Candles offer whiff of White Castle

Friday, May 7, 2010

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Fans of White Castle's oniony hamburgers have a new way to indulge without any calorie guilt: a scented candle infused with the burgers' aroma.

The Columbus, Ohio-based fast-food chain this week introduced candles that smell like its Slider burgers in a promotion with Autism Speaks. Proceeds will benefit the New York-based charity.

The candles resemble a packaged White Castle burger and are being sold at the company's restaurants and on its website.

The wax is encased in a ceramic holder that looks like a Slider's cardboard sleeve.
