In celebration of National Pickle Day, held on November 14, Vlasic, a brand of Conagra Brands, Inc., teamed up with home fragrance and accessories company, Candier by Ryan Porter, to create a limited-edition pickle candle.
Ryan Porter website, the candle looks and smells like a real jar of Vlasic pickles. As of this publication, the candle is available for pre-order after having sold out again.
In addition to the pickle candle, the Vlasic line includes dozens of varieties of pickles, peppers and relishes in many cuts, flavors and sizes.
Krysten Kauder, founder, Candier by Ryan Porter, was quoted on a PR Newswire press release saying, "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. 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."
