Pringles Release New Salty Scented Candles To U.K. Distributors


This holiday season you can throw out your ‘Pumpkin Pie’ and ‘Christmas Cookie’ scented candles and replace them with something a bit saltier, like a Pringles candle.

Three flavours of Pringles Scented Candles, created this year to celebrate the fact the nation gets tucking into Pringles at Christmas time. A Pringles spokesperson said: “What better way to create the perfect festive atmosphere than with the scented Pringles Candle. It’s just not Christmas without the scent – and, of course, delicious taste – of Pringles.”

Pringles announced that they released 500 chip-scented candles to buyers in the U.K. The Kellogg owned company sent them to large British retailers like Asda, Tesco and Waitrose. So far, the candle scents are Pigs in Blankets, Texas BBQ, and Cheesy Cheese. Each candle is wrapped with the signature Pringles logo and a message saying “Merry Pringles.”

It’s hard to predict if this crazy idea will catch on or if supermarkets will even want to give it a shot. Some have speculated that it may be a marketing stunt, but these candles seem like their ready to hit the shelves.
