i saw a science experiment where a candle was brought out, which looked like a
typical candle, white cylindrical and thinnish. the professor then proceeded to
light the candle, however the wick was not actually on fire, but it looked like
it was. he then blew the candle out, and proceeded to take a bite out of the
candle and ate it. 

any idea what the candle was made of?
