Your Home Can Now Smell Like a Quarter Pounder 24/7
Yum?   (McDonald's)

You know that heavenly smell of hamburger that wafts into your car as you're on the McDonald's drive-thru line? You can have that all day at home now, thanks to a new product offered by the fast-food chain. The Quarter Pounder Scented Candle Pack advertised on the restaurant's fan club site comes with six individually scented candles, each made to remind you of a specific Quarter Pounder ingredient: beef, bun, cheese, pickle, ketchup, and onion. If you're partial to just one of those lip-smackers, light just one candle at a time, or "burn together for maximum deliciousness."

Each candle burns for about 25 hours. "There's no better smell than 100% pure North American fresh beef and a perfect combination of topping," the chain notes in a release. Today notes that Mickey Dee's is also offering other limited-edition Quarter Pounder swag, including mittens, a bumper sticker, a calendar, and a heart-shaped locket. CNN notes the focus on the Quarter Pounder is to celebrate its nearly half-century place on the McDonald's menu. The only drawback of the candle set? It appears to be sold out at the moment on the McDonald's site; it's not clear if they'll be replenishing the inventory. (Read more McDonald's stories.)
