Ah, there’s nothing like sitting down on the couch with a blanket, a cup of tea, and the aroma of chaos with a side of fries. If you just can’t get enough of Toronto’s wildest McDonald’s or are looking for a gift for a friend that’ll bring back some hilarious memories, you can now get it in candle-form.
Local candlemaker Catherine & Co. sells a scented candle that smells like the infamous McDonald’s at the corner of Queen St. W and Spadina Ave. For those of us who have more than a few unforgettable late-night memories there, the description is all too releatable.
“It’s 1 am and everything is closed. In spite of this, you find yourself at the McDonald’s on the corner of Queen & Spadina Avenue, the most chaotic place on Earth after a great night out,” it says.
“You place an order for a Big Mac meal and wonder if today is the day that you’ll finally see a fight break out between two girls who accidentally bumped into one another. Unfortunately, it’s a stabbing. At least your fries are fresh… right?”

Don’t worry, though, the soy wax candle doesn’t actually smell like drunk fights and spilled McNuggets. The fragrance notes are “sea salt, coconut, caramelized sugar, vanilla, coffee beans, caramel, monk fruit, brown sugar, and amber.”
This isn’t the only Toronto-themed candle for sale, either. You can get one that smells like the city’s favourite drag bar Crews & Tangos, or the sticky and sweaty odour of Midland TTC station. You can even get a Cuffing Season candle to get you ready for Toronto’s brutal early winter.
All of these candles are part of the company’s Toronto Collection, made for those of us who have a love-hate relationship with our wild city.
It’s “inspired by every school trip, every late night adventure, the McDonald’s on the corner of Queen & Spadina and that old man who yells at you at Yonge-Dundas Square.” All we need now is a Trash Panda candle to make it complete.
