Paula Deen Candles: Love It or Hate It?

Linens 'n' Things is selling these Paula Deen candles ($19.99), which come in flavors like banana oatmeal chip cookie, coconut pound cake, and banana cream pie. Personally, I'm not sure I would buy them; I prefer candles in basic scents. Still, if they smell like Paula's home cooking, they might be worth checking out! What do you think of them?

To JohnEric704.Sorry my grammar and spelling didn't meet your standards, but that wasn't the reason I sent the post. I buy candles all the time and I didn't care for the candle,I don't care how much candle you get for $20! If it doesn't smell good or burn well It isn't worth it. The reason for the post was to let people know how the candles burn and smell thats all. So maybe you should buy a GOOD candle (like a yankee candle )to know a good one from a bad one.

Not a great speller or a grammar fan there are you Mississippi?... Where in the world do you all shop that you think $20 is expensive for a 38 ounce candle? This candle is in a huge (in the candle world) jar that can be used as a candy jar after the candle is gone, which will take a llllooong time. They smell great and come with a recipe for the "dessert" candle you choose. It's very common that $1 per ounce is a great deal for a candle, and based on that math- you guys are missing something here.

First off I am a big Paula Deen fan. People sometimes call me Paula, cause I love to cook and bake. I bought one of your candle one I'm a candle lover and it had your name on it. I was very disappointed with it not what I expected not a very strong scent at all. I thought for sure your candle could have been smelled threw the house or at least in the room it was lit in. But NO! can't smell it at all. Sorry I won't every buy them again. But I still love ya Paula

I wonder if there's a butter scented candle.

I love candles that smell like food, so I think they would be good, if they were authentic smelling.

I'm sure they smell good, but that's a pretty steep price to pay just for a celebrity name on the tag. Where's the butter or lard flavor?

I have to be the different one here to say: I cant STAND Paula Deen. I think she's a nasty glutton who confuses taste with excess. I get the Southern trend of eating rich and not always so healthy, but I find her to be gross. It figures she'd have a candle this scent. LOL Whatever happened to "clean linen" smells? LOL

I like Paula but I prefer floral scented candles so I'm less likely to get hungry. :)

I bet these candles smell really good... That said, I have to admit I've lost some respect for Paula Deen seeing that she is now the spokesperson for Smithfield. They are a bad corporation that cares more about the bottom line than their employees. To add to the wound, they openly dump waste into open cesspools, polluting the entire county they are located in. I'm not normally so "activist" but this is very bothersome because it's happening about an hour from where I live... I know she's getting paid and all but how can you associate your name with something like that?

I love scented candles that smell like really yummy stuff like cookies and cakes...they make my house smell awesome! $20 is pretty steep, but like AmberHoney said, the cheap candles usually don't smell like much and I do like to splurge on GOOD candles. Do they make one that smells like butter? Can't have Paula Deen candles without butter :)

tlsgirl - it may seem expensive, but cheap candles don't give off much scent. I'm frugal and I've tried, not worth it, it just ends up being a candle.

I like basic clean scents but one of Paula's candles might make my kitchen smell good as if I had been baking all day. I might give it a try.

But they're so expensive. $20 for one candle!

What? No bacon, buttercream, or donut scents? Are you *sure* these are from Paula Deen?
