Why edible candles?
Created by North Shore mom, Loree Sandler, the idea of edible candles came after her youngest son’s 12th birthday party. While his face glowed behind the lovely cake they had baked together, Loree watched the waxy little candles killing themselves on the freshly whipped icing. Generic, mass-produced and entirely artificial, the candles didn’t deserve the pedestal upon which they puddled.
Can you eat the wick?
Please do not eat the wick. The wick is paraffin-coated natural cotton. After singing, wishing and blowing, there is only a nub of wick left to remove. Wait a moment before plucking it out or eating around it. Paraffin is FDA approved (and often used to coat fruit).
Why a box of 3?
Either you can reflect and celebrate your past, present and future, or you can grant someone 3 wishes!
Loree is trained as an architect, and as one devoted to details, she knew the birthday candles were ripe for revision… and thus began her journey to improve upon a tired tradition.
