Found this at the market yesterday. It tastes like tomato. It comes in a glass bottle. If they can do this, why don’t they do it on their “regular” ketchup?
Was it more expensive?
Yes, and that is likely,the answer
I guess they also face competition from brands like Sir Kensington, which also tastes like tomatoes.
By now, most people want ketchup to taste like ketchup, not tomatoes, alas.
Now I have to look for Heinz Vintage at the grocery store. Thank you, @winecountrygirl!
Here’s an interesting read I just saw about the history of ketchup as an iconic industrialized American flavor. My uncle used to say that he liked to “put ketchup on his ketchup,” and I imagine he had lots of company in that.
