McDonald’s has what’s called the “Quarter Pounder Fan Club.” The whole restaurant chain is as un-vegan-friendly as they come, and this club goes to show just that. However, some believe these candles, offered exclusively to members of the Quarter Pounder Club, are actually a positive move for veganism.
For the fan club, McDonald’s released a set of 6 candles. Supposedly, when burned together they smell like a Quarter Pounder.
The individual scents include: Bun, Ketchup, Pickle, Cheese, Onion, 100% Fresh Beef.
While this combination may make some of us queasy, there’s a fair share of vegans (and aspiring vegans) who once enjoyed McDonald’s and the Quarter Pounders. These candles may actually be a great thing, allowing people to indulge in the scent of animal cruelty without actually partaking in it! It could go the other way, too, though. These candles could encourage people to actually go to McDonald’s and buy a burger.
We’re firm believers that everyone is different and unique. What works for some people may not work for others and vice versa. If these candles help someone to enjoy the experience of McDonald’s without actually eating or purchasing the food, we’re all for them!
