Candles come in just about every scent from blueberry pancakes to an auto shop (who wants this smell??). But now you can buy a candle that smells like your favorite breakfast cereal. General Mills just released a bunch of cereal candles and they are now available to buy at Target.

General Mills did not skip many of their most popular cereal when they made these candles. Although, if you’re looking for a healthy cereal, you’re out of luck. The sugar-y cereals are what these candles are inspired by.

There are actually four different types of candles. They differ based on how they are decorated. There are candles decorated like the actual cereal box and ones that are covered in a photo of the actual cereal. There are also candles covered in pieces of cereal along with their names and other candles that look like small glass containers of milk

The cereals chosen include Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Lucky Charms, and  Cocoa Puffs. Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a cinnamon scent, Lucky Charms smells like sugar, Trix has a fruity scent, Honey Nut Cheerios smells like honey (duh!), and Cocoa Puffs smells like chocolate.

There is also a set of three where you can get a Cinnamon Toast Crunch candle, a Honey Nut Cheerios candle, and a Lucky Charms candle all for $15. Each candle is 5 ounces.

These candles also come in different sizes including a single wick 11 ounce, a 3-wick 12 ounce, a 3-wick 13.5 ounce, and a single wick four-ounce candle.   The 11-ounce, 12 ounce, and 13.5 ounce are all $10 each while the four-ounce candle is only $5.

Considering how much candles can be these days, these are a great deal. You don’t find candles with three wicks for under $15-$20 very often.
