FYI, Heinz Ketchup Truffles Are A Relationship Killer

There was time, not so long ago, where it was commonplace for folks to make their own ketchup, usually with the biggest stockpot they owned and with an assist from Judy Garland. Today, we don’t have to worry about whether it’s sour or much too flat as we accept that Heinz Ketchup is the only ketchup that ever ketchup’d. Plus, it’s everywhere.
Even inside a chocolate box.
Heinz UK partnered with confectionary wizards Fortnum & Mason for Valentine’s Day this year to create ketchup chocolate truffles because nothing says “I love you” quite like a box full of chocolates filled with a questionable condiment. Yes, this year for “ValenHeinz,” the mad scientists from both of these brands decided that everyone needs the “unmistakable taste of Heinz Tomato Ketchup” filtered through delicious, velvety chocolate.
The red and cyan colored heart-shaped box with gold etchings comes with all of the familiar trappings of a lavish treat from Fortnum & Mason, the kind of elevated sweet that doesn’t come with fry juice but insists that a little ketchup never hurt a delicious truffle.
This isn’t the first time Heinz has tried to ruin the magic of forced romance, as they released ketchup caviar last year, a move in what now seems like the first attempt to forever tarnish this greeting card holiday and, likely, your marriage.
Anyway, don’t anyone tell Ed Sheeran about this.
