You can now get a Mountain Dew-scented candle, but why?


There’s no doubt that people love Mountain Dew but what about a candle scented like the popular soda? Why buy one of these? Let’s talk about it here!

If you’ve shopped for candles in the past couple of years, you’ve probably seen that food-scented candles are all the rage. Everything from chocolate layer cake to pumpkin trifle to bacon (yes, there is a bacon candle). But while food-scented candles usually makes sense (no pun intended), who wants their house to smell like Mountain Dew? And what exactly does that smell like?

Whatever the answers are, people are buying them. The candle is a bestseller in the 716 Candle Co shop on Etsy and they have over 500 reviews.  If you want to check them out for yourself, it costs $15 for an 8-10 oz can.

The candle comes in a Mountain Dew can but with smoothed out edges so you don’t have to worry about cutting yourself.

More from Drinks

It’s made with 100% soy wax and if you’re not into the Mountain Dew scent, you can choose from one of the other 40 choices. They range from apple/maple bourbon to white tea.

There’s even a Diet Mountain Dew option if you want it to smell more chemically, I guess? You can also get an unscented one, if you prefer. They also offer other soda and beer candles.

I get that it probably smells like lemon-lime and I get that people are obsessed with this drink, but a candle? I love Sour Patch Kids but I don’t know that I’d buy a candle that smelled like them. What makes someone buy this candle? Do they like they gimmick? Or are they collecting soda memorabilia? Give me answers, internet!
