Boom, mind blown. I don’t know if I’m alone here or not, but I love mixing shit with ketchup: Sriracha, mango habanero hot sauce, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, Tabasco, A1 Steak Sauce, mayonnaise, Teriyaki, and literally endless other sauces. But up until now I never thought about what would happen if you replaced the white wine vinegar in Ketchup with balsamic vinegar.
That’s what Heinz is doing for their 58th variety of sauce. The high class fancy ketchup was given a test run in the UK earlier this year, where I guess it did well, because now it’s coming to America – at first only to Heinz’s Facebook fans (starting November 14), with a nationwide release in the following months. But don’t miss out – it’s only available for a limited time.
You’ll be able to spot it from afar by the black label and its ‘luxury’ restaurant-style 14-oz glass bottles. Unfortunately, you have to pay for that balsamic vinegar, because that shit doesn’t come free. Bottles are slightly more expensive than their middle class brethen, but it’s worth it for “the richer, more sophisticated side of America’s Favorite Ketchup.”
