Well, now you can have the presence of those amazing Huvudrol meatballs in your house 24/7, because the home furnishings chain will be offering candles that smell like the beloved beef treat.

According to USA Today, the meatball candle, called "Huvudroll," will be offered in an IKEA Ikea Store in a Box package that will recreate the sensory experience of shopping in a store.

The box sets are being created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of IKEA's loyalty program, IKEA Family.

Customers who are not members of IKEA Family can join for free and then enter the contest to try and get one of the meatball candles.
