Butter Tortilla candle from H-E-B's new scented candle collection (H-E-B)

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.
