Is there anything more intoxicating than the aroma of White Castle burgers sizzling on the griddle? Well, okay, maybe there are a few things. But as anyone who’s ever walked through the doors of a White Castle restaurant at lunchtime knows, when that smell smacks you in the nose, you’re going to probably order one or two more sliders than you can possibly eat.
If only they could bottle that fragrance.
Or make a scented candle. Wait, they have made a White Castle burger-with-onions scented candle—and just in time for holiday gift giving!
Actually, the White Castle people and Nest Fragrances first created these burger stink-bombs back in May in honor of National Hamburger Month. The limited supply of 10,000 sold out faster than a Lady Gaga concert—gone in 48 hours.
Now they’re back and available online only at www.houseofcrave.com , White Castle’s online store, for $13 plus shipping.
“The holidays are a perfect time for the candle to return because it’s a different, fun, quirky gift for the ultimate Craver anywhere,” Richardson told QSR Magazine.
Plus, they go to a good cause, Richardson noted. “Cravers get their very own burger-and-onion-scented candle and the sales help Autism Speaks http://www.autismspeaks.org/, an organization both White Castle and Nest Fragrances are strongly committed to.”
