Our first thought was … it’s not April 1 … but, in solidarity with the thousands of Aussies going alcohol free during Dry July, Menulog has launched a range of alcohol scented candles.
The online food delivery service will be delivering some of the nation’s favourite tipples – in the form of a candle – to hangover-free homes around the country throughout July.
The Scentsational Alcohol Candle range features five bespoke flavours including Mulled Wine, Champagne Cocktail, Scotch Whisky, Espresso Martini and Pink Apple Cider, which have all been carefully paired with a flavour-matched meal deal.
The ‘beverage’ pairings match the complexity of the dishes, acting as an integral extension of the meal by bringing a sensory element to each delivery order.
Available from the July 1, Menulog customers will be able to order a free candle alongside its perfect food pairing from restaurants around Australia, exclusively via the platform until stocks last.
Menulog’s Dry July Scentsational Alcohol Candle Range features:

Menulog’s Marketing Director, Simon Cheng, said: “Working closely with our restaurant partners, we have created a fun and playful way to pair some of our restaurant partners’ most popular dishes with an alcohol-scented candle, to help Aussies get through their alcohol free month.
“Playing on the traditional food and wine pairing, the candles are designed to be a way for customers to enjoy these flavours, without actually having a drink!”
The limited-edition Dry July range will be available exclusively on Menulog from July 1 – 31 July, while stocks last.
