Heinz Makes Sriracha Ketchup Now

heinz-sriracha

Ketchup has been the reigning king of condiments for generations now. However sriracha, due to its cult following and crippling-addictiveness, is gaining ground on ketchup. Catsup never stood a chance.

Heinz, feeling the paradigm shift in the condiment continuum, is now taking the “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em approach, and has released Sriracha Ketchup. This, or course, will save time for those who are still mixing their sriracha and ketchup to put on anything that goes into their pie-hole.

For those who think sriracha IS ketchup… carry on, and keep doing what you do.

The Chemistry of Sriracha

sriracha-science

Finally, our addiction to Sriracha is explained… With science. The Chemistry of Sriracha, by The American Chemical Society, not only explains why the hot chili sauce beckons us like an irresistible sea nymph — but also how Sriracha is able to retain its hypnotic red color for so long.

The culprits are actually a combination of endorphin-releasing capsaicinoids and color-retaining preservatives. Just the very mention of Sriracha leads to enormous traffic spikes on food culture sites such as this one. And, you can’t argue with science.
