A whiff of burger royalty

White CastleIf you turn up empty handed this Mother's Day, mom will surely understand.

We all know those White Castle hamburger-scented candles sold out in a flash.

Introduced just days ago to mark National Hamburger Month, the $10 "Slyder-scented" candle can make home-sweet-home smell like a fast-food joint. It sold out online less that 48 hours after it went on sale Monday.

"White Castle has teamed up with Laura Slatkin, often called the 'queen' of home fragrances, to introduce a candle with the steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America's first fast-food hamburger," the company said in its announcement.

The burger candles are shaped to look like the cardboard sleeve of the White Castle Slyder. (And yes, White Castle really does spell it with a "y.") Proceeds from sales of the candle will benefit an autism charity called Autism Speaks.

The candles can be had in White Castle stores, but the chain doesn't have any Maryland locations. (The burgers, at least, are available in the freezer section of many a Maryland supermarket.) There is a waiting list for candles online.

If mom's a fast-food burger lover, get her name on the list and it'll be a happy Mother's Day.

M dearly departed ex used to call them "armpit burgers". No thanks on having a whole room or house smelling like that.

I'm with Meekrat,
If the candle smells of onion and beef, I would guess that the smell isn't far from sweaty armpit.

The closest White Castle is in Tom's River, NJ about 145 miles from Parkville, MD.


These candles sound amazing. Would love to get my hands on one, but I live in ireland.
