Prize Candle

I have always wanted to try one of these Prize Candles. I have loved finding treasure every since I was a little kid. I was mesmerized by pirate stories and finding hidden treasure. This isn’t exactly a buried treasure chest, but in a way is very similar! The Original Prize Candle has a prize hidden in every candle. You have to burn the candle in order to get to the prize. The prize is a ring that is worth between $10 and $5,000!

Original Prize Candle

I received a Prize Candle with the scent “Adriatic Fig.” While I was tempted to just sit and watch the candle burn, I walked away as soon as I lit it to occupy my time. I had to do something to make the time go quickly as I was very excited to see what was in my candle. The scent was very nice and is definitely something I would burn in my bathroom or living room.


Well after 45 minutes, I found out that I had gotten lucky and my prize was very close to the surface! I couldn’t wait to get it out, so I blew out the candle and used a butter knife to loosen the rest of the wax around the prize.

Prize in Candle

I was very happy to see that the prize wasn’t just in the wax, but wrapped in a bag which was inside a plastic case. It was very well protected. Now for the big reveal! What did I get?

Prize Candle Ring

What luck! My birthstone is garnet so I was pleased to pull this ring out of the bag. But how do I know what it’s worth? After looking at the ring, I didn’t see any markings and in my own opinion it looked cheaper than some nice rings I have. Prize Candle thought of everything and include a piece of paper with each ring with a prize code. You visit their website at PrizeCandle.com and enter the code to see what your ring is worth. Now the moment of truth. My ring is worth …

Prize Candle Appraisal

I had so much fun burning my candle and digging out my treasure. I can’t wait to get another candle.

    These prize candles are super fun! The thought of getting a prize at the bottom of my candle makes me feel like a little girl again. I love it!

    What a fun idea! And you are too funny! I wouldn’t have been able to wait either:) And how fun that the stone looks like your birth stone. Very cool!!

    Awesome candle! I really like that the ring was well protected within the wax. I wouldn’t want to even begin to think about how difficult it would be to properly clean if it were just in the wax.

    I want to try one too. I won one at Christmas time and was excited, but…it was Christmas time, lol, so I gifted it instead of keeping it. A prize candle is a great gift idea!

    haha I love that they’re honest with their prices even when they’re worth just $10. It would be fun and I would have totally dug mine out too.
