World’s first edible candles are back just in time for Christmas stocking fillers

The new quirky way to add Christmas flavours to warming winter beverages

Not only do these candles burn just like any other candle, releasing the most delicious scent, you can eat them too. Yes, you read that right. It's an edible candle you can eat.

You are most likely now pulling the same face we did, one of pure confusion – asking how and why you’d eat a candle.

First up the most important thing to state is that this is NOT a regular wax candle, it’s an edible version made from a mixture of coconut oil and raw cocoa butte

So that's the how. As for the why...why not?
