These photos got lost somewhere in the shuffle since Thanksgiving (!!!) I meant to post them, but somehow I forgot. Whoops!
So even though these were taken in November, I want to picture it like it was yesterday: We went on a little excursion while I was visiting Matt's family for Thanksgiving. I've been kind of a candle nut this past year, and Matt's mom knows that, so she kindly took us to visit Kringle Candle during the holiday weekend.
Kringle is a company whose owners used to run Yankee Candle before they sold it. After a few years of being idle millionaires, they decided they were bored, and that they wanted to make a new candle company. Bing, bang, boom... just like that, Kringle Candle was born.**
** This story is totally probably not the real story, and has been exaggerated for blog entertainment purposes. But they really are the same guys from Yankee Candle.
There were so many scents to choose from, and they were all too good. We ended up getting like nine "sampler" candles rather than the big ones, because we couldn't decide! Plus the bigger candles were quite pricey. My favorite is food/ sweet scents, so of course my favorites are maple syrup, and pineapple coconut. Yum! I'd say they're just as good as YC, and a little less perfume-y to boot.
As part of the experience, there were also additional little shops across the street: a chocolate shop, a gift shop, and a restaurant. We spent some time browsing around, and they had some loose teas which were REALLY delicious-sounding. I ended up getting a maple tea (surprise, surprise), as well as the gingersnap. Matt got a bacon chocolate bar, and it was good.
Unfortunately, the restaurant was super crowded, so we had to get out of there. We actually ended up driving two towns over to the Yankee Candle outlet to go to their restaurant. Haha.
