Spooky Halloween Candle, retail $3.99 (www.groceryoutlet.com*)

Last updated 09-26-13

This is a battery-operated "candle" made out of plastic that is intended for seasonal use (Halloween in this case).

It has a miniature (probably a, "grain of wheat") incandescent bulb inside that illuminates not only the orange "flame" but the greenish 'flecked' candlestick itself as well. The spookiness is enhanced by the fact that the candle's base looks like skulls in a graveyard and the candlestick portion looks like it's being grabbed by a skeletonised arm & hand rising from the skulls on the ground.

* Product was not found on the Grocery Outlet website mainly because there is no site 'search' function visible, so this URL simply leads to their, "front door".


The Spooky Halloween Candle is almost ready to use as soon as you purchase it; all you need do to activate it is pull that small plastic tab out from the battery door on the product's underside and then dispose of it.

On the bottom of the "candle", there's a black on/off switch.
Slide it toward the "on" position as embossed into the area around the switch.

Slide it toward the "off" position as embossed into the area around the switch in order to neutralise it

To feed the hungry, hungry candle, unclip the battery door on the bottom of the product, lift it off, carry it to a graveyard, gently place it into an open grave, and wait for the yucky stinky zombies to find it. They'll soon see where it is, get all pissed at it, and start stomping it or even uranate on it...
O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the two used CR2032 coin cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Install two new CR2032 lithium coin cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) negatives face outward toward you.

Place the battery door back on, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad you didn't place that battery door at the bottom of an open grave in a graveyard crawling with slimey, stinky zombies with full pissinary bladders now?

The Spooky Halloween Candle is a household lamp, not a flashlight meant to be thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoñata (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piñata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a scanner-type device on a platform with a large readout, a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannoñata is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the Spooky Halloween Candle's web page will seem ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

UPDATE: 00-00-00

Battery powered and safe for use around flammable materials
Nice physical appearance (very spooky, which is appropriate for Helloween)


Doesn't flicker at all
Because it uses an incandescent bulb, lifetime of those small batteries will be shorter than expected
