    Why can't they just donate to charity without the need for producing candles?

    What a nutty idea.

    I can produce that smell in my own kitchen AND get to eat the onions slathered on my grilled steak-and-cheese sandwich. And yes, it is a nutty idea. The candles cost $10 each - how much of that is eaten up by production, packaging, shipping, etc? They should just give money to charity and crow about it in their ads.

    Darn, I missed the definitive punchline by a inch. It should have been "mustard and ketchup candles sold separately". :biggrin:

    Nutty like a fox? Light the candle and one suddenly has the desire for a Slider?

    LOL OMG this reminds me of the "FLAME" cologne released by Burger King; it captures the "essence" of the whopper. I'm buying some of those candles for my next relaxing bath :biggrin:
