This morning I was just sipping my coffee, glancing at news article and headlines, checking emails and planning out my to-do list when I saw a headline about quarter-pounder cheeseburger scented candles.


Uh, what?

Yeah.  As in McDonalds fast-food scented candles that are supposedly going to be available soon.

"Now you can finally have that lingering odor of onions and fast-food beef in your house anytime you want — without even having to get take-out.

That’s right: McDonald’s has debuted a collection of Quarter Pounder with Cheese-scented candles, allegedly because "there’s no better smell than 100 percent fresh beef and a perfect combination of toppings,” the press release shared.

The collection of six scented candles, which is part of a larger assortment of Quarter Pounder-themed merchandise, comes in glass jars representing the six components of a Quarter Pounder: sesame seed bun, ketchup, pickle, cheese, onion, and 100-percent fresh beef."

I'm pretty sure I had a confused look my face when I read it.

Because... who wants that smell in their house?

No, seriously.

The second you bring a bag of McDonalds food (or Taco Bell or KFC or Captain D's, etc.) into your vehicle, the smell is going to soak into the seats, the fabric, the air... your hair and clothes... your hands where you touched the bag.

And that smell lingers long after the food is gone.

Same with your house.  The second that McDonalds bag and wrappers enter your house, the entire house will smell like your fast food.  And it's going to last.  If that bag is in your trash, the smell of your food will last until that bag is out of your house.  

One of the first things I thought when I read about people wanting that scent of McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries permeating their homes with a McDonalds scented candle is...

"All they need to do is leave their empty McDonald's wrappers, trash and bag sitting in a room of their house and the whole room will smell like whatever it is they ordered.  They don't need to buy a candle!"
