Heinz Sriracha Ketchup is finally making its way over to the U.S., giving a much-needed kick to dishes everywhere. The new product will be launched at major retailers like Walmart and Target for a reasonable $2.69 a bottle.
Heinz said in a statement that they feel confident the new ketchup will pair well with foods that need the sweetness of ketchup tempered by a kick of spice.
“The new offering adds a new kick to your favorite foods and recipes, pairing well with cheeseburgers, French fries and hot dogs, and is the perfect flavor boost for chicken and eggs,” Brand Manager Joseph Giallanella said in a press statement.
Though fans of sriracha are losing their minds over the new product, there are other spicy Heinz ketchups already on the market including ketchup blended with jalapeno, ketchup slended with balsamic vinegar and ketchup blended with Tabasco sauce.
Sure, all sorts of condiments have gotten the Heinz treatment, but fans of sriracha know that it’s not like the others. The sriracha shortage of 2014 sent spice fans into a panic as the popular chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt Thai product couldn’t keep up with massive demand. Fortunately, the tragedy passed, and you can even carry around sriracha on a keychain for all your emergency spice needs.
Here’s to you, sriracha ketchup – we who can’t handle the actual sauce salute you.
