We all have our own preferences when it comes to decorating our home but one particular piece of home deco has caused quite the fuss online.
One Reddit user snapped a pic of the raunchy pillar candles with the caption: "Ok, didn't expect to see this at Kmart today..."
The candles, to be absolutely fair, did look like a stash of pale pink dildos.
The Reddit user jokingly continued: "Since when did Kmart start selling sex toys?"
People clearly couldn't wait to share their reactions to the bizarre candle design, with one person writing: "They really do sell everything at Kmart."
"Funny looking candles," penned a second, while a third quipped: "Heat up your love life with these!"
A fourth chimed in: "Talk about burning the candle at both ends!"
"Ribbed for her pleasure," joked a fifth.
Someone else piped up: "I've got a date with Mr Slightly To The Left."
"There's a reason why a lot of candle sticks aren't pink," declared another, while a final Reddit user added: "Thanks, I hate my brain."
I'll never see candles the same ever again...
In other candle-related news, one doctor has issued an urgent warning against using scented candles indoors.
"Dr Zade here, and if you're using this one thing in your house," he told his viewers in October.
"You need to stop right now.
"What's that one thing? Scented candles."
He went on to explain that, because a lot of these fragranced products are made from paraffin which when burnt, releases toxic chemicals.
He describes these harmful fumes as 'not good for us' before adding: "Along with that, the fragrances in the chemicals can be super irritating."
Dr Zade continued: "A lot of people can get eyelid rashes or other skin rashes because of these fragrances.
"So, we do not like scented candles so try to remove them from your house."
Many homeowners have since taken to the comments to hit out at the medics' remarks with some believing that social media health warnings may have gone a step too far.
"Not all candles are paraffin. We love scented candles," one user hit out.
Another slammed the TikTok doctor: "No candles now? This is the very last straw on the fun bus of life and I just can't."
"At this point I don’t even know if I’m s*****g correctly," a third jibed.
Others, however, thanked the online star for his health warning, with many sharing their own scented candle horror stories.
One penned: "Not me sitting here with an eyelid rash wondering how I got it."
Another commented: "Not to mention soot. It’s being breathed in and coating the lungs."
