Dream Or Nightmare: A Kentucky Fried Chicken-Scented Candle

I recently went on a fall candle shopping spree, so every room of my house is now filled with blissful smells like balsam wood, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, firewood, and cranberry peppermint. But you know what scent is missing from my candle lineup? KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN. Luckily, a Kentucky candlemaker named Kathy Werking has created just such a product, and she didn’t take her job lightly. Check out the product description:

“To craft the perfect xtra crispy aroma, Kathy picks up her cast iron skillet, adds a little seasoning, and gets to work. To make these candles, she fries chicken in all-natural soy wax and adds an infusion of family secrets.”

Yep, these candles are the real deal. If the thought of the aroma of fried chicken wafting through your house fills you with glee instead of dry heaves, you’ll need to act fast: the first batch of 25 KFC candles sold out in under a minute, and the next batch of 100 is going fast!

Home Inspiration: Fabulous Fall Candles

The other night I was curled up under a blanket, sipping hot cocoa, flipping through a magazine and basically having the best fall lifestyle. But then I realized something was missing: FALL CANDLES. I was still burning my light, fruity, summer candles, and therefore my house was not reaching its full fall vibes potential, which is so not OK with me. It’s time for yummy fall scents like balsam wood, cinnamon, pumpkin, juniper, cranberry, and hot buttered rum. Click through to check out some of The Frisky staff’s favorite scents of the season. The best part? These fall candles don’t just smell good, they look good too!

10 Celebrity Prayer Candles (And Suggested Prayers For Each One)

I recently bought myself a Dolly Parton prayer candle (because hello, it was $7 and I truly do view her as a powerful, sequined deity), and let me tell you: I’m pretty sure my repeated requests for for bigger hair and sassier comebacks are paying off. Since lighting it, I can even hit the high notes in “Jolene”! Hallelujah!

Just in case you’re also in need of some divine celebrity intervention, I decided to round up 10 celebrity prayer candles you can buy (including my precious Dolly), and an example of the prayer you might want to use for each one. Click on the gallery above to see how celebs like Saint Kanye, Mother Minaj, and Angel Bieber can help you achieve your dreams!

My office is not exactly an example of cleanliness and tranquility (once I left a half-eaten veggie burger under my easel for so long it started to grow arms and legs), but the scent of this Island Vanilla soy candle is so lovely and intoxicating that I can light it and close my eyes and forget about my cluttered, chaotic reality for a moment. I can take a deep breath and pretend I’m on some tropical vanilla-scented island, swinging in a hammock, without any risk of being attacked by an angry, sentient veggie burger. And that, my friends, is the sign of a really great candle. [$6, Pacifica]
