Flick Candles Smell Like One Night Stands, Foreclosure And Frat House Basements

We've seen our share of quirky candles here at HuffPost Home. Who can forget the "sweaty, gruff, hyper-masculine" Man Candles we tested a couple years back? Or the "interesting" food-scented ones that just won't seem to go away. (It was just last month that the Girl Scouts debuted a collection with Yankee Candles inspired by their signature sweets.) And while some of us are into candles we'd like to eat, others prefer the "fresh scent of failed marriages, criminal activity, and unexpected weight gain."


Flick Candles, a company that "prides itself on being the only candle company in America brave enough to celebrate these rather unsavory moments," has made it a possibility.

The company first gained notoriety for its "Freshly Signed Divorce Papers" candle, which "captures the rich parchment of a legal document declaring an end to your failed marriage," according to the company's site. Certain candles -- like Thanksgiving Dinner for One (already sold out), Gingerbread Broken Home, Nicotine Pumpkin Patch and Fantasy Football Failure are going to be retired in March. But don't fret too much, as the company will preview even more new candles very soon.

    The worst part about this candle is that it's not even Jolly Rancher's best flavor.
