Heinz Organic Tomato Ketchup - better than the original

It is the miracle. The only product that has bested its original version.

Nobody’s pulled this off, not Coke, not anyone.

I wanted to pull this out of a different post because this product is so mind-blowing amazing. Chris VR wrote in this post of the Canadian version of Heinz Ketchup ...

“I recently tasted the Canadian version and it's like drinking Coke with cane sugar- it's a taste I remember from my childhood but forgot I wasn't tasting any more.”

Yeah, that’s it ... only for the first time in my life, something was BETTER than the memory.

Really, I’m not one to fool with my ketchup. I’ll tolerate fancy, fresh from the garden ketchup from fancy restaurants ... but it is not ... Heinz.

Looking to see if I could cut and paste the ingrediants (amazing) I came across this guy who had the same reaction. He said “Heinz Tomato Ketchup is good. But their Organic version definitely tastes better. Much more tomatoey whilst still being distinctly recognisable as Heinz”


Heinz doesn’t list the ingrediants on the site ... they should ... proudly.

Organic tomato concentrate made from red ripe organic tomatoes, organic distilled vinegar, organic sugar, salt, organic onion powder, organic spices, natural flavoring.

They do say

"Heinz Organic Ketchup is produced at Heinz's Leamington, Canada facility, using red-ripened tomatoes from the company's organic tomato fields in Escalon, California."

For those of you in the SF Bay area, it is in the organic section of Raley’s market - $2.29 ... I’d pay five bucks for it and not blink.

Thanks Chris VR. Your description gave me the incentive to give this a try.
