Every once in awhile we need to check behind our shoulders to see if someone is chuckling at a funny joke they’re playing on us. Unfortunately, in these cases, there’s often no one there — and the news we’re reading is actually very, very real.
So is the case with Pringles’ new batch of meat and cheese-scented candles. Now we can all relate to Buddy the Elf, who once declared of a Kris Kringle imposter, “You don’t smell like Santa. You smell like beef and cheese.”
Except it won’t just be Santa impostors that smell — it will be everyone. The whole room, in fact!
Is anyone else gagging? Not yet? I’ll tell you more!
The scents include, “Pigs In A Blanket,” “Cheesey Cheese” and, “Texas BBQ.” According to the HuffPost UK, these scents are a preliminary release of just 500 candles to buyers to see if the response is kind enough to warrant a larger scale release. The publication also admits the, “Pigs In A Blanket’ scent is much better digested as an actual food than it is morphed into a candle. While I haven’t been able to catch a whiff of any of these scents (and for that I am grateful), I’ll just take their word for it.
While I’m all for getting festive, meat and cheese-scented candles are probably taking it a little too far.
A Pringles’ spokesperson said: “The candles are particularly pungent, so we might need to scale back on the odor before unleashing them on a mass scale next year.”
At least we can look forward to improvements in 2016?
