These Candy-Striped Candles Are Good Enough to Eat

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked editorial director Izzy Grinspan.

Striped taper candles, $24 at LEIF

You know the Pinterest apartment of our collective dreams? The one with all the sunshine and the succulents and the tasteful pops of neon? That apartment, it turns out, could be furnished entirely with home goods from Brooklyn e-commerce site LEIF. I love pretty much all of it, but the candles above stand out for me because they're so dang cheerful. For $24, you get a pair of made-in-the-US tapers in colors that forecast sunny days ahead. Even the color names sound like warmer weather: flamingo, seafoam, and daffodil are three of the options.
