Yeah, pretty neat until you fark up and end up dumping the entire satchel of ketchup on your lap.

This can be somewhat inconvenient, however, if you're driving and trying to balance holding your food and condiments without spilling or making a mess.

Don't do this while driving!

I tear a small hole in the packet and use it like a cake icer, and leave it with the fries so it doesnt' get squished. Or, if it does, the fries get drenched instead of me.

I have the best hack of all: give up putting ketchup on your French fries.

It worked for me!

I do not for one second believe that a small child has the manual dexterity to consistently open a ketchup packet like that without causing a huge mess.

Wait, running over them with your car wasn't the right way to do it?

This is the way.

Use mayonnaise instead, like a civilized person.

Ain't no one eating french fries and ketchup in any car of mine.

Joke's on you, silly.

I only use mustard.

But what about ranch? Honey mustard, garlic aioli, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, cheese sauce, gravy, even tartar sauce?

Basically EVERYTHING tastes better on crispy taters than ketchup!

(Although once in a blue moon regular ketchup on tater tots is a pure delight)

Ketchup is a pretty perfect mixture of umami, sweet, and tangy. I like mixing it with mayo for some creaminess, too, but ketchup is great with potatoes.

How about waiting to get home or at least parking before shoveling more garbage food into your gaping maw?

No? Okay, carry on then with the distracted driving.

"Ketchup satchel"? Sounds like EMT slang.

Sure! Pay people enough so that they have an option other than shoveling food in their faces while driving.

Isn't that Chic-fil-a ketchup?  I think that may be the only place I've encountered those packets.

I just find it too sweet. My fav is some kind of lemon-garlic mayo dip concoction

OR home fries pushed into a mix of hollandaise and runny egg yolk on a plate with eggs benedict.

Super unhealthy, but so SO delicious!

I wonder how many people take as many of them as possible and put them in a ketchup bottle at home? I know I don't. Genius but cheap.

You're killing me here. There's a place in Seattle called the Kona Kitchen where you can get a spam eggs Benedict. I like going there once in a while just to remind me of how cool Hawaii is. They also have ukulele nights.

Unfortunately the matriarch died from covid last year but the family is keeping it going. Hope they can make it through this pandemic.
