Scent Description: Let the fresh, fried sizzle of savory golden goodness drift into your hearts and homes with one of our most delectable creations to date. To craft the perfect xtra crispy aroma, Kathy picks up her cast iron skillet, adds a little seasoning, and gets to work. To make these candles, she fries chicken in all-natural soy wax and adds an infusion of family secrets. With only 25 of these available, you'll want to keep this mouth-watering recipe to yourself.of the Commonwealth- "Fried Chicken".

Rating Breakdown:

  • Packaging/Presentation: This was a thick-bottom clear glass jar filled with off white soy wax. There were two wicks that were well placed. The black/white oval label on the front had a picture of a plate of fried chicken with the name ‘Fried Chicken’ in scrolled font. The label gave the whole candle a country vintage vibe.  Throughout the candle I could see seasoning/spices from where the chicken was actually fried in the soy wax. Kinda cool! 3.5/5
  • Scent: This literally smells like fried chicken. The real deal. Considering the chicken was fried in the soy wax, this makes sense. There were notes of fried chicken grease that I couldn’t really push out of my nose…I mean, my mind. Not a scent I think I would want to burn constantly in my home, but it hits the mark exactly on what it was trying to do. 4/5
  • Scent Throw: The throw on this candle was light to moderate. It had a fairly strong cold throw. Once burning, it enveloped the smaller size room enough to know that it was there. It was a persistent smell but more like a background scent. 3/5
  • Performance: This was an incredibly clean burning candle. The two wicks gave me a full wax melt pool in little of no time. The wicks were not hard to maintain. On the initial burn, I had no wasted wax. On my second burn, I had a small rim of unmelted wax and the melt pool was not very deep. I think this contributed to the lighter scent throw. 3.5/5
  • Customer Service (if applicable): I had excellent CS with this order. No problems. 5/5
  • Overall rating: 3.5/5 (Technically 3.8 but rounding down for scent throw.)

Disclosures: None. I purchased this product myself.









Happy candle burning ~

  1. The chicken was fried in the wax…The first time I have ever heard of someone doing this. If you have pets I would make sure to keep it out of range as I would be concerned a dog would eat this.
