Vlasic and Candier By Ryan Porter Create The Perfect Candle For Pickle Lovers

Pickles or brined cucumbers, also known as gherkins, are a popular addition to meals or as a standalone snack. The crisp, tangy, and sometimes spicy pickles have a satisfying crunch and distinctly pleasant aroma. 

In celebration of National Pickle Day, November 14th, Conagra-owned Vlasic partnered with candlemaker Candier by Ryan Porter to bring fill pickle fans’ homes with the authentic smell of dill pickles.

The candle comes in a metal-capped pickle jar with a Vlasic-inspired label. Jovny the stork, Vlasic’s mascot, appears on the candle label and lid. Vlasic and Candier, however, reset the bar for novelty brand candles with a pour that emulates the real deal; dark-green, long shapes resemble pickles, with a lighter green color that imitates pickle brine, and bubbles add to the realism.

“We saw a huge opportunity to do something really fun and different with Vlasic in celebration of National Pickle Day. But creating a candle that looks and smells like a real jar of pickles posed several big challenges,” says Krysten Kauder, founder of Candier by Ryan Porter, in a press release. “Getting the wax pickles to look like they're floating in clear liquid was really tough. So, everything had to be done by hand, including the placement of the pickles and pouring of the wax. After lots of rounds of research and testing, our team nailed it and produced a 100% wax candle that looks and smells like a jar of Vlasic pickles.”

Vlasic pickle candles are available for pre-order now at ShopRyanPorter.com for $29.
