I voted "Dude, I so don't care" because ketchup is ketchup to me :D I iz not picky so long as the bottle does not say catsup

See, I always thought I was that way myself and then after eating Heinz forever, I got Hunts because it was on sale and I actually noticed a difference.

ETA: I read your strike-out and I agree heartily with your strike-out's meaning in that the word "catsup" should be stricken from the English language.

My mother switches around to whatever is on sale so I've grown up eating the different kinds. I'm not a very picky person. However, I can tell the difference between a caffeinated and non-caffeinated soda so maybe I just keep the picky for certain things.

AND WHO EVEN INVENTED THE WORD CATSUP? SRSLY?

Catsup is a weird and troublesome word...

I vote Heinz because I don't think I've seen Hunts here in the UK? Either way, I probably still would have picked it.

I'm actually not. I just was making a hot dog, put ketchup on it and was like, hmm, I wonder if I'm the only who has such a distinct preference. It took liie two seconds to post this.

We have the Jewel (Albertson's) brand organic ketchup that has no high fructose corn syrup in it that tbh, I actually prefer. I hate HFCS, try to eat as little of it as possible.

Good for you, much, much healthier. If I found a guy who was into healthy eating, I'd be so much more healthy because I'm not against eating healthy, I'm just lazy as all get-out and unhealthy food is easier/quicker/cheaper to make. I would need someone I loved and who loved me to get my ass in gear to eat better.

I wouldn't say I eat that healthy all the time, but I grew up without hfcs around for the most part so it usually just seems way too sweet to me. I can't even drink soda, haha.

I prefer Heinz over Hunts though, for SURE. That's what I grew up with...the hfcs-free stuff didn't used to exist, haha.

I usually go for Heinz (or the Swedish brand Felix). My mom had bought one of the cheaper brands one time, and it didn't even taste like proper ketchup.

Definitely Heinz. I accidentally got Hunts the last time I went shopping and I could tell it didn't taste the same (without looking at the bottle). I thought there was something wrong with it, like the expiration date passed.

First time posting on your journal and it's about ketchup. O_o
