You can now get a candle that will fill your house with the aroma of McDonald's cheeseburgers when you burn it.
There are a few companies in the world that are instantly recognizable no matter where you are; logos you look out for in foreign lands if you are feeling homesick and need something to comfort you. These include the likes of Coca-Cola, Nestlé, and the most reliable of them all, McDonald's.
Honestly, when is it not a good time for McDonald's? Need a quick fix and don't have the time to prepare a meal or sit in a restaurant? McDonald's. On your way home from a hard day at work and you see the golden arches? McDonald's. On a strict calorie-controlled diet and you're meticulously planning out your next meal? Okay, maybe don't opt for McDonald's in that instance.
However, if you are in that situation, we might have just the substitute for you. As reported by Metro, a company in Australia is now selling a McDonald's cheeseburger-scented candle. The candle has been appropriately named "The Maccas Run" and comes courtesy of shopping website Grey Lines. It retails for $29.95 AUD ($21.12 USD) and the best news is the company does ship the candles outside of Australia.
While the smell of a McDonald's cheeseburger might be good enough for some people, we do see one glaring flaw with the candle, and it might just be a personal one. We know from experience that when we smell McDonald's, we want to eat McDonald's. Lighting a candle that smells just like the chain's iconic cheeseburgers is just going to make us want to hop in the car and head down to Maccy D's to buy the real thing.
If McDonald's isn't your thing, then aside from us definitely not being able to be friends, Grey Lines has a few other comfort food candles that you might like the sound, or rather the smell, of. The range includes garlic bread and also good old fashioned bacon. Yankee Candles don't tend to make our mouths water, but just reading and writing about these ones has made us hungry.
