I think I mentioned awhile back that I bought a bottle of Heinz Organic Ketchup, a new product the manufacturer has come out with to feed the organic and anti-high-fructose-corn-syrup movement. We've now been eating that ketchup for a couple of months and I'm happy to say the product exceeded my expectations.
Taste: In a side-by-side comparison, it tastes incredibly similar to the original product. I doubt any ketchup-loving kid would notice if you swapped it out. The color of it is a bit darker and the texture is a little less glossy, but not in a bad way. I personally thing it tastes better.
Ingredients: Heinz didn't just cheat here and use organic tomatoes with their regular recipe. Every ingredient on the label is a vegetable and it's sweetened with organic sugar rather than corn-based sweeteners. They get extra points for this.
Recommendation: I highly recommend this product. It's about 50 cents to a dollar more than their regular ketchup but it's well worth the price. Pairs just as well with tater tots and chicken fingers as the original recipe.
