Twice As Much Ketchup Packets - Heinz Understands Our Needs!

When our intern Randy came back the other day with burgers and fries for the staff from a local Mom & Pop burger barn he had something in the feedbags that really was a big hit with us here. Heinz now offers a 'Twice As Much' ketchup packet.

As we all know, those standard old ones were hardly even worth the effort of tearing each one open. We do not expect these to become the standard free packets at other burger places as they must cost the restauranteur perhaps twice as much as the standards. The place we got them from makes homemade style burgers and fries and it costs about 6.00 to get a decent burger and big sack of homemade fries.

Respect to Heinz for a truly innovative and useful new condiment packet portion. The packet you see above measures 4.25" x 1.33" in size and has 0.635 oz(18g) of product.

Mark my words, this is just the first step in charging you for extra ketchup packets.

Everyone knew the game before: there was so little ketchup in the old packets it wasn't worth charging for them. They just gave you a whole handful, half of which you wound up throwing away because it was so much work getting enough ketchup for your fries. You wound eating the last of your cold fries plain.

First they charged for the tartar sauce and I did not speak out because I did not dig fish.

Then they charged for the honey mustard and I did not speak out because I didn't do chicken nuggets.

Then they charged for the ranch dressing and I did not speak out because I was not into salad.

Then they charged for ketchup packets and there was no one left to speak out.

We make our ketchup packets the old-fashioned way... we earn them.
