The Sweet Smell of White Castle—Now In Candle Form
“Starting today, no true Craver’s castle will be complete without a The Original Slider-scented candle,” says Jamie Richardson, vice president of corporate relations. “We expect the first run of 10,000 candles to be snapped up quickly during National Hamburger Month, May 1–31.”
He says the idea for the candle was sparked when company executives met Laura Slatkin, who sits on the board of Autism Speaks.
“We wanted to do something special for our loyal Cravers during National Hamburger Month while exploring a new way to support a great cause,” Richardson says. “Laura has launched fragrances for such fashion luminaries and celebrities as Vera Wang, Elton John, and Princess Diana. We believed Laura and Nest Fragrances was ready to take on the challenge of reproducing the signature beef-and-onion scent that has inspired the cravings of millions of customers from all over the world.”
“When I think of truly superior aromas, I think of the aroma of a freshly grilled White Castle hamburger—life just doesn’t get better than that,” Slatkin says. “We have captured that exact essence in our White Castle candle.”
