There's a major downside to resolving to eat healthier in the new year — beloved beverages like Dr Pepper are suddenly off limits.

But there's a way to have your Dr P and not drink it, too: indie candle maker 716 Candle Co. has a candle that smells exactly like that mysterious mix of 23 flavors that Texans know and love. The best part? It's poured into the iconic red can.

716 Candle Co. isn't just in the Dr Pepper business. They also sell candles of other sodas, plus beer cans of a wide variety. Liquor fans can nab Hot Cinnamon scented candles poured into Fireball Whisky bottles.

Of course, if all of this sounds much too tempting, they have a myriad of other scents available — from cucumber melon to "monkey farts" — which can be put into any can or bottle.

716 Candle Co. sells on Etsy as well as its own online store. The Dr Pepper candles are going fast, but we presume that a restock is just a grocery trip — and some chugging — away.
