I wonder if this product from Ketchup World actually tastes like the original which had a certain something different from the usual ketchup. It added a spice that gave it a unique taste (allspice?)


    yah it is fairly easy to find in this region, but i agree it's not the same. (yet still probably better IMO than regular Heinz). the factory for Brook's used to be in downstate IL (in Collinsville, where the giant 'catsup' bottle still is--brook's is a 'catsup' place not ketchup). they still have the catsup bottle, but the brand has been sold and resold. It's now owned by Bird's Eye Foods, which you may recognize in the frozen veggie aisle. The ketchup itself is made in Canada but has HFCS in it now.

    also, to revisit my "canadian ketchup" is better, "what is liquid sugar" post. It's not HFCS as others somewhere guessed/assumed, it's actually sugar. I found this fairly recent post on another food forum, which I find helpful in a number of ways (including that the breakdown of Heinz in the US, and that our organic ketchup actually comes from Canada but is made with Californian tomatoes):

    OtherForum wrote:There are quite a few types [of Heinz ketchup varieties].... but understand that taste varies based on the paste used to make it. The finest paste is from Leamington, ON Canada. Its used to make all of Canada's ketchup and roughly 25% of US supply ... mainly found in the northern US states. The ketchup made for the Canadian market differs from the US recipe with about 25% less sugar and salt, as well it uses liquid invert sugar rather than the HFCS used for the US. Organic is made to a Canadian standard as far as sugar and salt levels are concerned, and the sugar is organic evaporated cane juice. US ketchup for the mid/southern states is made with California paste, HFCS and the high salt/sugar levels.

    That sounds alot like the US Men Hockey teams' Silver metals: they came from Canada from a rink cleaned with a California made Zamboni.

    In other ketchup news: Lunch today at GNR Patty's Diner revealed that Kroger Ketchup is now being offered. This is a rare chance for Chicago bound ketchup lovers to try an out of market brand. Sorry, I can't comment on the taste because, although I've seen it used for eggs, I didn't want any on my two scrambled easy.

    I thought this might belong here -- a repurposed chocolate fountain with ketchup running through it.

    Hi,

    I was at New York Bagel and Bialy the other night. I was wearing a Mustard Museum t-shirt. The counter guy was pretty amused, then shared a new use for ketchup: He works for a restaurant nearby whose clients will slather catsup on their pancakes.

    This is news to me.

    Regards,

    It's not an exaggeration to say that this will likely change ketchup eating as you know it: http://foodbeast.com/content/2012/08/01 ... all-wrong/

    Counterfeit Heinz Ketchup

    ...
    Officials discovered the fake ketchup factory after tenants complained about flies and rotten odors coming from another part of the 7,000-square-foot warehouse in Dover, N.J. They found thousands of plastic bottles labeled Heinz ketchup, many of which had exploded after being abandoned in the hot building.

    ...

    Heinz representatives say that they think someone bought large containers of regular Heinz Ketchup and poured it into bottles labeled "Simply Heinz," a higher-priced product made with cane sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. Late Friday, they reached out to reassure consumers, saying that it was unlikely the counterfeit condiment ended up on store shelves.

    Did George Washington use Ketchup?

    O.k., so it may be an absurd question. The answer, however, is probably…but it may not be what you think.

    We were in Texas a few weeks ago and my daughter noticed that the ketchup tasted 'funny'. Of course all tables everywhere had Hunts brand. We in Illinois seem to favor Heinze. She thought it was too sweet.

    I bought this a while ago, and have not been able to find it in stores since.

    Red Gold + Sriracha from Rooster.

    Online is too expensive. This was the best ketchup I've tasted so far. I now use Aldi Simply Organic stuff, and it's good. But not this good! I can of course add them together, but I don't always get the proportions tight!
