Jackpot Candles Review and Giveaway! Candles + Jewelry = Love

If you like candles, jewelry and surprises this post is for you. Recently I had the opportunity to review a beautiful candle from Jackpot Candles. I also received one to giveaway - yay!



What are Jackpot Candles? 

Jackpot Candles are soy based surprise candles. Each high quality candle has a foil package embedded in it containing a piece of jewelry with a retail value of $5-$5,000. It's a pretty sweet deal.

What makes Jackpot Candles Special? 

Jackpot Candles give the purchaser the unique option of being able to order a candle in a specific ring size, unlike other brands of surprise jewelry candles such as Diamond Candles which I have mentioned here. Jackpot Candles also give you the option of choosing earrings or a necklace instead of a ring which I really appreciate. My candle had an E written on the bottom of it to indicate that it was an earring candle and the giveaway candle has an N on the bottom because it has a necklace inside.

Total Burn Time - 80-100 hours

This candle will last a long time.

I burned my candle for 8 hours straight before I felt as though the wax was low enough to grab the foil without damaging the candle. The wax was very soft but still white. If I would have waited about 3 or 4 more hours it probably would have been perfect. Since my foil pouch was still halfway lodged in white, unmelted wax it took a slight tug to remove my earrings but they came out easily and the clear wax on top settled inside the divot. I would recommend being more patient as I was lucky to have the wax resettle so nicely. Thankfully it has not affected the burn.

Scent Throw  

When the glass lid is removed the Birthday Cake candle smells wonderful even before I light it. Sugary scented candles are among my favorites so I had a feeling that I would love it. The candle's scent is strong enough to fill a small room. I would rate it's strength as medium/high compared to other candles that I have burned.

I have found that most soy candles are not quite as strong as high quality paraffin candles. I'm guessing that it has something to due to with the lower melting point of the wax. Jackpot candles are strong, just not quite as powerful as Yankee or Goose Creek candles.

Environmentally Friendly Soy 

Although I love the far reaching scent throw of paraffin candles like Yankee and Goosecreek they are not so great for the environment. Paraffin waxes are actually a byproduct of petroleum that can leave allergens and soot in the air when burnt. Unlike paraffin soy is environmentally friendly because it is easily sustainable and it doesn't produce black smoke.

Reusable Container 

The glass containers used for Jackpot Candles are a nice size for a vase. I think they would also make cute containers for a candy bar! The soy burns so cleanly that it is not too difficult to remove all of the wax residue. The sticker on the glass peels off nicely so that there is no residue behind.

Appraisal Value 

When I retrieved the package I found an appraisal code in the pouch with my earrings. Once I entered my code in the Appraise form online I found that the value of my earrings is $17. They are not sterling silver but I think that they may be stainless since they haven't bothered my sensitive ears yet. I don't think I would pay $17 for them because I usually buy only gold or silver jewelry and I rarely pay retail value. Since I wait for steep discounts before I buy jewelry, I probably wouldn't pay more than $10 for them myself.

Even thought the RTV of the earrings is pretty low I like them. I needed a new pair of  studs and I like the grey/black color of the stones. It would be nice to know if the stone is actual stone or glass. I know that it would take more time for Jackpot Candle's employees to list the identity of the stones in each piece of jewelry that they ship out but I think it would be a nice touch if the information was released along with the appraisal value. I like reading up about the properties of the colors and stones that I wear.

Overall Experience

I really enjoy my Jackpot Candle. The scent is pleasant and it was fun to discover what surprise was hiding in the candle. My whole family was excited for the big reveal! My hands smelled like birthday cake for the rest of the day after I retrieved my earrings, nom.
