Fruity Ketchups

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

I love ketchup. Even if I don't know the correct spelling whether it be Heinz's spelling of "catsup" or Del Monte's "ketchup" and even others spelled "kechup", I still love it.

I do love the original tomato ketchup, the sour kind. I love garnishing french fries, meat, pizza, fish and just about anything with kechup.

For me, ketchup is made from tomato and nothing else. So I don't like banana ketchups like Jufran and UFC. One exception is when I eat at Max's Chicken. They don't serve any tomato ketchup. Surprisingly enough, banana ketchup is a good mix with their chicken.

So seeing this new ketchup product had my eyebrows raised and mouth wide open in astonishment.

My sole reaction was...

"APPLE ?!??!?!?!?!"

I hope they don't come out with pineapple, melon or guava ketchups.

I just don't dig fruit-flavored ketchups. Wait a minute. Is tomato a fruit ?

  1. I love ketchup too Sweetie and like you I don't know which is the right spelling of catshup, ketshup, kechap, in Indonesia it's kecap! Arggghhh! Basta I love it especially on my eggs for breakfast (kelangan masanay ka na Sweetie).

    Oh... and tomato is a vegetable :p

  2. Botanically, a tomato is the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant: therefore it is a fruit. However, the tomato is not as sweet as those foodstuffs usually called fruits and, from a culinary standpoint, it is typically served as part of a salad or main course of a meal, as are vegetables, rather than at dessert in the case of most fruits.
