If North Dakota Had A Scented Candle, What Would It Smell Like?
I kind of forgot about writing this story. I actually asked this question on-air and on our station, Facebook pages a while back. "If North Dakota had a scented candle, what would it smell like?" Hmmm, as usual, our listeners and readers had some comical answers. I took the time to tally the votes and here are the Top 10 answers!
#10 Fireworks Smoke!
Let's face it, we love our Fireworks in North Dakota and especially in Bismarck, Mandan and Lincoln. The 4th of July should really be a week-long celebration. Wait a minute, it basically is.
#9 Fresh Cut Hay
If you have allergies, this probably wouldn't be for you. Me, I LOVE it! I would so buy this candle. Fall is my favorite season and I absolutely love this smell.
I really hope we can get out of this dry period because I do love the smell after a good thunderstorm. We had so few thunderstorms the last couple of years and I really miss it when nature gets violent. Let's hope we get to smell that a lot this summer.
#7 Kneffla Soup
I've never tried it before, so I can't really say I get this one. I was raised in the eastern part of the state and it's not really a thing. I guess I'll have to run down to Kroll's Diner one of these days and give it a whirl!
#6 Alfalfa Field
Another one I've always loved being an outdoorsman! Count me in on this candle.
Who doesn't want a cow manure candle? Just about every day when I go to work, I catch a whiff of this thanks to KIST. LOL!
I'm probably alone on this one, but I've never been a fan of the lilac smell. I hate the bushes too, as they're a pain to keep up.
#3 Mosquito Spray
Nothing like the aroma of Deep Woods Off. Mosquitos haven't been much of an issue with our dry weather of late. Hopefully, that will change. I would trade the "buzz" for some moisture.
#2 Ranch Dressing
Had to giggle on this one. Seems like everybody in North Dakota LOVES ranch dressing on just about everything. Just don't mix it with ketchup. That's GROSS!
#1 Busch Light/Busch Light Farts
I had to bust a gut on this one. No doubt, North Dakota's favorite beer is Busch Light. Especially in Bismarck Mandan. It's almost like a religion. And, with drinking beer comes gas, thus the Busch Light farts. I'll pass on this candle!
