Let Them Eat Candles

EatCandleslet them eat candlesLoree Sandler and Bob Michelson hope a Shark bites on Let Them Eat Candles, their edible, chocolate candles business, in Shark Tank episode 1515. Loree got the inspiration for her edible candles at her son’s 12th birthday party. She saw the kids licking the frosting off the candles and thought “wouldn’t it be great if they could eat them?”

That led her to quit her job as an architect and enroll in Chicago’s French Pastry School and the Chocolate Academy. She learned how to create the chocolate candles, set the wicks and make packaging that pops. The candles caught the eye of Martha Stewart’s American Made contest and TheGrommet and things started to take off.

She grew slowly, but now she has her candles in hundreds of stores nationwide. They’re also available on Amazon. She’s sold over 1.5 million candles to date. At 16.95 for 3 candles, they’re more expensive than regular birthday candles, but regular candles don’t taste as good. Loree and Bob likely want a Shark’s help getting into more stores.
