Scent-sational Scoop... See the Light (Candle Give Away) !!!

     King Cake Ice Cream ...check.
    
     King Cake Vodka ...check.

     King Cake Scented Candle ...check.

     Who doesn't love all things King Cake?

     On a recent trip to Little Miss Muffin, I noticed a table vignette of lovely earth-friendly recycled packages containing great smelling candles named See the Light by Fleur de Light Candles. I could not resist the King Cake scented offering of this fine line. How timely! I was intrigued by the aroma of this candle--- cinnamon-based but not overpowering and a vanilla scented throw similar to the yummy icing of delicious king cakes. Have I whet your appetite? The scent captures the king cake perfectly.


     Sondra Berger founded the candle company in 2006 as a"love letter to her hometown of New Orleans." The candles use 100% cotton wicks to reduce soot and carbon. The scents ensure a full, long lasting aroma.



     I was further intrigued when I discovered that through the sales of See the Light candles in cooperation with the Second Harvest Food Banks of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana, over 19,000 people have been fed since August 2011. One dollar from each candle sold goes directly to Second Harvest Food Bank, providing a meal to a family of four. "See the Light, Feed the Hungry emerged from a personal goal", says SB. She further states that when she started the company she wanted to "give something back to her community." She recalled her parent's depression era stories of battling food shortages, and her new idea was born.
     How can you not appreciate this concept? Buy one candle and feed a family of four. I am sold. I cannot wait to discover the other delicious scents of this fine candle line---Fig, French Market, Lavender, and many more!
