I used to loathe ketchup. Over the course of adulthood, I have slowly built up a tolerance, and then affection for tomato-based things. Ketchup on fries is pretty good. Especially if it's a fancy flavored ketchup like with curry or mango in it. I'd still rather dip fries in BBQ sauce.

Malt vinegar is really tops, but I mostly use it because of its novelty. If malt vinegar was available everywhere, I'd still probably use ketchup half the time.

Hey, do you guys remember these? Because these were actually magical:



Top 5 invention of the 21st Century. I was fortunate to see these in the wild a few times b/c of living in a test market, and it actually makes my blood boil that they didn't see wider adoption.

There is a bottle of this shining ketchup example in our fridge right now:



Goes great on chicken, burgers, art exhibits, french fries...

what art exhibit? That shit saved my life

Anyway I like ketchup. I used to love it as a kid and put it on many things...but now BBQ kind of shifted my palette towards more savory flavor when it comes to burgers, fries and whatnot.

Every Chik-fil-a in my area has the dip/squeeze packs. They're cool, but their packaging uses non-recyclable plastic which I'm not crazy about.

However, Kraft Heinz has plans to overhaul their global packaging designs as part of a green initiative, so these things (and standard foil packets) could all be going away within the next several years.

Philosophical question: at what point is a sauce with ketchup-like ingredients no longer suitable to be labelled as a ketchup?

Similar: At what point is a commercial ketchup a "Bad" ketchup?

The thing about the dip/squeeze packs is that while they're not recyclable/compostable, neither are normal ketchup packets. And these represent less waste total in theory, so they're a marked improvement over the old status quo. I'd also question any solution to ketchup packets that hinges on their containers being recyclable. Since no recycler wants their plastic covered in rotting food waste.

I'm not usually big on ketchup by itself, but the combination of mustard, mayo and ketchup on a cheeseburger is hard to beat. The three condiments work so well with each other and with the beef.

But... but... I have a connecting flight in Chicago this weekend! I've never been within 500 miles of Chicago, and you literally posted this days before I'm heading there for the first time.

There is no place for ketchup on a chicago dog. By which I mean there is no actual available physical space for it.
