Shoppers have gone wild after spotting a Yankee Candle gift set has been reduced to half price in the Tesco sale.

Earlier this week, fans of the brand alerted other shoppers to the 50 per cent saving in the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.

The ‘Autumn/Winter’ gift set includes four different sizes of candles – ranging from the smallest votive options, which retail at £2.50 each to a £27.99 large-sized jar.

What’s more, the limited edition autumn products include the orange-scented ‘Reindeer Treats’ candle, a ‘Gingerbread House’ offering and the brand’s ‘Snow Dusted Pine, which has notes of eucalyptus and cedarwood.

Although the gift set originally hit Tesco shelves for £40, savvy bargain-hunters noticed that it’s been reduced to £20 for shoppers with a Clubcard. 

After snapping up the ‘Home Inspiration’ collection, shoppers shared photos of their bargain buy with the group’s 2.1million members.

Urging others to make the most of the 50 per cent discount, one shopper wrote: ‘Saw this and purchased a couple of hours ago from Tesco. Shelf price £40, Clubcard price £20!’

Sharing a photo from their local store, another added: ‘Yankee candle set was £40 down to £20 Plymouth Tesco!’

The posts have amassed over 320 ‘likes’ in the group and members were grateful for the tip.

One replied: ‘I think I need one of these!’

Tagging a friend in the comments, another desperate shopper added: ‘Would you check if in your store please and let me know?!

Meanwhile, a third said: ‘I’ve been looking for something like this!!’

After buying one of Yankee Candle’s gift sets last year, a fourth alerted their friend to the product and wrote: ‘They are back!!’ 

However, others expressed frustration over having to apply for a store card to access the saving.

‘This is only if you have a Clubcard,’ one fumed.

Another avid shopper wrote: ‘Not as much in it, there’s usually a box of scented tea lights too.’ 

History of Yankee Candle: 

Yankee Candle Company began when Michael Kittredge was just 16 years old.

The late candle company founder couldn’t afford to buy his mother a Christmas present so he decided to make one by melting crayons on the stove to create a candle.

A neighbor later asked to purchase the candle instead, so Mr. Kittredge bought ‘enough wax to make two candles – one for his mother, and one to sell,’ according to Greenfield Recorder and began what one day would become Yankee Candle.

The scented candles took the giftware marketplace by storm and the young entrepreneur grew the business to a major international manufacturer and retailer.

By 1983 the company made its first $1 million in sales.

The Yankee Candle founder’s massive estate started off as a three-bedroom Colonial that he bought for $144,000 in 1984, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The home sat on 1.84 acres, but he continued to scoop up neighboring properties to build a compound of more than 100 acres.
