Great scent and a prize awaits you with soy Prize Candle’s

I have been hearing about prize candles for some time now, but until I was asked if I’d like to try one free to review via Taste Maker Mom, I was content to burn my regular “no prize candles”.  Curiosity got the better of me and my daughter’s.  I was happy to learn I’d been selected to participate. All opinions are my own.

Prize Candle offers elegantly crafted scented natural soy candles that contain a hidden prize in every candle.

Our pretty Prize Candle arrived and naturally the first thing we noticed was the scent. We received the Adriatic Fig, which is light and fruity. I also liked the snow white color of the wax.

There’s just something inviting about a snow white candle to me. I almost didn’t want to burn it, but how else were we going to get to the prize?  My youngest daughter couldn’t wait to see what we’d win after reading this on the back of our candle box.

With the assurance that we would win a prize of at least $10, we lit our candle.

The Prize candle burns clean and evenly, just like I’ve come to expect from a soy candle. It also burns slowly, which normally is a good thing- but not when you are waiting for your first glimpse of your prize!

Our candle burned just over an hour before we saw the prize pack. We let it burn another 20 minutes before we could pull our prize from the melting wax.

Opening the little plastic bag covered in wax was a messy but fun job. My daughter and I were up to the task and this is what we got for our efforts.

The ring, which is a pretty costume jewelry piece, is small for my average size fingers, so it only felt comfortable on my pinkie finger. That didn’t bother me at all because I’d already promised my daughter she could have the ring. 

We headed over to the Prize Candle site to redeem our prize next. My daughter was so excited that we had a chance to win lots of money. Her excitement was contagious and I crossed my fingers as we entered our special code in the appraisal box. We won $10 dollars off our first purchase of a Prize Candle which was a bit of a letdown. I will use the coupon code though if I chose to purchase a Prize Candle for a friend.

I've heard about these prize candles and I hear that some of them reveal some amazing prizes. I love scented candles so I would definitely buy this just for the candle alone.

I've always been curious about the prize candles, thanks for sharing your experience! I think I go a little over-board on candles as I truly love using them... but will probably have to check this out just for the sheer fun of discovering a fun prize!

Hi Maria,

I think you'll like the scents of the Prize Candles- we are really enjoying our Adriatic Fig and have decided to buy another.

Hi Barb,

Is there such a thing as going overboard on candle usage? ;)

I have to admit the thrill of the prize inside is a lot of fun. If you purchase a Prize Candle, please share what you win with us.

Hi Carlee,
What a great analogy- this candle was like a grown up version of Cracker Jacks! It is exciting to enjoy the scent and light of the candle while you watch the prize slowly reveal itself.

Hi Daisy,

My daughter loves her ring and is waiting for a "special occasion" to wear it.
These candles would make a perfect gift!
