FTA:

" ...plus it holds three times as much ketchup than a traditional packet."

That sentence just doesn't scan properly.

Carry on.

Looks pretty cool. I wonder if the 'squeeze' feature will waste ketchup, or if you'll actually be able to squeeze it all out of there.

This sentence, he's a good one.

So after lord know how many engineering dollars spent they managed to successfully recreate a container of McDonalds BBQ sauce that has existed for 30+ years.... oop, no wait, there's a pointy spot on on side.... BRILLIANT!

Misuse of an idiom, 5 yd. penalty. Repeat the down.

/three times as much as a traditional packet

This is truly a wonderful time to be alive.

Right here, right now, watching the world wake up from history.

'Bout damn time.

FTFA: For this effort, it bought its design team a used minivan two years ago to test if their ideas really worked while eating on the road.


Right because all we need to be doing is dipping or fries in ketchup while hurling down the highway on our cell phones.

Hold on, I'll be right back. I gotta go dance in the street or something.

friggin Heintz has been playing ketchup since their inception...

2 year lease on a van
3 engineers on the road
Numerous hot dogs, french fries, hamburgers and other tasty tidbits

Cost $3 million dollars

A new ketchup packet design after 40 years?

Priceless.
 
2010-02-04 04:22:56 PM  
Meh...
I like the good ol' fashioned ketchup packet.
I think it's more important that we decide on just one word for ketchup and abolish "catsup".
 
2010-02-04 04:23:12 PM  
I prefer Hunts.
Plus...they didn't include mustard?

the_rev: Looks pretty cool. I wonder if the 'squeeze' feature will waste ketchup, or if you'll actually be able to squeeze it all out of there.


I always wondered as a kid how much ketchup is wasted because people couldn't get it all out of the packet. Oh, and yay for dipping options! Try having a starving 3 year old in the car and all she wants is ketchup on her fries!
 
2010-02-04 04:23:43 PM  
I am going to cry...
 
2010-02-04 04:24:30 PM  
I can finally eat my fries while driving without endangering the public!

I don't understate what you percept is wrong with this sentence. It is parfaitly benevolent in writingtude.

/three times as much as a traditional packet


Three times more than a traditional packet.
Three times as much as a traditional packet.

Where do these people learn to use English so poorly?

Methinks five yards is too light a penalty. Five yards, loss of down, and a public whipping with a dead mullet would seem more appropriate.

NeauxFear: Misuse of an idiom, 5 yd. penalty. Repeat the down.

Or three times more than a traditional packet.

Either way.

PHEW. Back. Good times, dancing in the street.
 
2010-02-04 04:25:35 PM  
Now we need dipping hot sauces, steak sauces, and horseradish.

John Kerry can't be pleased with these swift bloated packets

Because everyone in the car is driving right?
 
2010-02-04 04:26:45 PM  
Wait. does this mean they can start charging for ketchup now? Like for BBQ sauce and ranch?
 
2010-02-04 04:26:49 PM  
they unveiled this "new" design a couple of years ago.
 
2010-02-04 04:27:00 PM  
What I really need is a redesigned semen packet...


mmmm in car bukake..

No, they'll still sell the old ones.

I would love to see them try. The protests would be hilarious.

I'm a fast food and dip-able ketchup packets was my idea

How about "three times more than a traditional packet?"

/Fewer words is better.

Ketchup is a right!

We should get this on the Teabaggers' "Contract From America".

The communications industry has reached the point where it can send a picture of subby's mom through the air to forty million homes, but the catchup industry is still bogged down trying to lick thixotropy.

/obscure?

Dear god, I hate those commercials. I'm a fan of windows 7, neat OS, but every time I see those moronic people I want to buy every mac product I can and use them to coordinate a bomb strike on Seattle.
 
2010-02-04 04:31:56 PM  
Oh please. Take a normal packet, tear it lengthwise about a quarter inch, fold in half lengthwise, squeeze, enjoy.

How hard is that?

Our long national nightmare is over.

Heinz has long struggled to find a design that lets diners dip or squeeze ketchup that could also be sold at a price acceptable to its restaurant customers.

Somehow I suspect every restaurant will use a different brand.
