Shoppers are racing to Aldi to bag bargain candles that make you home smell like the nicest Starbucks drinks | The Sun
Nothing says the return of autumn quite like the taste and smell of pumpkin spice.
The popular flavour is now a complete seasonal staple, not least because of the popularity of Starbucks’ viral Pumpkin Spice Latte.
And now fans of the aromatic blend can get a candle that will infuse their whole home with the smell of autumn, perfect for the miserable nights ahead.
A savvy shopper has posted about a new range of candles she eyed in Aldi in the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains.
Each one is inspired by one of Stabucks’ staple autumnal flavours, and is priced at a very reasonable £3.99.
Canny customer Lydia shared pictures of the flavours Pumpkin Spice, Caramelised Maple and Apple Fudge, which come in gorgeous orange, red and yellow shades to resemble the seasonal colourway.
