Pickle Lovers, You Need this Candle

Still can’t figure out the perfect gift to give that friend who has everything? Vlasic Pickles has pulled something rather unique out of the box—or should we say—jar. 

The gherkin manufacturers, which first began operating in 1942, have drawn inspiration from what they know and created the world’s first candle that smells like a jar of pickles!

The unusual item is a collaboration with the brand Candier by Ryan Porter which is known for making candles with amusing scents with funny names like “know your worth and add tax,” and “I’m not coming unless there’s wine”.

“We saw a huge opportunity to do something really fun and different with Vlasic in celebration of National Pickle Day. But creating a candle that looks and smells like a real jar of pickles posed several big challenges,” said Krysten Kauder who founded Candier. “Getting the wax pickles to look like they’re floating in clear liquid was really tough. So, everything had to be done by hand, including the placement of the pickles and pouring of the wax. After lots of rounds of research and testing, our team nailed it and produced a 100% wax candle that looks and smells like a jar of Vlasic pickles.”

Just don’t be tempted to grab a gherkin!
