I’m the girl that orders extra ketchup on everything – hot dogs, burgers, and I’ve got to have *lots* of ketchup for my fries. But what I didn’t know is that most ketchup contains High Fructose Corn Syrup. I just assumed that ketchup was made from natural ingredients. Shame on me for not paying closer attention to the labels!
Luckily, Hunt’s has come to my rescue! Their ketchup now contains no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and just 5 simple, all natural ingredients. Hunt’s Ketchup scores a home run in our house!
Mom Central sent me a bottle of the Hunt’s 100% Natural Ketchup to test out. The other evening, I made burgers and fries for dinner. I know, not the healthiest of dinners, but I wanted to get the full taste of the ketchup, and burgers and fries are the best way to do that. (And don’t worry – we had fresh carrot sticks and celery on the side so we got some extra veggies.)
I decided to do a side-by-side taste test of the fries in each ketchup: The Hunt’s 100% Natural Ketchup and the Store Brand Ketchup. I decided the winner of the ketchup taste-off would grace the bun of my burger.
I went with the Store Brand Ketchup first. It was ok. Couldn’t complain. I wouldn’t say it was fabulous, but it was what we usually used, and it was fine.
And then I tasted the Hunt’s. And then I tasted it again. And again. Oh my goodness. Hands down, it was – by far – the best ketchup I’ve ever had. Tangy and sweet and full of flavor. And boy, did it ever taste good on my burger!
My kids are just like me when it comes to ketchup. In fact, they won’t dip their chicken nuggets in anything but ketchup. I wish I had paid attention all those times to the amount of High Fructose Corn Syrup they were getting with our old brand of ketchup. Well, never again. I am committed to using only the best, and Hunt’s wins that title hands down.
Thank you, Hunt’s, for putting out quality products that I can give my family. It’s nice to know there are still companies out there that care.
