Review of "Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Squeezy Bottle"
Oh well, thought I'd pop by to see how all you folks are doing :) Kate is now 9 months old and is a little darling :)
Oh well, I thought writing an opinion about Baked Beans would be a challenge and it was, but now I have decided to go one further, by actually writing an opinion on Tomato Sauce, yes, Heinz Tomato Ketchup, so here goes.Before I start, lets make one thing clear, I am a Tomato Ketchup freak, you give me a plate of anything that is compatible with Tomato Ketchup, and I will literally splatter the stuff on like there’s no tomorrow.
What is Heinz Tomato Ketchup?Well, do I really have to answer this? As surely there can’t be a person in Britain that has not had the pleasure (or displeasure for some) of that lovely tomato flavoured sauce on their plate.
Heinz Tomato Ketchup is produced by pureeing Tomatoes, and adding Heinz’s own secretly kept recipe of mixed spices, it is these same secret spices that give Heinz their unique taste, a taste that cannot be found in any of their counterparts attempted copies of the stuff. Not only is their Tomato Ketchup delicious and in some cases a pure necessity it also contains lots of very useful vitamins as well as vital antioxidants.Antioxidants? What are they?
Antioxidants are actually a vital part of our nutritional diet, what they actually do is go around our body and clean it of free radicals, free radicals are a very harmful little bugger, that goes around attacking healthy cells inside our body, causing illnesses such as Cancer, etc, so the fact that Tomato Ketchup is an excellent source (no pun intended) of these Antioxidants is an excellent bonus. Tests have actually proven that there are five times more of these Antioxidants present in Heinz’s processed Tomatoes, than there is in a fresh uncooked Tomato, due to their cooking process and that these are more digestible than the ones actually found in fresh Tomatoes.Come on Brian, enough of the science lesson, what about the stuff, what does it taste like?
Well, Tomatoes! No seriously, it is very hard to actually describe the taste of Heinz Tomato Sauce and I guess the only way to describe it is, a tangy and sweet taste, a taste that can liven up a plate of boring chips or turn a Cornish Pastie into something a bit more exciting.
Where does the word “Ketchup” come from?It is said that the word Ketchup originates from the Port of Singapore, where English sailors came across a local sauce called “Kecap”, this sauce was made up from Fish stock and various Spices and Herbs, it was a staple diet of the Asians and something they used to compliment their Rice or Fish dishes.
When the sailors arrived back home, they attempted to copy this sauce, but by altering the ingredients to things that were more accessible in Britain, i.e. Mushrooms, Cucumbers, etc, they eventually came across the Tomato version and that was it, that is what we now know as Tomato Ketchup.Heinz actually started producing their own unique brand as early as 1876, and is now a worldwide institution, it is also said that there are actually a larger volume of Tomatoes actually used to produce a bottle of their Ketchup, than the actual volume of the bottle, it is something like 150 g of Tomatoes are used to produce 100 g of Ketchup.
Heinz Tomato Ketchup is available in various bottles, but the new (well newish) squeezy bottle version is by far the best, gone are the days when you had to stick your knife into the bottle to try and scrape some scraps out, gone are the days of endless hand-shaking and bottle bashing, now it’s just a case of give the bottle a little squeeze and out oozes that delicious Ketchup, all over your plate of chips, yum, now tuck into them and enjoy that unforgettable taste of Heinz Tomato Ketchup.
