The color seems off....

I have a little time to myself in the office right now, everyone’s at lunch and it’s pretty quiet (which is good because I had a hell of a night last night and this morning was insane here!) So being I passed on lunch today because my stomach is quite knotted and I decided to take advantage of the solace here and browse through FoodGawker and TasteSpotting.

Searching through the pages of both I saw the same photo and caption for Blue Tacos, and it made me remember a few years back when Heinz was making colored Ketchup. I remember it in green, red, blue pink and purple (Ewwwwwwww!) I bought the Green one on request by The Kid and he took one look at it on his hamburger and on the plate with his french fries, looked at me and told me he wasn’t hungry anymore.. He must have been about 4 or 5 at the time.. So funny.. It sat in the fridge for months until I finally tossed the whole damn bottle.

I have a thing against eating food that isn’t the color that it’s supposed to be.. Blue soda, ice cream that’s just a little too green or a neon color that just does not naturally occur.

UGH! Pictures, Images and Photos

green ketchup sounds really weird! im not a fan of ketchup, so i dont like the red stuff either! i read somewhere that ketchup is brown before the red coloring is added to it.

wow! i've never seen colored ketchup! i've never seen the peppermint coffeemate here that you had either. one of the guys at the office thought you should go into business selling the coffeemate. it sounded like a bad idea to me at first, but now i'm not so sure!
