Condiment Candles: Love It or Hate It?

The other day I came across these condiment-shaped citronella candles. Although citronella candles are a must for outdoor dining — they keep the mosquitoes away — I don't know if this ketchup, mustard, and relish set is for me. What if a younger guest mistakes one of these candles for the real thing and gets burned? On the other hand, they're kinda cute and have the potential to spark a mustard vs. ketchup debate. What do you think? Condiment candles: fire hazard or foodie fun?

Very kitschy and all, but for the money the "cuteness" would cost, I would probably just buy the citronella-in-a-bucket. If I had the extra money, though, I might buy these.

I think they'd be really cute for an outdoor picnic or bbq. I really doubt anyone would mistake these for the real thing.

I don't know. I think they're cute and probably neat for a BBQ or something. They may not smell that bad!
