- Would you like White Castle candles over your White Castle meal?
White Castle may have been started in Kansas, but the fast food purveyor of mini-burgers is now run out of Columbus, so any White-Castle-related news always has a home here at Scene & Heard. And, regardless, the news you're about to read is so mind-blowing, it really doesn't matter whether it has to do with Ohio or not.
Ever scarf down 18 White Castle sliders at 3 a.m. and think to yourself, "I wish my house could smell like this all the time"? Well, now you can. According to a press release, White Castle is rolling out a White-Castle-scented candle to celebrated National Hamburger Month. Waft in that oniony, meaty goodness.
To commemorate its 18th annual celebration of National Hamburger Month, White Castle has teamed up with Laura Slatkin, often called the "queen" of home fragrances, to introduce a candle with the steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America's first fast-food hamburger. Packaged in a ceramic holder that reproduces the signature cardboard sleeve of the White Castle Slyder®, the candles are available in select White Castle restaurants and on the WhiteCastle.com website. Candles sell for $10 each, with net proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks.
If you'd like your house to smell like the morning after a White Castle expedition, you'll have to purchase your loose-morning-shits candle elsewhere, however.
