launched a new lemonade-scented candle inspired by fans who "accidentally" fill their water cups with lemonade. The limited-edition lemonade-scented soy candle is designed to look like a Chipotle water cup. The "water” cup candle will be available for purchase on the Chipotle Goods online store while supplies last.
In response to many social posts on the topic of "accidentally" filling their complimentary water cups with lemonade at the restaurant's beverage station, Chipotle has acknowledged these "accidents" in a series of tweets over the years. Now, they have released the candle to pay tribute.
"Social is the premier destination for us to listen to and engage with our superfans," says Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer, Chipotle. "When they see these lighthearted tributes to social chatter and fan behavior, they feel even more connected to Chipotle."
This is not the first time Chipotle has turned an online conversation into a real product.
