Aldi Shoppers Rush To Stores For Viral 10-Wick Candle

  • Aldi's enormous wooden candle is back in stock, causing a shopper frenzy.
  • The £10 salted orchid and driftwood scented candle is praised for its delightful aroma.
  • Consumers share their excitement and tips on social media, with some noting its resemblance to pricier alternatives.

Remember the gigantic wooden candle that set the internet ablaze with excitement? Aldi has brought it back, and fans of home decor are dashing to grab it. Dubbed the salted orchid and driftwood candle, it's not just its size that's capturing hearts but its "amazing" smell too. Imagine, for a mere £10, you can add this conversation starter to your living room.

Mary, among the eager buyers, couldn't help but snag two of these beauties during her latest shopping spree. Her TikTok post, showcasing the candle's journey from shelf to trolley and finally, its grand illumination at home, has sparked a significant buzz. The sight of all 10 wicks ablaze is something to behold, prompting many to express their desperation to own one.

The conversation around this candle extends beyond its aesthetic and olfactory appeal. Questions about its scent were met with enthusiastic affirmations of its delightful fragrance. Meanwhile, practical advice floated around too, like caution against overly trimming the wicks for fear of them not lighting.

This candle craze isn't limited to those with easy access to Aldi. Some disappointed fans found solace in discovering a similar item at Home Bargains for the same price, albeit in a citronella scent. It's a testament to Aldi's reputation for offering affordable alternatives to high-end products, such as its Rose and Sandalwood candles, which serve as budget-friendly counterparts to luxurious brands like Jo Malone.

Sarah Bull at The Sun highlighted the phenomenon of Aldi's 10-wick candle, shedding light on the excitement and tips shared by shoppers like Mary on social media platforms.

Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, commented, "Aldi's knack for creating high-demand homeware items, like this 10-wick candle, showcases the brand's understanding of consumer desires for quality, affordability, and uniqueness. It's fascinating to see the community's engagement, from practical advice to shared excitement over such finds."
