It seems like the very important candle news just won't stop coming in.

It's a record breaking day!

My little mulled cider scent candle died a minute ago...it lasted for 23 hours 33 minutes! A full 2:33 more than the previous record for these little fellas. I couldn't be more proud of it's performance.

Bad news guys, they were out of all the good scents for small candles at Walmart today.

I was forced to buy 2 of the big guys, proven to be less cost effective than my normal little fellas. Anyway, I wound up with 2 pineapple lily scent 20oz'ers.

Last night was a sad evening. My beautiful 20oz pumpkin spice big boy candle burnt through its last bit of wax.

However, as is always the case with candles, there is a silver lining. It's time to talk candle stats!

My little guys are $0.94 and burn for about 21 hours. The big boy was $4 something. Let's review its burning schedule:

10.2 - 21 hours
10.3 - 17 hours
10.4 - 14 hours
10.5 - 14 hours
10.6 - 17 hours

for a grand total of 83 hours of joyous burn time.

Divide that by the 21 hours my little guys burn and you get 3.95. So it costs more than 4 small candles and burns for less time. I should stick with my $0.94 friends that treat me so well.

Speaking of my small friends, I just started a new scent: apple pumpkin! What a delightful day it will surely be (don't call me Shirley).

Oh it's a big day for big candle news!

This last 20oz guy lasted 88.5 hours. That's up 5.5 hours from the last one I timed. The big one is still more expensive than the small ones in terms of burn time but it's getting closer now.
