No more liberal ketchup.


McDonald's has lost its taste for Heinz ketchup.

The fast-food giant said in a statement Friday that it is cutting ties with the condiment company after 40 years due to management changes there. A former Burger King CEO became head of Heinz in June after the company was bought by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital. 3G, a Brazilian investment firm, also controls Burger King.

The impact of the change may be tasted more overseas. In the U.S., McDonald's uses Heinz products only in Pittsburgh and Minneapolis restaurants.

"As a result of recent management changes at Heinz, we have decided to transition our business to other suppliers over time," McDonald's Corp. said in a statement. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based restaurant chain did not disclose the value of their business relationship.

Heinz is the only brand that still uses HFCS. Everyone else has gone to cane sugar.

Hunt's doesn't use enough vinegar, so it's too sweet. Trader Joes is my favorite.

If they were true to their beliefs they would use free range tomatoes. The tomatoes that Heinz uses spend their entire life in a 2 foot square area, just like veal calves.

It's the default ketchup for the entire country.

For fun, we once did a blind taste testing of ketchups at a large gathering. Heinz won handily.
