SAN ANTONIO – It’s no secret that everybody loves H-E-B’s butter tortillas, but it may surprise you to learn that you can now buy a candle scented like those famous tortillas.
That’s right, your home can smell like fresh tortillas anytime you want.
The famous tortillas were the idea of an H-E-B executive who saw the need for tortillas made fresh inside the grocery store nearly 40 years ago. That idea turned into in-store tortillerias in H-E-B locations across Texas.
Known to come in packs of 10 or 20, the butter tortillas are one of H-E-B’s most popular items. It’s not the only edible item the store has captured in candle form, though.
If you happen to not be a butter tortilla fan, there are scents like two-bite brownie, homemade vanilla ice cream, cowboy cookie and blueberry muffin to choose from in 4 oz. and 14 oz. jars.
Other flavorful scents can be found on the H-E-B site here.
