Bacon Candles Exist, Smell Like Bacon

Bacon goes with everything, and I don't mean strictly in the realm of breakfast foods.

We're talking about everything in the physical world. Bacon condoms, bacon soap, maple bacon beer, and bacon vodka. With this influx of bacon slowly taking over the world, it shouldn't come as a shock that our favorite non-Kosher meat has graduated into candle territory. The Maple Bacon Southern Kitchen Candle pays homage to the best part of a pig in a way that allows your apartment to fill with the aroma of bacon without having to physically cook. 

Each candle is made from a special soy wax and is handcrafted with a natural wooden wick that provides that distinct crackling sound you only get during the holidays when you make your good-for-nothin' kids build you a fire for those lazy Sundays at home. 

If you're going for the whole aromatic breakfast motif, The Southern Kitchen Candle Collection also features a hot coffee candle that will—if possible—further strengthen your love for the hot, dark stuff. The only issue is the ensuing mouth full of saliva that will surely follow. On the other hand, do you know what's extremely easy to make? Coffee. 

The crème de la crème is the Sunday Pot Roast candle that smells exactly how you remember. Upon further inspection, this collection is more than a pungent set of lovely smells—they're a full-on nostalgia burn that will launch you back into a time where your mother would tell you to turn off the TV and join the family at the dinner table for incredible food and—if you ate all your vegetables—dessert. 

Because each candle is made of soy, you probably won't die if you take a few bites. It's frowned upon, but so are a lot of fun things.
