The Grossness of Green Ketchup: Throwback Thursday
Remember when the team at Heinz suffered from a bout of temporary insanity and put out green ketchup for the American public to consume?
Yeah, it was around Y2K (year 2000, for the babies who went “HUH?”). Actually, they had purple ketchup too but that’s close to red so I wasn’t as grossed out.
GREEN KETCHUP, though.
I am weird about food textures (and colors) so looking at green ketchup always made me lose my appetite. My gag reflex be all “might don’t make it.” That was just from sight alone! I never got as far as tasting it because it just looked like it would taste like liquid grass and desperation. Yes, I just assume it was gross, like the overgrown picky eater that I am.
Rumor was that it tasted the same as regular ketchup but NO MA’AM!!! That is yellow journalism and propaganda I will not fall for. I don’t believe them. The rumors need more people. The way my brain is set up, and perception bias, I ain’t gon believe it!
If God intended for ketchup to be green, He wouldn’t have invented red food coloring. Green ketchup is barbaric and I did not (and will not) stand for it!
My mom never bought that abomination into our house nor did she offer to do so, because she loved me and wished me well. Alls I know is that any mention of green ketchup makes me scowl.
Did any of you taste green ketchup? If so, please leave. I KEED! But for real. Were you a fan of the green? If so, let me know so I can break up with you. (-_____-)
