Yes, this candle smells like Dole Whip. No, you shouldn’t eat it. Yes, I understand why you would make that mistake.

Seriously, this candle is heavenly. Other than reading your monthly copy of WDW Magazine, this candle is the best way to transport yourself to Disney World without actually being there.

Cost: $15.95 + shipping

Love the scent of Dole Whip? We’ve got a Dole Whip scratch and sniff card on sale right now in our shop. Just $4! Makes the perfect insert into a Disney Christmas card.
