smells like 2008

The Delaware History Museum is selling a Joe Biden-scented candle

Joe Biden candle.

Former Vice President Joe Biden smells like orange Gatorade.

Well, that's true if a certain "Joe Biden-scented candle" sold at the Delaware History Museum is to be trusted. The candle, which Delaware Online kindly brought to the world's attention, features a very descriptive label:

The Joe Biden-Scented Candle is more than just a candle that vaguely resembles Joe Biden. It's also a friend, a confidante (at least as much as any other inanimate object), and a mentor (if you're trying to be a candle). You'll feel your hope and optimism being restored as you lift the lid and inhale the aroma of Biden’s favorite orange-flavored sports drink.

Yes, Biden affirmed his love of orange Gatorade to US Weekly in 2016 — though his love of Syracuse University's Orange shouldn't be overlooked either. This eau de Biden costs $22 at the Delaware History Museum, but for those who aren't looking to take the Amtrak to Wilmington, Delaware, they're also sold online.
