I have a confession to make... I am obsessed with ridding our pantry of high fructose corn syrup. It is easier said that done! One of the biggest problems has been our ketchup. I do enjoy making our own food, and ketchup is high on my list, but that doesn't help me right now. Now, before tomatoes are available locally I am out of luck and at the mercy of our store shelves. I think my DH & I spent 20 minutes reading the back of every ketchup available at our grocery store. The result? We only found one brand that didn't contain the cow plumping high fructose corn syrup we were trying so hard to avoid. We bought it. But, at almost $5 a bottle, I was in pain. Well, in my wallet.
My toddler can eat large amounts of tomatoes with his diet and he is really into the dipping action. But, anyone with toddlers can vouch that more "dip-dip" gets wasted than eaten. And a bottle of ketchup goes fast!
I was excited to see that large companies are taking notice of consumers being pickier eaters... Hunts just launched a ketchup that is 100% natural. No additives or high fructose corn syrup in the recipe. The label doesn't contain a bunch of hard to read names or scary sounding preservatives. So, I bought a bottle. I want the big companies to know that we love this "new" approach. Simple is good. And the price? At under $2 it was much easier on our budget. So my son is back in "dip-dip" thanks to Hunts.
