No. They're all too sweet. I finally bought some ketchup after about fifteen years, about a year ago, for one recipe (a certain pan fried noodle recipe). There it sits.

@chai2,
no, of course not, I don't use ketchup. I guess there are people that do eat ketchup, I see it in the market, but I have no idea why. Oh wait, yeah I have used ketchup to make cocktail sauce (with horse radish) for shrimp. probably generic.

@chai2,
Most likely not. But why ask such a seemingly arbitrary question?

@chai2,
I can't tell which comes from which, like in a blind taste test, but I can tell the difference from one to the other, just in taste.

And I can sure tell the difference in price! Wink

No. I buy Heinz anyway. It's the Sam's carried brand and it's cheaper. Of course, that means that I've got maybe 1 1/2 gal of the stuff on the shelf right now. No problem. I like ketchup.

chai2 is looking for a playdate with someone who shares her taste in ketchup.

Which brands? I like Heinz better than any others I have tried, including the organic brands. But that may be that like so many others, that is the brand I grew up with.

@chai2,
I think that you have brought up a good point. I think that many people have a psychological problem with much of what they think are the best of products.

I do think that if you blind tested people on products, many will choose products that they thought were less in quality.

Yes! In fact, I just threw away a jar of Hunt's ketchup because I like Heinz better. Hunt's sucks! Heinz is the king of the ketchups!

@dyslexia,
Don't think Zeth was the tagger.

I'm interested in tags, get it that you aren't. You wait for the rest of us to tag your threads, in case we ever want to find them again, which some of us might.

@kickycan,
We buy Heinz because Hunt's, the #2 brand, has a higher worm content. I read that somewhere. Better safe than sorry. Unless you like worms.
