There are many definitions for the work “Jackpot” and some of them were bewildering when I started to look them up, but the one that most people associate with jackpot is something really great…getting a very large payoff. That’s what I’m talking about today. Jackpot Candles is a family owned and operated candle manufacturer in Buffalo, New York, that has trendy candles with that “something extra” women are loving these days — these candles have a piece of jewelry embedded into the candle. As the candle burns down a foil packette is revealed. Inside will be a piece of jewelry worth anywhere from $15.00 and for a lucky winner who “hits the jackpot”, potentially a piece worth $5,000!
But there’s more: the new trend is to offer that little something extra — that something exciting inside…and in this case it’s more than just one thing, it’s either a ring, earrings, or a necklace. The Advice Sisters have reviewed other candles that do this, but with Jackpot candles you can decide whether you want earrings, a ring, or the necklace. If you are giving this as a gift however, the expectation is heightened because your recipient won’t know what you’ve selected! Note, you can also choose the ring size (6.7.8, or 9) you want, a real plus, since with other “surprise” candles I’ve received nice rings in sizes way too large for me to ever wear. While you don’t get a choice of the earrings or necklace, they’re bound to be nice, and it’s a surprise, after all.
