McDonald’s Is Releasing a Candle Collection

Happiness Is Fun

By Pauline Oliver

Happy is as happy does
When all is said and done
Truly being happy
Starts with having fun

Set those happiness endorphins free
To flood your stressed out brain
With lots of happy thoughts
To relax and ease the strain
Eat chocolate
And laugh-a-lot

Chew chilis hot and red
Wear bright colours instead

Keep a dog or a cat
Try yoga on a mat

Feel sunshine warm your being
Seek beauty for the seeing

Classical music wins by miles
Exchanging lots of smiles

That's how to raise your spirit
Lift your body and your mind
This daily dose of happiness
Is a pleasure - you will find.

So McDonald’s just announced a six candle collection, each scented like one of the ingredients that go into making a Quarter Pounder with cheese. The bun, the ketchup, the pickle, the cheese, the onion, and the 100% Fresh Beef. The set is made using “soy wax blend, fine fragrance, essential oil, cotton wick” and you are encouraged to burn all six at once “for maximum deliciousness.”



Dunkin’ Donuts worked with Homesick to launch a collection of three doughnut-scented candles. So clearly there is a market for fast food scented candles.
