Whether you’re a cocktail or a mocktail fan, German discount superstore Aldi has a new find you’re going to love (and no, it isn’t the $10 espresso martini mix!).  In fact, the item isn’t even edible at all — but it does smell incredible. It’s also going to be your favorite new storage vessel. No guesses? Fine, we’ll let you in on the hottest new Aldi decor secret.

The Huntington Home Cocktail Glass Candle comes in four delectable scents and colors: mojito (green), peach bellini (orange), lemon drop (yellow), and pink lady (pink). The 3.9-ounce candle will last up to 20 hours, and then that’s when the real fun begins. This luxurious curvy 4-inch glass will look as amazing glowing on your nightstand as it will filled with rings or earrings on your vanity. 

While it isn’t food-safe (bummer!), after the candle is spent, you can use the brightly colored transparent glass for all kinds of storage — for small toiletries, jewelry, matchbooks, knickknacks, or even to use as an adorable DIY Easter centerpiece if you get a few of them and fill them with flowers, foliage, and mini eggs. Of course, you could also refill it with wax to make your own candles to keep the sweet-smelling fun going or to give away as gifts.

The Huntington Home Cocktail Glass Candle is the latest Aldi candle with super versatile reusable packaging — following in the footsteps of the rustic wooden candle (that’s coming back next week!), the frosted pumpkin candle, and the mini bread pan candle. And just like the rest of the affordable, reusable candles of Aldi’s past, the cocktail glass candles won’t last long. So if you see them in stores, or especially if you have a color in mind, grab them while you can!

Like This Cocktail Glass Candle? Then You’ll Love…

If you don’t live near an Aldi (just yet!), or the candles are sold out at your local store, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Amazon has plenty of similar options that ship directly to your door! This Cosmopolitan glass cocktail candle comes in a chic red and will do the trick — or, if you’re just here for the glasses, this set of four colorful cocktail glasses is perfect. Whichever option you go for, enjoy the luxurious vibes!
