This Is The Biggest Crisis Nationwide And It Hasn't Even Hit Us Yet

Ketchup is a lifesaver for some people. Picky eaters worldwide rely on ketchup to make food they dislike way more palette-able. Even for the non-picky eaters, it’s still just a common condiment to find in one's kitchen. Yesterday Heinz confirmed that it’s staring down the barrel of a ketchup packet shortage

    This could also impact other brands going forward. A handful of chain restaurants in the states have said that packet numbers are dwindling, but delivery is rising. This means you’d still be fine buying bottled ketchup…for now. But it’s not the same getting delivery or fast food from McDonald’s and not getting a million ketchup packets, one mustard, and maybe a salt packet. Heck, for my birthday last year people got me hot sauce packets that I still haven’t used, but it’s nice to know they’re there just in case. The other thing to consider is we’re Canadians so we’ve got French’s ketchup and we still have ketchup chips
