Candles don’t usually spring to mind when one thinks of last-minute ideas for Father’s Day gifts. But Kraft Heinz plans to change that.
Heinz’s A1 Sauce brand has unveiled meat-scented candles, which come in three ‘flavours’: Classic Burger, Meat and BBQ, complete with labels matching its sauce bottle.
“Father’s Day gifts are always the same,” explains the US brand. “Year after year, it’s another tie, a book, a bottle of cologne, or a mug saying world’s greatest dad. Does Dad really need another set of tools this year?”
Well, yes, the company argues: hence its brave foray into scented candles…
“A1 Meat Scented Candles make for a truly unique gift that celebrates Dad, evokes memories of fathers cooking, grilling and using A1 sauce for all grilling occasions… and of course smells amazing.”
The limited-edition 9oz candles sell for US$14.99 each. Kraft Heinz promises a burn time of 50 to 70 hours.
You can buy them on the brand’s website – until stocks are exhausted.
