U.K. fans of Papa Johns garlic sauce, you are in luck.

In honor of National Garlic Day (April 19), the pizza chain and The Martin Agency created a garlic butter candle. The double-wick candle, when lit, melts to become the sauce, which consumers can then dip their pizza in. The candle comes with a peel-back seal, like those on the standard dip containers. The move was inspired by edible butter candles that are popping up on TikTok.

A limited number of the candles will be given away, but consumers have to sign in to their Papa Johns rewards account to enter to win. The contest is only open to customers over 18 who are residents of England, Wales or Scotland.

Other companies have released candles tied to their brands in some way, including Ikea’s meatball candle, KFC’s gravy candle, and Chipotle’s lemonade candle.
