Chicago Quirk's Favorite Things: The House of Crave

Fact: White Castle is the most delicious thing on the planet.

(I may have already lost you. In which case you are lame, but I ask that you keep reading.)

White Castle is definitely a Chicagoan's fast food, and for me there's nothing better than that first bite of a slider. It causes me great sadness that as a teenager I could eat 10, but now my maximum is four. Fortunately, (smooth segway into topic) I can enjoy the scent of a White Castle slider without worrying about destroying my innards. The White Castle Scented Candle!

The White Castle e-store, called House of Crave, sells these gems and various apparel and other tchotchkes. I feel that I do have to be honest and say that I haven't actually smelled this candle, and it may be a complete olfactory assault. In which case, you can choose not to light it and simply have a delighful talking piece.


  1. i'll admit i havent had white house in years... i did have a good friend in college who enjoyed a case of the burgers on his bday. he didnt look to hot afterwards... xoxo jcd

  2. Haha! I always associated White Castle with Minnesota because growing up the only person I knew who liked it was my dad who grew up in the Twin Cities.

    Now that I've gotten older, I've tried White Castle and it's really not as bad as I thought it was a child, but I'm not sure I want my house smelling like them!

  3. I'm not sure I'd want my house smelling like them either, but I still want it! :) Thanks for stopping by!
