Qdoba Just Launched a Queso-Scented Candle for All of You Cheese Lovers

It's the cheesiest White Elephant gift on the market.

Qdoba wants to make your home smell amazing—and that means smelling like cheese. Starting at 1:00 p.m. today, the queso king will be adding a queso-scented candle to its lineup of products available online at the Qdoba Shop.

The shop is already stacked with merchandise, including a Diablos Nachos T-shirt and a canvas tote bag. However, a queso-scented candle—let alone a candle—will be a first for the company.

The bright, neon-orange candle is supposed to mimic the scent of Qdoba's creamy three-cheese queso (a blend of American, cheddar, and Monterey jack cheeses). While this candle may not pair well with all of your other festive winter candles—like those Bath & Body Works kinds that smell exactly like freshly baked Christmas cookies—it will make a great stocking stuffer for your friends who just can't get enough cheese. And, at just $10, it makes the cheesiest White Elephant gift—literally. You and your loved ones may not be able to dip your chips in this queso, but you can at least enjoy the cheesy scent together in front of a roaring fire!

Qdoba isn't the only brand that's rolling out products that will make your house smell like your favorite foods. Last week, KFC brought back its beloved 11 Herbs & Spices Fire Log, which emulates the smell of its irresistible fried chicken. (It ended up selling out within a matter of hours at Walmart.) And this week, Taco Bell Canada officially sold out of their Crunchwrap-scented wrapping paper, which truly smells like the real thing, sour cream and all. (Not to worry: Taco Bell's Own Taco Shop can hook you up with other Live Más items for the holidays.) And if you need a stocking to put all of these presents in, direct yourself to McDonald's stacked Smilermakers shop, which features a Golden Arches-branded mini stockings set in its Smilemakers shop.
