The best scented candles not only make your house smell good, but also evoke certain memories or feelings.

Who hasn’t felt transported to their favorite vacation destination by lighting a beach-scented candle, or been reminded of warm memories baking with a relative via a cookie-scented candle? If you’re the type that equates summer with a good, old-fashioned barbecue, you’re going to want to snag some meat-scented candles that will make your house smell like a backyard party all year long.

Yep, candles that smell like meats.

Just in time for Father’s Day on June 17, A.1. has launched three meat-scented candles: Original Meat, Backyard BBQ and Classic Burger.

While they certainly aren’t the most conventional of candle scents, they sound pretty perfect for someone who prefers to spend their summer in front of the grill. The candles are being sold online for $14.99 while supplies last. The candles are 9 ounces each and should burn for 50-70 hours, according to A.1. maker Kraft Heinz.

That’s a whole lot of meat-scented goodness!

In a press release, the company makes the case that the candles would be a perfect gift for dad this Father’s Day.

“A.1. Meat Scented Candles make for a truly unique gift that celebrates Dad, evokes memories of fathers cooking, grilling and using A.1. sauce for all grilling occasions … and of course smells amazing,” Kraft Heinz boasts.

Of course, these are not the only candles aimed at meat lovers out there. In 2016, Kentucky Fried Chicken made a splash when it decided to give away fried chicken-scented candles.

And Candeo Candle makes a hickory-smoked bacon-scented candle that’s available on Amazon for $13.99. OK, now I’m just getting hungry! These food-scented candles would also make for a great way to trick guests at your home into thinking you have a yummy meal waiting for them. On second thought, that may be slightly cruel.

What do you think? Would meat-scented candles make you hungry for a rare steak, or have you wondering who forgot to throw out the garbage?
