World's Largest Candle in World's Largest Candle Store

25 Greenfield Rd, South Deerfield, MA Is the correct address where the world's largest candle is located (Yankee Candle Way is the distribution center). Great big store with lots of items, along with every Yankee Candle fragrance you can think of! Plus, the Black Forest at the Yankee Candle Store.

World's Largest Candle in World's Largest Candle Store

It's like a free theme park, but without rides. Way more than candles - it has stuff for sale that you didn't know you needed. Titanic ice cube trays? Pewter gargoyle statues? Hamburger Christmas tree ornaments? It's all here. And you don't technically have to buy anything but you probably will.

World's Largest Candle Store

The Yankee Candle Retail Store is the world's largest candle store and is worth a detour if you're in New England. The store features an indoor village, castle, and a candle making museum. In the "black forest" it snows year-round. Two of the strangest things in there are the Animatronic Band and a Santa that you can visit every day of the year. If you go there, make sure you see the "King Candle" which is a 1,377 pound candle that would burn for 7 1/2 years!

The animatronic band, which formerly stood in the FAO Schwartz toy store in New York City, has now moved to the Toy and Plastic Brick Museum in Bellaire, Ohio.
