feelings of relaxation and pangs of hunger all in a single whiff.

So what’s one way to get that rich gravy smell to seep through your household?

Kentucky Fried Chicken in the United Kingdom is offering up 230 limited edition Gravy Scented Candles for guests to light in the comfort of their own homes.

In order to get your hands on one of these exclusive candles, you have to enter KFC UK’s prize draw with your name and email. KFC will then select 230 fans to ship a gravy candle to. This is part of a promotion for the chain’s new Gravy Mega Box which features chicken filets, chicken wings, fries, and the Colonel’s gravy as a dipping sauce.

One of the highlights of KFC’s sides menu is the thick brown gravy that accompanies their mashed potatoes. With one of these scented candles, you can enjoy that fragrance for as long as there’s a wick attached.

Man, wonder if I can enter from the States?

Make Your Home Smell Like the Drive-Thru with this White Castle Slider Candle


We all know the drive-thru smell. Whether it’s due to the grease leaking out of the bottom of the bag or because your friends had to eat their food immediately, there are dozens of reasons why your car and clothes sustain “the funk.” Sure, it seems like a great idea to pick up the pizzas in your car — that is, until your nostrils have to bear the aroma of old cheese seeping from your upholstery. For a week.

Good news fast food fans! If you’re part of the minority that would choose to have this smell as a consistent part of their everyday life, you can now purchase the White Castle Original Slider Candle. Just think about all of the real-life scenarios that this candle could improve!

Planning a seductive date night? Chocolate, rose petals and regular candles are too cliché. Impress your date by lining your room with fries, burgers and, of course, these Slider Candles. Power go out during the zombie apocalypse? It’s too bad you didn’t prepare the essentials like water and non-perishable food. However, at least you can light these candles and pretend to be eating!

The best part? White Castle’s candle proceeds benefit Autism Speak and cost a cool 15 bucks. And just in case White Castle doesn’t float your boat, did you see these Fried Chicken Candles?!


Today I Learned: You Can Transform Crisco Into An Emergency Candle


When it comes to zombie apocalypses, the guy behind Crisco knew what was up. While many of us instinctively go for the baseball bat or duct tape when we think “Essentials for a Zombie Takeover,” few realize that in the event of an apocalypse, electricity will become a rarity, if not a thing of the past.

Cue in Crisco — a tub of shortening that also happens to be a gigantic candle in disguise. Simply take a tub of Crisco, drill a hole down the middle using a chopstick, insert a piece of string, and light that baby up. The DIY candle will burn for 8 hours a day, for 45 days. 

Bottomline: In case of zombie apocalypse, grab Crisco.
