Who doesn’t love the smell of a fresh, floral candle on a warm spring day? Trader Joe’s understands, which is why the store brought back a customer-favorite candle scent that has shoppers running to the store to stock up: the Peony Blossom scented candle.

Made with a soy wax blend and a nontoxic cotton wick, these candles are sold in 6-ounce copper-colored tins. Burn this candle for the fresh smell of peony flowers in the air, just like you’re taking a walk through your local botanical gardens on a spring day. The candle’s instructions say to burn it for two hours to get that maximum scent, then blow it out to cool and use for another day. Each of these candles are sold for $3.99 each.

While these candles do carry the scent of the delicate peony flower, the running joke for shoppers at Trader Joe’s is how this candle is frequently called the “peanut butter candle.” Why? Because the label sports a light-brown PB color that could easily confuse customers from a distance. The small black lettering across the label makes it clear that PB stands for “peony blossom,” but from a distance where the smaller lettering isn’t as legible, Trader Joe’s shoppers can easily mistake it as a peanut butter-scented candle.

Regardless, customers are ecstatic that the Peony Blossom candle is back, saying that they’ve “been waiting” for it to return and they can’t wait to stock up immediately. Some customers also say the matching soap with the same scent is also worth stocking up on, so maybe give your kitchen the ultimate upgrade with a new candle and soap to match.

Trader Joe’s might not be the spot you think to shop for candles, yet the discount retailer is constantly adding new scents to its shelves. For just $4 each, you can buy all kinds of delicious scented candles, from grapefruit in the spring to vanilla pumpkin in the fall.
