Introduction to my review:
Did you know that Kool-Aid originated in Hastings Nebraska? And that’s where Barn Candle Co is located. Every year, Hastings has a Kool-Aid festival and Barn Candle Co was nominated to create the “Official Candle of Kool-Aid Days” – How KOOL is that?? They named their candle Tropical Punch due to trademark issues but once you smell this mouthwatering candle, you’ll know it smells EXACTLY like that classic red Kool-Aid drink we all loved as kids. I know I did!!

What did my candle look and smell like?
The wax color of my candle was a deep cherry red – a perfect color to match this fragrance. There was no label on the candle which was nice (I like that)… a book of matches with the Barn Candle logo on the matches was held onto the neck of the candle with a clear rubber band. I think that’s what serves as the company label which I found pretty clever. The lid was black and made of a light metal that screws onto the candle. Barn Candle Co is also embossed all around the lids rim with a round kraft label in the center with the scent name. Very simply done.
Here is the scent description for Tropical Punch:
“Bring on Summer and a cold glass of Kool-Aid! This fragrance smells like cherry, strawberry, and orange with a touch of lemon lime thrown in for good measure. These candles are delightfully sweet and strong without being overwhelming.”
Mmmmm!! Smelling this candle really had me craving a glass of tropical punch… it smelled so realistic…. just like the classic red Kool-Aid drink… can you taste it?
Because this candle was a small mason jar, I decided to burn it in a small bathroom which ended up being a good call. The scent throw was medium and filled the small room with the perfect amount of fragrance. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d say this candle was a 6+ and that‘s burning it in a small bathroom. Not super saturation strong but decent.
The scent… tropical punch all the way. The overall scent reminded me of those Big Stick popsicles I loved as a kid… do you remember those? They were huge with swirls of orange, yellow and red and they always turned my mouth a dark red. It’s amazing how fragrance can bring back such fond memories and that’s what this candle did for me. I had a lot of fun with this one.
So if you were a Kool-Aid fan as a kid… this is a great candle to try. It smelled just like the classic tropical punch drink.
My candle burned perfect. No wick issues, full melt pools and no wasted wax
Closing to my review:
I believe this is a limited addition scent so not sure how long you can purchase this fragrance if you were interested. I checked and it is on their website to purchase.
I have two more fragrances to review from Barn Candles so watch for those coming up. Next up will be Comfort & Joy… a festive Christmas scent that smells spicy and warm.
Happy candle hunting!!
