Well, I did it: Ketchup goes in GLASS jars from now on

Yep, you heard right. I'm getting sick of the weird Skank Plastic Bottle Syndrome taste that I get from having a plastic bottle of ketchup in the fridge in as little as a week.

Today, I bought a brand new bottle of ketchup and immediately put it in a glass jar.

FIGHT S.P.B.S.!!!11!!!

Hmm...I've never had that problem. And I go through a lot of ketchup, mostly with the plastic bottles.
I also don't put mine in the fridge, never have.

Of course, you could also buy the ketchup that's, you know, already in the glass bottles.
Sam's Club used to carry cases of the restaurant bottles. Very handy. They may still, we don't go there anymore, and BJ's only has a two pack of 60.6 ounce plastic bottles. Probably cheaper per ounce, but those smaller glass bottles were convenient.

How do you squeeze it out of a glass jar?

You don't squeeze it.

You shake it.

Ergo, my banana:

You got it. In a few months, we'll be able to squeeze it on Warmonger Fries.

I don't transfer my ketchup to anything new, but I always liked how it tasted out of those diner type bottles.


My be psychological, but it always tasted the best out of those.

I can understand where you are coming from, though. I think just about everything tastes better out of glass containers. I especially miss pop in glass bottles.

Why not get the packets from McDonalds or something? Not only will it not have the plastic taste, bottle break, but it is free.

At the beginning of the bottle. When you start running low, you smack it on the side. If it's Heinz, you smack it on the "57."


I've never experienced S.P.B.S with my ketchup before, and I always buy the big 50 ounce bottles (I put ketchup on a lot of meals.) The only bad ketchup taste experience I've had is when it's not Heinz brand.

It takes you over a week to go through a ketchup bottle?

It takes me about 3 weeks to get through a large bottle.

That's why I prefer glass bottles. They keep the taste better...longer. I guess if I went through a plastic bottle in less than a week, I wouldn't have any problems.

McDonalds packets are teh suck. Heinz is the only way to go.

Well, and oddly enough, one "store brand" I have found is close.

Hunts, or most restaurant packets that are not Heinz, are teh suck.
