Did you know we are running out of ketchup? Well, ketchup packets. You see the past year has really changed the face of the restaurant industry and one of the main ways is portable condiments. Except there is a little more nuance to this situation left out of that. The truth is Heinz, the king of ketchup, is running out of it's famous condiment. What does this mean for the future? Well, I have a theory...

  • That generic ketchup is called GSF ketchup aka manufactured at golden state foods city of industry. It’s basically the same as jack in the box, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, del taco, and yes even Hunts so it’s not hunts time to shine bcuz it’s manufactured from the same recipe and not even produced by hunts themselves but at this plant in cali instead. (Georgia and Texas plants as well) .. there is also NO such shortages for these restaurants even for McDonald’s I would know as I work in the plant and specifically in ketchup department. Work is going by as usual, the ketchup itself is easy to make and package, it’s also tastes terrible compared to Heinz that I myself don’t even eat it as it’s basically less tomato paste and more fructose and corn syrup... sugar water at this point.. the only difference in recipe is when it’s manufactured for outside the US where it is made sweeter because those countries like it that way (which is basically ketchup sugar water at that point)

  • i noticed the other day when i went through a drive thru , they gave me ketchup packets without me having to ask. 1st time since the 1980s this has happened. WOW ! i almost cried. And it was Heinz , not just the cheapest generic ketchup they could find,

  • Theory idea did Mc Donals recycle ketchup. In my local Mc Donalds I saw one of the employees grabbing a tinny ketchup cup that was from a table that a customer was on, then I saw the employees put the used ketchup inside the ketchup dispenser.but this was before the pandemic but it was in January of 2020 so the answer is YES they where recycling Ketchup.
