Target's Signature Soy Candles

I recently earned a $10 Target gift card using the Shopkick app. I heard about Target's Signature Soy Candles from Marlena and wanted to give them a try.

They come in two sizes: small which is a really cute accent size and large which is a standard jar candle size. The large is $10 and the small is $5. The large candle is the better buy, when you compare the price per ounce.

I liked the Marshmallow Pop and Sea Salt & Caramel Corn scents best. I purchased the Sea Salt & Caramel Corn large candle. It smells like caramel popcorn on the boardwalk. Instant summer memories! The wax is made of soy and looks similar to Bath & Body Works Candles. I don't eat foods containing soy, so I was a little hesitant burning a soy based candle.

The Signature Soy candles give off a great throw, just like B&BW's candles. The large Signature Soy candle has two wicks, but B&BW has three. It burned a little less evenly than B&BW candles, but better than Yankee Candles which only have one wick. Target's are a steal compared to Yankee Candles! The scent is much more powerful, you're getting two wicks, much more even burn, no soot build up and half the price. 

Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle have a larger selection of scents than Target's, but if I ever need a candle and don't have time for a trip to the mall, Target's Signature Soy will be my go-to.

Has anyone tried the Signature Soy candles? What is your favorite scent?

  1. My boys and I always stop in the candle section of Target just to smell them all but I've never actually purchased one there. Sea Salt & Caramel Corn sounds really good.
