Heinz Ketchup Memories

My Mom only bought Heinz ketchup, and today, that is the only ketchup, not catsup, that is allowed in my house. Hey, I will go house brand on a lot of things, but ketchup is not one of them. In school, back in the day of shoestring fries and rectangular pizza, the ketchup they used was just as bad as Hunt’s, but I think it came out of an industrial bulk size can made by Del Monte, or if we got packets, they were solid white, with a picture of a tomato on it, with the word “catsup” printed on it. You had to make sure to alternate squeezing both ends before you opened the package to mix it up, nothing worse than pouring the settled catsup juice on your burger, hot dog, pizza, or fries. I like for my ketchup to glob onto the french fry, not just stain it, like I was dipping them in a bowl of tomato soup…

I remember Carly Simon singing to me as I waited for that good ole’ Heinz ketchup…

Barbara found out where she stands against Heinz ketchup..

Trying to get some of that Star Wars feel..

Finally, a strange jukebox ad from Canada..

I do remember buying the Heinz EZ Squirt line for my kids, they came out in 2000, remember them? It was colored and flavored ketchup, like Blastin’s Green, Stellar Blue, and Funky Purple. As seen below, I can’t imagine why it did not last..

I love Heinz and the Heinz brand, just glad I don’t live in the UK where they offer these gems..
