If you’ve ever taken a good old-fashioned road trip across the US, there’s a fair chance you’ve caught some shut-eye in a Super 8 Motel. To help you or a loved one reminisce on life on the road, the budget accommodation brand has unveiled an extra special Christmas gift — road trip-scented candles.

While we can’t tell you how good they smell, the initial reading suggests they will be extremely…nicheHere’s a list of the scents available:

  • Snack Time – Smokey, savory beef jerky, the perfect road trip snack

  • Pit Stop – Glorious gasoline, the fuel that keeps the journey going

  • Roam Free – A windows down, spirit of the open road kind-of feeling

  • Brain Freeze – Thirst-quenching cherry slushie, a truly sweet cup-holder treat

  • Lite Bite – Because every great morning starts with a little something to get you started

  • Morning Jolt – Fresh ground coffee, for those get-up-and-go kind of days.

  • Tucked In – Crisp, clean linen, essential for a super night’s sleep.

  • Fresh Feels – Fresh and reinvigorating, like a hot shower after a long day’s drive

So if you know someone that desperately wants their living room to smell like a cherry slushie or enjoys their bathroom with a slight tinge of spilled petroleum and waffles, Super 8 has your back.

The candles go on sale December 1st at the link above. The whole set will cost $19.74 – a nod to the year the brand launched. 

Personally, I love waking up to the smell of dried beef. I’m ordering four.
