    My fry sauce is ketchup and Siracha. It’s great on burgers also.

    Ketchup is mostly sugar, water, and food coloring.

    Perhaps in India, curry ketchup is slathered on food so kids can eat it?

    Fries and ketchup. Who would argue otherwise?

    can't remember the last time I had straight up ketchup as a condiment. I guess I eat it sometimes when I get fry sauce at Freddy's but I never put it on a burger or fries.

    Absolutely not. It is okay as an additive to other condiments. The sauce that I make for my burgers is a combo of mayo, a small amount of ketchup, pickle brine, mustard, and cayenne pepper. It also is great for fries.

    the heinz stuff is ok but not the best. make your own and eat it on a sausage. note that you should preferably be hammered for each of these steps.

    Dang that looks SO good. Right now I dip my grilled cheese sammiches in sriracha ketchup, but curry ketchup sounds even better.

    You just admitted to putting ketchup on your burger. GTFO.

    Plain ketchup is for kids. I don’t put it on my burgers or dogs, and I truly pity anyone over 12 who does. Most fries are better plain than with ketchup. One exception is In n Out fries. Those styrofoam sticks need something to mask their awfulness. But if you douse the ketchup with enough black pepper (like a lot), at least it kills the overall sweetness.

    I don’t pity adults who use ketchup on eggs or hash browns. They are beyond pity and should be doxed.

    In the words of Jim Gaffigan, I'm not a mathematician, but I think everyone is lying.

    I find it interesting that with the current voting 10 yes and 5 no, it's the anti-ketchup snobs who seem the most vocal. Is ketchup shaming really necessary?

    I'm definitely not anti-ketchup, I've just never liked it. Even as a kid I wouldn't dip fries in ketchup. It wasn't until I lived in France that I discovered the beauty of flavored mayonnaise and now I typically use sriracha mayo or some type of garlic mayo.

    Yes. We get to see who is overcompensating for some childhood trauma by hating the most American of condiments.

    I'm tempted to try a 1:1 ratio of sweet to hot paprika in the recipe. My major complaint with ketchup is the stuff is too damn sweet.

    Ketchup definitely has its place and is used off and on for various purposes.

    I would figure out a way to get by without it if I had to, but my life is better with it.

    That's my complaint with Hunt's ketchup....too sweet. But, in Costa Rica, the stuff all tastes like candy, so I liked Kern's as the least sweet option. I had a companion who carried around "emergency" ketchup in his fanny pack. It saved us from having to eat stuff that was gross a couple of times, like boiled liver.
