Lighting candles around your space gives it a certain type of ambiance, but the scents you choose can really set the tone and show your personality. Long gone are the days that vanilla and pine are the only options out there, and Etsy sellers are taking it a step further by making handcrafted candles that smell like your favorite sodas in upcycled cans.
Food brands have gotten experimental with their merch offerings with many making candles that smell like their most iconic dishes. McDonald’s has made a collection of candles to resemble all of the layers of a hamburger and Panda Express sells one in honor of the honey sesame chicken dish fans love. Etsy sellers are taking a page out of this book and making their own candles for people to buy and light in their space.
For those who like the smell of their favorite sodas and not just the taste, you can spruce up your room or kitchen with any of these Etsy products. You can search just about any soda brand with “candle” in the search bar on Etsy, but some of the best selling varieties are Dr. Pepper, Sprite, A&W Root Beer, and Mountain Dew.
The soy candle wax is made to remind you of the soda’s flavors—meaning Dr. Pepper has a subtle spice to it, Sprite and Mountain Dew are lemon-lime, and A&W has that caramel-vanilla smell. All of these scents are soft enough to work in any space, and the wax is poured into a can to give them an authentic look that will look good on your shelf. Prices range anywhere from $10 to $15, so you can treat yourself or someone else without breaking the bank, all the while supporting a small business on Etsy.
