McDonald's reveals set of Quarter Pounder inspired candles

When you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, sometimes all you need is the comforting taste of the golden arches.

But, here to flip the script, McDonald’s is offering select fans an alternative solution: to burn the scent of a Quarter Pounder.

Ingredient-by-ingredient, or all at once.

Soon to launch in the USA through Golden Arches Unlimited, the Quarter Pounder Scented Candle Pack includes six candles scented for each of the iconic burger’s ingredients: bun, ketchup, pickle, cheese, onion, and beef.

The site recommends burning the candles together for “maximum deliciousness.”

While this new product by the fast-food chain is… intriguing… we’re not extremely sold on the idea of the single scents on their own. Ketchup? Do you want your living room to smell like a condiment?

“Right now, the focus of the debut of Golden Arches Unlimited is in the US, however, we look forward to potential expansion in other markets,” a spokesperson for McDonald’s told Daily Hive.

So while it’s possible these soy-wax-blend, essential-oil based, cotton-wick creations could eventually hit other countries, they’re going to be a US exclusive for now.
