Ketchup Shaming

I love ketchup. Heinz ketchup, specifically. And I CAN tell the difference. Hunt's is nasty. Anything called "catsup" is gross crap. I heart Heinz.

Sometimes I feel weird asking for ketchup in nice restaurants. I just want my ordering experience to go smoothly. Especially after a traumatic experience at a certain restaurant. I asked for ketchup. I didn't get a "I'm sorry we don't have ketchup." I got a "We marinated that for 24 hours. (looking down his nose at me) I THINK you will find it to your liking. (you child)." So since that moment. I smuggle ketchup into restaurants.

I have fashioned a ketchup conduit. It's made out of an empty tone's spice container. Here it is!

I just put the top on, put it in my purse and I'm good to go!

But this got me looking online. I don't know why I never have before. I've done this many times. Do you know there is a website out there called KETCHUP WORLD?! Why didn't I know?

Thank goodness there's someone out there who loves ketchup as much as I do. Husband & I just had a talk today ironically about our first date and how I distinctly noticed he didn't care that ketchup wasn't with the fries. Little did I know he wasn't a condiment person.

I am! I like meat moist and/or with sauce or ketchup. I can't believe the waiter snob!!

LOL. I understand your smuggling.

YES! Someone cut from the same ketchup cloth as myself!

I think some chefs must think it's some sort of slam against their food. Not the case. Just, ketchup makes everything so great.

I would totally notice if someone wasn't using ketchup with their fries too! It blows my mind! Why? Why would they choose to go ketchupless?

Even food I make that's really tasty and juicy, I still put ketchup on it. It's an accent. Baked potatoes, steak especially, chicken, fries..etc.

I guess it has to do with your food upbringing or something. He likes dill pickles and grew up on that, I like both dill and bread&butter (I grew up on that). I grew up w/ketchup, he didn't.

No mustard or ketchup on a hamburger is so lacking in my book, but that's what he does. :-)

KC, you are totally right--thereis only one kind of ketchup, and I once read consumer reports--they agree with you and me, the original is the best :) I MISS THE OLD SCHOOL GLASS BOTTLES though.

Yeah! Heinz enthusiasts unite!

I also grew up on bread and butter pickles, ketchup and all that. I think ketchup love runs deep on my Dad's side. My grandpa is also a ketchup fiend. And also, a sugary cereal lover. Adds sugar to his frosted flakes. So I'm blaming genetics.

when mason was little, he loved ketchup the way you do. He wanted it all the time, on most everything. Today, he cannot stand it. Hates even the smell of it. Eats his fries NEKKID!!!!! is very strange no?

That's very weird! Wonder what happened. He had to have suffered some bad ketchup experience for it to come to this. Perhaps a CATSUP experience.
