A couple of years ago I was so excited when my Halloween Kringle Candles arrived in Texas. In mid-July 2020, the Kringle Candle Company had a special sale for their Halloween Kringle Tumblers. I believe, they could be ordered only for several hours before the sale was over. Kringle Candle Co. had different Halloween candles later in the year, but I wanted to get my fingers on those black tumbler candles. In July of that year, I got an email from them saying when they have the sale ready for the Kringle tumblers. Me being crazy for Halloween and candles had to go for that deal. The online store had plenty of selections to choose from them. However, I went for four different scents and purchased six candles in total.
- 2 Witches Cauldron
- 2 Graveyard Night
- 1 Black Cat
- 1 Day of the Dead (Día the los Muertos)
Who is this Kringle Candle Company?
The original founder of the Kringle Candle Co. was no other than Michael Kittredge II himself. He was also the founder of the Yankee Candle Co., which is in business since 1969. After almost thirty years of selling candles all over the world, Michael Kittredge II sold the Yankee Candle Co. to Forstmann, Little & Co. back in 1998. Michael Kittredge II retired from candle making.
In 2008 Michael Kittredge III, the son of the Yankee Candle Co. founder, made his own first candle. And it came naturally to him to make and sell candles himself. In 2009 the Kringle Candle Co. was born and has the flagship store with the candle factory/packing and shipping on an 18,000 sqft. property in Bernardston, Massachusetts. Over 10 years later, the company is still in business, growing its product line and sending the candles all over the United States. Many of the Kringle Candles can be also outside the USA.
Unfortunately, Michael Kittredge passed away due to cancer in Boston on July 24, 2019. He was 67 years old. May he rest in peace. And we are thankful for the millions of amazing-smelling candles over the past 50+ years.
