Ketchup Change

Heinz Makes 1st Major Ketchup Change In 40 Years

My first thought was, oh my goodness, Heinz ketchup is the best thing Teh-ray-suh Heinz Kerry has ever done...


I guess we'll have to wait and see what the final product tastes like.

Truth is we often buy store brand, we're cheap

I do like Heinz. But I guess the ketchup industry is calling for a boost. If they screw it up, I'll just go back to DelMonte.

I didn't move back to Pittsburgh for this. This better not be like New Coke.

For some reason I usually buy Hunts ketchup. Maybe, its because I live in Pittsburgh and I don't want to help to contribute anything to the socialist pigs pocketbook.

Chuck: We buy store brand as much as possible. There's no shame in wanting to save money. It's just that in the case of ketchup, we use it so infrequently, that we allow ourselves to splurge.

Ananda Girl: If they screw up Heinz, we'll switch too.

BeckEye: Heinz is reducing sodium content by 15% and they say it makes no difference in the overall taste. Yeah right, then why have it in there in the first place?

I tasted New Coke once and that was it. We'll have to see how the ketchup tastes and then decide.

Teresa: We preferred the flavor of Heinz to Hunts, even before Teh-ray-suh came onto the scene.

So many of these corporations donate to liberal pols, we'd have to grow our own food in order to avoid them all.

This is gonna be the "new Coke" of ketchup, as mentioned previously.

Of course, I'm with Chuck on buying generic humongous size, what with three kids who put ketchup on EVERYTHING.

Hmm. This is a good thing. Less salt.

They need to ditch the corn syrup though.

I've never noticed any difference in the taste of any ketchup I've tasted. Just not a gourmet food for me I guess.

Brooke: We don't use that much ketchup which is why we reflexively buy Heinz. If the new flavor were to bomb, we'd be out of there in a New York minute.

Steve Harkonnen: You are right. Why must they put corn syrup in everything?

At May 15, 2010 5:14 PM, Blogger cube said...

Jan: Like I mentioned before, I think using Heinz ketchup became more reflexive than anything else. I remember buying Hunts once a long time ago and it didn't go over as well so I never deviated again.

It's not like we eat it all the time. I don't have little kids anymore, so a bottle goes a long way at our house.

This sounds like ad hype- they switched over to corn syrup a long time ago without heralding the change.

Dorie: It does sound a bit like they're jumping the gun on the
White House food police edicts which will be coming to every company you know in the near future.

Heinz will be able to claim the
'love me more 'cause I got rid of the evil salt first' moment when the socialist food police come knocking on corporate doors.

They can't pass up any opportunity to control our lives.
