Going to IKEA is a thrilling experience for those who love the Swedish furniture giant. Traversing those aisles and buying things that you don’t need. Wondering when you will have time to put said things together. It is all quite the adventure. But, for some people, the best part of heading to IKEA might be the meatballs. The smell wafts through the air, enticing you to stop by and pick up a few to shovel into your face before you leave. IKEA knows the power of its meatballs and wants you to think about them, even when you aren’t in a store. How can they do this? With a HUVUDROLL meatball scented candle, of course.
According to USA Today, IKEA will offer the delicious-smelling candle as a part of its IKEA Store in a Box package. The collection of items aim to recreate the experience of being in one of their stores. Right now, the rest of the products outside of this candle are unknown.
But we do know that the box is a part of an upcoming sweepstakes celebrating the 10th anniversary of IKEA’s US Family Program. The free program gives away special offers and rewards to participants.
The sweepstakes will run from August 6 until August 22. (More details will presumably become available that day.) Unfortunately, there are only 1,925 candles available to win overall, so this is a limited-edition item for now. But, perhaps IKEA will step into the weird scent light and make this product available to purchase.
We deserve to smell this scent whenever we get a hankering for some meatballs. For now, those lucky people who score one will have bragging rights for the candle. And, who knows, perhaps it will become some sort of collectors’ item that future generations can observe and wonder why we were so strange.
