Let Them Eat Candles makes beautiful chocolate candles topped with a traditional wick. Sing a round or two of Happy Birthday—that’s about as long as the lit wick will last—and once it’s blown out, toss the wick and enjoy your chocolate with a bit of frosting on it.
Founder Loree Sandler thought typical birthday candles weren’t festive (or tasty) enough. Plus, as soon as the song is sung, they get thrown out.
Loree drew on her architecture background to create hundreds of prototypes. The winner is a gently tapered shape, with a narrow base that punctures cakes and cupcakes easily.
Plus, it provides a generous background for the edible transfer designs on the front. The wider top also gives the wick more room, which is important because chocolate melts much faster than a wax candle.
That’s why these edible little candles come in packs of three—light them, blow them out, and enjoy.
