I always have at least one scented candle in my house. Usually more. I’m a huge fan of Yankee Candles as they last and smell amazing! They have numerous scents that are just fresh smelling, and their scents usually aren’t too overpowering. Target is now selling a line of breakfast-scented candles and I wanna try them!

Cereal is one of my favorite meals. There are many times, especially in the summer, that I’ll have a bowl for dinner. When it’s too hot to cook, it’s the perfect meal. As a kid I loved the sweet cereals, especially Cocoa-Krispies. I’m a big chocolate fan! As an adult, I usually eat cereals that are “healthier”. Grape Nuts is a favorite of mine. It’s great with fresh berries and it’s a great topper for yogurt. Lots of times I’ll mix two cereals together such as Grape Nuts and Honey Nut Cheerios. Yum!

And one of the cereal-scented candles Target is selling is Honey Nut Cheerios. According to FoodBeast, Target now has five cereal-scented candles available. The scents are inspired by Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix, Cocoa Puffs and Honey Nut Cheerios. All of the candles are available at Target stores nationwide as well as The come in a range of sizes, and there’s also two gift set options available.

Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices, and often I’ll put it in my coffee. I think the Cinnamon Toast Crunch candle may smell awesome! I’m not a fan of the cereal, but I love the smell of cinnamon. The Lucky Charms and the Trix scents may be too sweet-smelling for me.

As luck would have it, I have plans to hit Target today to grab some household items so I’m going to look for the candles while I’m there. They aren’t too pricey. They’re going for $5-$10, depending on the size you get. I’ll report back after I try a few scents!
