Candles are fine. I like 'em. They come in really handy when the electricity goes out and my flashlight is dead.

Yes, I'm being a little facetious. They ARE good for that, but, yes I do like certain candles--so long as they smell like the outdoors or fresh linen. You know, pine or rain or something. NOT floral though. ANYTHING but floral.

Welllll....ALMOST anything. While I do enjoy those that smell like cinnamon rolls or vanilla, those scents can be a little strong just lingering in the air.

So, it isn't likely I'm going to be purchasing Dr. Pepper scented candles anytime soon. For one thing, I have NEVER been a fan. And I'll admit that's odd because I really like DIET Dr. Pepper. I don't drink sodas so I'll have one occasionally as a treat. Yeah, I guess it's not the greatest admission in the world that an ARTIFICIAL sweetener is the difference I need, but it is.

As far as I'm concerned, regular Dr. Pepper is good for one thing and one thing only--to pour over a ham before you bake it. In fact, it's the BEST soda to use for that purpose, in my opinion. But I can't drink it.

Oh I used to when I was a kid but somewhere along the way it just got to be too much for me and now I can't stand it. I would, however, like to know what that flavor is, but you know soda manufacturers. They guard those recipes with their lives.

But, no, there will be no Dr. Pepper candles in my home, even though I love the idea that they're in actual soda cans.

Oh, and if you do the Dew, there are Mountain Dew candles as well.

I wonder if they make you as wired as the drink does.
