Country Lights Soy Candles
Country Lights Soy Candles started making candles as a hobby in 1999. At first, the candles were a soy/petroleum mix. After some experimenting, we were happy to go to a 100% soy candle. It did not take long for us to realize that soy candles were becoming very popular. Our "factory" is located on our family's Centennial Farm in north central Illinois. All of the candles are hand poured by family members.
Our menu is packed with flavor of Mexican & American food. Daily specials incorporate seasonal, local vegetables. Our recipes are authentic and made Taco Stan's way. The ingredients are always fresh. From delicious appetizers to our famous Taco Stan-which to Fried Ice Cream, your meal will be one of a kind.
