Product: Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup – $4.99+

Thank you Jungle Jim’s and your amazing prices!  Seriously.  For years now I have been wanting to try Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup.  Because I’m the type of person who puts ketchup on my ketchup.  This is the condiment of my life.  Ketchup is life changing.  It’s good for most things.  And I never have enough of it.  If I were told I could only have one condiment to use for the rest of my life…it would have to be ketchup.

So, when I was paging through the myriad of magazines I get each month…I kept seeing the award winning Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup.  Gourmet ketchup.  GOURMET KETCHUP!!  There was such a thing and I hadn’t tried it yet?  Unfortunately, the few stores I spotted this in had it at a price I seriously couldn’t justify.  So…it never happened.

Why gourmet?  Why this ketchup?

First of all, as I mentioned before, this is award-winning ketchup.  I didn’t know ketchup could win awards.  But this one had and still continues to do so.  And…it is made with only all-natural ingredients.  And you know how much of a stickler I have become about what is in the food I am eating.  This made me happy.

And then Jungle Jim’s up in Cincinnati, Ohio, made me even happier by having this ketchup at a decent price.  You better believe that made it into my grocery basket and then…into my pantry.  And what better time to bust out gourmet ketchup than when you are cooking up veggie burgers and sitting down to the Uruguay v. Costa Rica match of the World Cup.

So, with the burgers constructed, each gluten-free hamburger bun got a liberal serving of the Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup. Had I baked some fries, this would have been served on the side as well for dipping purposes, but I chose to use a product from my June Cuisine Cube (stay tuned for that review!) to serve with the burgers.  So the ketchup was it for the condiment factor and it was teaming up against an amazing veggie burger and the toppings (vegan cheese, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onion, and sliced avocado).  It was really going to have to shine.

Well, it did.  Wow…it did.  What I found I loved best about the taste of Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup was that it wasn’t overly sweet.  It wasn’t heavy.  And it wasn’t too strong.  If you think all ketchup is created equal…think again.  Not only does this one have a very short list of ingredients, but it tastes fresh and clean.  It doesn’t feel bogged down with unnecessary sweeteners and chemicals.  It has a lively, mild flavor.  This is the Captain America of condiments.  This will make you rethink ketchup forever.

The ingredients in Sir Kensington’s Classic Ketchup are basic, simple, and fresh.  They include: tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, raw sugar, onion, honey, olive oil, lime juice concentrate, green bell pepper, salt, agave nectar, and spices.  Simple.  Clean.  And, when combined, a brilliant use of ingredients for ultimate flavor and perfect gourmet ketchup.  The tomatoes they use are never from concentrate.  This brand boasts 50% less sugar (because it’s a condiment, not a confection) and 45% less sodium (because…why pickle yourself) compared with the leading national brand (and I think we all know what brand that might be…).  Don’t you just love it?

As far as nutrition goes, a serving size is 1 tablespoon.  Which is perfect for a condiment (even when I multiply it by 10 sometimes!).  This serving will provide you with 15 calories.  This ketchup is a fat free food!  This ketchup is also cholesterol free.  It contains only 105 mg sodium and 2 grams of sugar.  Ketchup contains no fiber or protein.  But veggie burgers do!  HA!

Oh…this will forever be the ketchup that finds it way into my fridge.  I mean…wow.  Gourmet ketchup.  Yeah…I’m feeling posh as I sit down to watch the World Cup.  My burger has Sir Kensignton’s Classic Ketchup on it.  What about yours?  Hmmm?  You might want to rethink your red sauce.  Give your burgers and fries a gourmet sauce.  You and your food deserve it!
