Summer is almost here, and Trader Joe’s is welcoming the season by bringing back one of its beloved award-winning candles: Mango Tangerine.

The grocery chain quietly restocked its supply of the fruit-scented candle last week, with many only becoming aware of it after Instagram account @traderjoeslist posted a photo showing stacks of the bestselling product. 

“Right now, for a limited time, our stores are selling the Scented Candle that started it all: Mango Tangerine!” wrote Trader Joe’s on their own IG account. “With a TJ’s Mango Tangerine #ScentedCandle and the flick of a match, you’ll swear you’re relaxing in a tropical paradise, enjoying the citrusy summer breeze…”

The announcement, unsurprisingly, sent customers in a mad dash to refill their stash. “I bought 10, love them,” said one commenter, while others were disheartened to learn that their local TJ’s hadn’t yet stocked up on the candles, saying, “My store doesn’t have them yet!!! I can’t wait.”

What also makes the $3.99 Mango Tangerine so popular is that it’s a budget-friendly alternative to Anthropologie’s $30 Capri Blue Volcano Candle. One comment captures the sentiment of buyers perfectly: “It’s a decent dupe… the smell isn’t AS strong as Anthro’s BUT awesome for $4 bucks.”

With summer just a few weeks away, expect this product to fly off the shelves. So, better act fast and head over to your nearest Trader Joe’s store.
