However, many Ohioans have come to the state’s defense on social media, while also calling out the company.

Other social media users have called Simple Nature out, stating that Indiana has nothing.

“The best part of this candle is it’s made in Indiana. Indiana saying Ohio has nothing. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Pro Football Hall of Fame, Cedar Point, just to name a few. What the **** does Indiana have? Maybe their candle should just be an empty jar,” Jonas Smith tweeted.

Another user argued that the only people who can talk badly about Ohio are the people from Ohio.

The Ohio candle can be purchased online for $15.95.

Like all of Simple Nature’s candles, the Ohio candle is paraffin-free. It contains 100% natural soy wax, phthalate-free and essential oil-infused fragrance oils.  The soy wax is all natural and vegetable based.
