Yankee Candle launches new chocolate candle for Easter that smells ‘exactly like Mini Eggs’

There's an Easter cupcake candle, too!

Shoppers are drooling over Yankee Candle's latest launch – a chocolate-scented Easter candle that smells just like Cadbury Mini Eggs.

The Chocolate Eggs candle, which retails at £23.99 on the brand's website, is one of two limited-edition candles released for Easter.

The large glass jar candle weighs in at 623g and comes with a burn time of between 110 and 150 hours.

On the front of the jar – which is filled with a delicious-looking chocolate-coloured candle – is a picture of chocolate Easter nest cakes, topped with Mini Eggs.

The blurb states of the scent: "Rich and creamy chocolate eggs with vanilla-scented candy shells, recreating the fragrance of a purely decadent Easter treat."

It sounds good enough to eat (although of course we don't recommend that!)

It added that the candle has top notes of chocolate mousse pudding and cocoa, mid notes of fruity cranberry and sugar and a vanilla extract base note.

All combined, shoppers say it smells "exactly like Cadbury Mini Eggs".

For those who aren't fans of chocolate, Yankee Candle also has you covered with the second of its limited-edition Easter launches.
