In all fairness it’s hard to beat Heinz. I mean, I can’t even begin to count how many restaurants have tired to make their own “homemade” ketchup and failed miserably in the process. And Hunt’s? Please. I’d rather put hair on my burger. But as indomitable as Heinz is, after it’s glorious 113 year reign at the top, the king has finally been pushed off it’s thrown… by a queen.
Annie’s Ketchup not only tastes more like it’s made from real tomatoes, it also manages not to taste too healthy either. I know that sounds like a backhanded compliment but I mean it in the best way possible. After all, it’s not like Heinz is the bastion of wholesome ingredients. It taste the way it does because of vinegar and judicious amounts of sugar. Well, I’m not sure how Annie’s goes about it, but whatever they do, they make my heart sing. Because they give you the best of both worlds.
