    Who likes a good ketchup?

    Yes, this is my third thread regarding Ketchup. Figured I'd make it official.

    I don't like ketchup......I LLL---yeah whatever.

    Anyway, I just got this "Simply Heinz" from Walgreens after realizing I was out. Figured I'd just pick up any old ketchup and it'd be fine. It wasn't. This stuff was garbage. Way too sweet. Tasted like cold tomato soup. Hunt's > Heinz.

    The best ketchup I've had is by Dickenson's, though. Best shit ever. They have it at most good hotels but if you can find it in the store it is incredible stuff.

    I couldn't possibly begin to try telling the difference between brands of ketchup.

    You should have your hands removed with a sawzall for even saying that Hunt's is better than Heinz.

    I think I've said this before here, but a good cheeseburger should not need ketchup.

    Heinz is the only ketchup I'll eat. Never had the "Simply" kind before, don't know what the difference is. Like fletcher said, Hunt's is garbage.

    The "Simply" is their organic horseshit. It tastes exactly as I described. Cold tomato soup. You cannot taste any of the extra spices and shit they are supposed to put in there. All you taste is the tomato. It's too overwhelming for me.

    You do know Heinz has 57 varieties..

    I have yet to see all 57..I think I have only tried 5...and one is really sweet.
    Another is spicy..the kind I love...but I cannot find it anymore. I think the British variant is the sweet one.

    Im pretty sure the 57 varieties refers to all the condiments Heinz makes. I could be wrong though.

    You know why they have 57 varieties? Because they kept trying to make good ketchup but kept fucking it up.

    I'm kidding. I really don't mind Heinz. I consider it to be the Coca-Cola of ketchups. I'll have it if it's the only thing available and I'm fine with it. But given the choice, I go Hunt's or Dickenson's

    edit: And yes I think Fletcher is right, it's the flavors. Kinda like how Dr Pepper has so many.

    This.

    Fixed.

    Not just condiments, but all their products. Canned veggies, soups, vinegar, beans, etc. It was actually over 60, but 5 and 7 were Mr. and Mrs. Heinz's lucky numbers.

    I worked in a restaurant that switched to Hunts from Heinz. You wouldn't have believed the outrage, I had no idea there were people so picky about something they were going to fuck up their food with. We ended up having to pour it into small bowls so people wouldn't know what brand it was. People think you're "cheap" if you don't serve Heinz.

    Catsup has two purposes: French fries and as a base for cocktail sauce. That's it. If you're putting it on anything else it's because you were a picky eater as a kid so your mom put it on everything to get you to eat it. Or you cremate all your meats when you cook them to the point where there's no natural juices left and you have to dump it on there to be able to swallow it.

    Tell your mom to get on the stick. Don't want a young fella like yourself jacking up the condiments.

    When does the jam thread start? jelly thread that is, don't want to confuse you.

    Know what's weird. I love Heinz. But I have to use Hunt's when I make bbq sauce. When I use Heinz it tastes off for some reason.

    Oh and making your own ketchup isn't that hard either. I did that a few times over the summer.

    Actually no, the "Simply" line is not their organic horseshit. Heinz "Organic" Tomato Ketchup is their organic horseshit.

    And the main reason why you can't taste any of the extra spices and shit in Simply Heinz...is because there are no extra spices and shit in Simply Heinz. The only difference between Simply Heinz and Heinz Original Tomato Ketchup is the sweetener. Simply Heinz has cane sugar, the regular brand has high fructose corn syrup.

    For the record, both Heinz' and Hunts' sugary ketchups are waaaaay better than their HFCS shit. Of course, I'm someone who doesn't buy the corn syrup people's bullshit about how the body doesn't know the difference between real sugar and HFCS.

    Fucking this, Hunt's is some vile shit. Heinz is decent but chipotle ketchup rules

    We get it...too cool for the room guy :killme:

    i never understand this it's like saying 'oh a good piece of meat doesn't need to be seasoned' - of course it does.

    Condiments add a different dimension and, especially if you get the gourmet ones, can add a complexity to enhance the food not mask it.
