Ketchup update

I noted that the healthists in the States are wrecking Heinz ketchup.

The best news of this morning?
Dear Dr Crampton,
Thank you for taking the time to contact us about our Heinz Ketchup.
We have no plans to change the Heinz Ketchup product that we sell into the NZ market, at present.
Thank you for your query.

Yours sincerely,

Serena Olsen
Consumer Service Consultant
Phew! The "at present" is slightly worrying, but I'll take it as good sign overall.


  1. An opportunity for grey market ketchup?

  2. Ah, for shipments back to the US? Fixed costs will be high, but I'm happy to come to some arrangement with folks if need be :>

  3. Happiness is... Ketchup on homemade cheeseburgers and chips.

  4. I grew up with Watties tomato sauce, which I find so vile that the smell of it makes me gag, although I like tomato in pretty much every other context. So on your recommendation I went and bought a bottle of Heinz ketchup tonight, and it's great!

    Thanks very much, food recommendations may not be why I read this blog, but I'll take whatever spillover benefits I can get.

  5. @James K: I feel a warming in the sub-coccle regions of the heart. Glad to be of service.
