How much do the candles cost?

The edible candles cost £15 each, but stock is again limited, with just 1,000 available.

Emile Sinclair, Head of Innovation for Smith & Sinclair, said: “Smith & Sinclair is on a mission to make Christmas more fun and we are delighted to be launching our edible candles once again; they captured the nation’s imagination last year and we’ve had a waiting list that’s grown all year round of people wanting to hear about the product making a comeback.

“The products are completely different to anything else on the market and we have no doubt the unique selling point will get people talking about the festive candle they can drink!"
