You've probably already heard of the candles with the jewelry that comes inside. Like me, I'm sure if you have yet to try one, you have some lingering questions...
Are they worth the cost?
How do the candles compare to other candles? Do they even smell good?
How long do the candles last? Do they burn up fast?
Well, I was excited and jumped at the opportunity to test out one from Jackpot Candles! I have always been a candle lover.
They gave me the choice of "flavors", as I refer to them fondly. It wasn't an easy choice, let me tell you, especially if you assume that they smell like their names.
Georgia Peach, Sweet Pea, Cinnamon Sensation, Cinnamon Bun, Birthday Cake, and Cherry Blast were some of my top picks, but I ended up choosing to get the Blueberry Muffin.
The Nitty Gritty
I couldn't wait to light the hand-poured soy candle! Within about 5 minutes of lighting it for the first time, the entire house was filled with the aroma of blueberry muffins baking in the oven. I couldn't have been happier!
Of course, the kids were more intrigued by the fact that the candle had jewelry inside, so I had to burn it...
And burn it...
And burn it...
These are some long-lasting candles!
About halfway through the candle, we could see a bright pink aluminum foil looking wrapper type of thing starting to reveal itself in the wax.
Because I know my little critters, I knew that if I didn't get some tweezers and extract the small package in the wax, these little people would be trying to get into my candle (and probably totally destroy it).
So, I carefully performed the extraction.
And I opened the package to find some pretty little earrings and a code. I entered the code on the Jackpot Candles website, which told me the earrings were valued at $25.
As I mentioned, I am a candle lover. So, I do know how much candles generally cost, plus I know what you would pay for the candles that emit the house - wide aromas that we look forward to.
How much do you pay for your 16 oz. candles? A Jackpot Candles 16 oz. candle costs $24.95. Then, of course, you get the jewelry inside, too, which is valued between $15 and $5,000.
My Honest Opinion?
I LOVE THEM! I honestly cannot wait to try some of the other "flavors" on my favorites list! If you are a candle lover like me, Jackpot Candles are must-try candles. I still have plenty of the candle left to burn, as well as my new jewelry to wear.
