McDonald's has been getting a little wacky lately in their efforts to promote the Quarter Pounder. For starters, there is the Quarter Pounder Fan Club. Huh? A fan club? Look, I enjoy an occassional QP with cheese as much as the next guy, but honestly I try not to hit the Golden Arches very often. Everyone knows it's not healthy, with most of their offerings filled with enough sodium and fat to cover an entire days recommended daily allowance. And while it usually tastes pretty good, I always feel like crap an hour or so afterwards.

It kind of blows my mind that there are enough people out there that are so passionate about McDonald's that they would buy Quarter Pounder branded merchandise. Apparently there are. The six-candle Quarter Pounder candle set is currently sold out. The item description states:

  • Set of 6 custom scented candles in glass containers, inspired by Quarter Pounder  ingredients: Bun, Ketchup, Pickle, Cheese, Onion, 100% Fresh Beef**

  • Burn together for maximum deliciousness

While the candle set is sold out, hardcore McDonald's fans can still purchase a World Famous Fries Journal, a Big Mac cosmetics bag, or the World Famous Fries Socks ($20 + free shipping) because "feet get hungry too".
