Please help me find the title of this book.

KidsBookFilter: I've been racking my brain for hours trying to dredge up the title of a book I read sometime in the 90's while in elementary (or possibly middle) school. I remember very little of the plot and sparse details beyond that: at some point the main character's personal clubhouse was vandalized by a classmate--with mustard.

I believe there was much retaliation in-kind by the protagonist and her friends, also involving condiments (a baggie of mustard? That seems to be a particularly vivid image), and that someone was called out as a "punctilious pig" on their classroom's chalkboard.

Usually my Google-fu is strong, but this one's got me stumped, so I'm hoping the hive mind has the answer that's eluding my grasp.

Was it any of the Clue Jr. books? They have a character in them named Mustard.
