Know what's weird? There are so many different types of Ketchups in the world, example of just some highlights...

Yet, if you mention Ketchup to any English person they just automatically think of this and ONLY this...

You can get so many amazing natural ketchups made of ACTUAL fresh tomatoes. Heinz is just this weird sugary tomato flavored vinegar substance. Yet it's all English people know.

I've also noticed fully grown adults use it as a sort of 'backup' for when they find food tasteless. They just add ketchup to make it palatable :lol:

I think we have been through this before. Chef Ketchup is the start and the end of all discussions about ketchup.

 

I take it you're Irish?  

 

You're also WRONG *:ocontroversial:o*

One of my old housemates used to order pizzas  with a wide array of delicious toppings and then drizzle the entire thing in ketchup. It used to annoy me to a quite unreasonable degree. 

 

Also everyone at my work (I work in Huddersfield) call it "red sauce" which, to me, makes them sound like children. 

 

Regular tomato ketchup for me is right near the bottom of the condiment tier list and is only above the sauces I actively dislike. Outside of a fry up or bacon sandwich it is dead to me as a sauce because there is an unfathomably vast ocean of sauce out there waiting to be sampled and almost all of them are superior. 

 

Also do you remember when Heinz did green ketchup for a bit? I bought a bottle and never finished it because the green poster paint appearance of the sauce made it almost inedible to me even though it tasted EXACTLY the same as regular ketchup. The power of the mind.

 

I have now exhausted my possible contributions to the thread, so will close out on my new slogan. Ketchup: It's condiMENTAL.

Yeah I bought it.  Tasted one mouthful.  It was fine.  But the green colour put me off, had to bin it in the end.

I lied, I have one additional contribution. If I am eating a fry up, I would much rather it was that really shit greasy spoon ketchup that's been vinegared to hell than legit Heinz ketchup. I think it's a better contrast to the saltiness of the fry up.

You know what's weird? There's a whole sub forum on here called "Food and Drink" where people discuss things like this.

This should be in Food & Drink of course - but its Capwn so there will be a really clever underlying social or political angle/commentary to it that none of us who just think its a misplaced thread about a condiment are seeing.

 

It's so deep though it will take a special thinker to see below the apparent superficial nature.

Just put what you like on your food. I won't judge you for it.

 

Unless you're one of those savages that thinks Salad Cream belongs on anything.

Legit Heinz ketchup has gone to shit now. It tastes wrong and is really watery.

Ketchup isn't food or drink.
